The Weekender

Competitive Bearding, Whiskey and a Food Trunk Show

You can’t teach an old weekend new tricks.

Thursday
A Trunk Show. Some Wine. Carolers.
SLAM TRUNK

A Trunk Show. Some Wine. Carolers.

There’s a new vintage shop opening tonight in Midtown. So they’re throwing a little soiree with carolers, gratis food from Empire State South and equally gratis wine from Perrine’s. Oh, and Drew Lewis is launching its new men’s line down the street at the same time. It’s a Midtown trunk show thing. With carolers.

Because Shopping Is Better with Whiskey

You should consider doing some holiday shopping at the Westside Provisions District tonight. They have pop-ups (Kolo Collection, Astolfi Art...). Or better yet, just say you’re doing that and show up for the party with Smokey’s Farmland Band and whiskey as far as the eye can see. Helps with the shopping.

Friday
The Food Version of a Trunk Show
FOOD AWAKENING

The Food Version of a Trunk Show

Speaking of trunk shows, there’s another one happening in the EAV. Except it’s food instead of clothes. Urban Cannibals is hosting a Local Food Holiday Trunk Show with guest comestible-slingers like Phickles Pickles and Sugar Coated Radical. They’ll also be putting gift baskets together. You know, since you haven’t yet.

Saturday
Buying Art in Strangers’ Apartments
LOFTY INTENTIONS

Buying Art in Strangers’ Apartments

There’s this art show. It takes place in random people’s apartments. As in 40 local artists setting up shop in 40 real people’s lofts to display and sell you their wares. We hear unit W10 makes a mean eggs Benedict. Note: we didn’t hear this.

It’s Time for Your Mustache to Shine
BEARD SCIENCE

It’s Time for Your Mustache to Shine

Stop. Drop the razor. Yes, Movember’s done, but you’ll at least want to hang on to that face mane until this Saturday’s Battle of the Beards. There’s live music, food trucks, stand-up comedy. There’s also chef Kevin Gillespie judging you on various categories of burliness. You can shave when you’re dead.
