Things to do for December 15, 2011

The Weekender

Bazaars, Bathhouses and Bloody Mary Salads

Objects in the weekend are closer than they appear.

Thursday
An After-Dark Brooklyn Bazaar
NIGHT MOVES

An After-Dark Brooklyn Bazaar

The nighttime is the right time. Especially if you’re in Williamsburg this evening between the after-hours of 5pm and 1am. That’s when the Brooklyn Night Bazaar will be transforming a gargantuan warehouse into a neon-lit marketplace full of food vendors, live music and various miscellanea like hand-painted baseball cards. You can never have enough miscellanea.

Meet Your New Favorite Shirt
MATERIAL WORLD

Meet Your New Favorite Shirt

Bespoken’s getting into the custom shirt game. And to celebrate, they’ve popped up a shirt bar inside menswear mainstay Odin. Belly up to the counter, place an order, and a 16-person team of tailors will build you a button-down. For proof, they’ll each autograph the shirt’s hang tag. Or upon request, a body part.

Through Dec 27; Mon-Sat, 11-8pm; Sun, noon-7pm; Odin New York, 199 Lafayette St, 212-966-0026

Saturday
The Brunch Bloody Mary. Now a Salad.
PRODIGAL SON

The Brunch Bloody Mary. Now a Salad.

Since the dawn of time (or the invention of midday cocktailing), it was assumed that if you wanted a Bloody Mary, you had to drink it. Then Sons of Essex launched their weekend brunch. And suddenly you could eat it with a fork. At this rate, straws will be extinct by 2014.

Sat-Sun starting Dec 17, 11am-3pm, Sons of Essex, 133 Essex St, 212-674-7100

A Russian Bathhouse Dance Party
STEAM ROOM

A Russian Bathhouse Dance Party

There’re very few reasons one would break into a Russian bathhouse after closing. A half-naked dance party: certainly one of them. So this Saturday, you’ll throw on your favorite dancing robe and prepare for a late night of steaming, jacuzzi-ing and rhythmic Marco Polo. You’ll want to stretch.

Like a Bar from the ’70s. The 1870s.
WAY BACK WHEN

Like a Bar from the ’70s. The 1870s.

Some things need to be broken in before they can be truly appreciated. La-Z-Boys. Baseball mitts. Neighborhood bars. Then there’s the Wayland. A just-opened watering hole that feels like it’s been around since the Grant administration. Homemade bitters. Live piano music. Paint-chipped walls. That new old-bar smell...

Soft-open this weekend, The Wayland, 700 E 9th St, 212-777-7022
