Let’s review the week thus far.

Shotgun deer-hunting season: began yesterday. Thanksgiving leftovers (sans pie): going strong.

And starting in a few hours, you’ve got a sexy new after-work cocktailing and small-plates den opening in the Financial District. And it’s only Tuesday...

Behold Julep, your new reason to go to the old Revolution Rock Bar space and Moscow Mule it up after work, soft-opening this afternoon downtown.

This is the kind of post-office haven Roger Sterling would take a mistress to for a few mint juleps served in vintage barware to discuss “career opportunities.” Think: retro-ish design, atmospheric lighting, a sleek bar and throne-ish green leather couches with high backs (prevents anti-regal slouching).

Your best move: show up with a cadre of coworkers and get the night off to a Crispy Pork Dumplings and Buffalo Duck Drumettes start at the bar. With maybe some help from the Giant Julep Plate, loaded with truffle honey and salted cured meats (aka the de-Tuesday-er).

As things get interesting with the group of paralegals next to you, you’ll relocate to the aforementioned couches in the lounge with a round of Champagne Bowlers (brandy, white wine, strawberries) and whatever you’ve requested the evening DJ play.

Note: this may not be time for Gwar.

Eric Twardzik is often misidentified as a Dane. Embroidered pants and green Chartreuse are the two things that get him out of bed every morning.
