Things to do for November 17, 2011

The Weekender

An Early Thanksgiving, a Milk Bar and the City’s New Sausage King

The weekend misses Rondo. It just does.

Thursday
Landing Some Cashmere Slippers
SALE-ING

Landing Some Cashmere Slippers

Lately, the retail space at 71 Newbury has been abandoned. But from today until Sunday, it’s functioning as the sample-sale war room for Sferra, an Italian linens purveyor that also makes slippers. Grab up to 70% off towels, sheets, duvet covers... and cashmere slippers. Aka Ron Burgundy’s house shoes.

Now through Nov 20, 10:30am-4pm, 71 Newbury St, 212-543-4300

Friday
Banjos + A Clockwork Orange = This
MILKY

Banjos + A Clockwork Orange = This

You could use a little crazy in your life. By which we mean live banjo performances, theatrical readings and burlesque—all happening at Church this weekend. They’re even dressing the place up like the Korova Milk Bar from A Clockwork Orange. Because, why not.

Nov 18-19, $12 cover ($10 in advance), cash bar, 9pm-2am, Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, 617-236-7600, tickets here

Sunday
Crowning the City’s New Sausage King
MEATY

Crowning the City’s New Sausage King

You’ve been slipping on your sausage intake lately. Enter Dante’s Sausagefest this Sunday, where top chefs from Coppa, OM and Catalyst will be serving you their takes on the meat (think: venison, wild boar) as you crown one of them king. But really, everyone wins here. It’s sausage.

A New Breed of Thanksgiving
MANY THANKS

A New Breed of Thanksgiving

Consider this a Thanksgiving rehearsal. The Urban Grape and Trina’s Starlite Lounge are teaming up on Sunday to throw a booze-paired, four-course Thanksgiving complete with ham, duck liver and Miller High Life, all for 15 bucks. Warning: you may be totally over Thanksgiving when everyone else celebrates it.

Tuesday
Brushing Up on Yves Saint Laurent
YSL TRAINING

Brushing Up on Yves Saint Laurent

You have his shirts. His cufflinks. Even his cologne. Now, you’ll watch a documentary about the life of legendary French designer Yves Saint Laurent, packed with tuxedo stories, inseam anecdotes and, thankfully, subtitles. It should prepare you for next month’s short film on the founder of Members Only.
