The Weekender

Peking Duck, Pork Neck and the Pop Up Flea

It’s beginning to look a lot like the weekend.

Thursday
A Tiki Bar Full of Dumplings
DIM WIT

A Tiki Bar Full of Dumplings

The Hurricane Club, your favorite Polynesian destination besides actual Polynesia, has started wheeling around a dim sum cart during lunch. On it: things like dumplings, honey-glazed ribs and Peking duck tea sandwiches. Which is sort of a misnomer, since they’re actually meant to be eaten with rum-filled coconuts, not tea.

Late-Night Pastrami Sandwich Preview
RYE AM LEGEND

Late-Night Pastrami Sandwich Preview

The lunch service at Kutsher’s is still weeks away. But not for you. Stop by the bar anytime after 9:30pm and ask for the “sneak preview.” Also known as a house-cured pastrami sandwich on Orwasher’s rye with pickles, mustard and Russian dressing. Lunch: it’s what’s for late-night dinner.

Friday
A Big Giant Room of Handsome
FLEA-ING THE SCENE

A Big Giant Room of Handsome

Pop Up Flea 4: Let Flea-Dom Ring is finally upon us. This year, the annual all-star gathering of new and vintage men’s goods features special guest appearances by bootmakers Red Wing, shirtmakers Gitman Bros. and all-around designer Todd Snyder. Also, about 30 other brands. And gratis whiskey. In case you’re into that sort of thing.

Dec 2, 3-9pm; Dec 3, 11am-7pm; Dec 4, 11am-6pm; Pop Up Flea, 159 Bleecker St

Getting Sauced on Chocolate Martinis
CHOCOLATE BAR

Getting Sauced on Chocolate Martinis

Sometimes you just want the strongest drink possible. Other times, you’ll happily settle for one that tastes like a Twix. This cocoa/wine bar would be for those other times. Each cocktail on the chocolate martini menu (yes, there’s an entire menu) comes with a complimentary Jacques Torres truffle. The olive’s sitting this one out.

Sunday
The Correct Way to Do Sunday Dinner
GRAVY BOAT

The Correct Way to Do Sunday Dinner

Fall Sundays. A time for watching football... and not a whole lot else. The lone exception: a proper evening meal like the three-course/red-sauced prix fixe taking place at Tiny’s. They’ve got the prerequisite Sunday night spaghetti and meatballs. Only their version also comes with braised Mangalitsa pork neck. A tweak you can fully get behind.

Sunday nights, Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs, 135 W Broadway, 212-374-1135
