Things to do for January 12, 2012
Heavy Metal, Cured Meats and Tiny Sips of Wine
The weekend is building up a head of steam.
Wine Tasting in the West Village
Lower Manhattan and Napa. You’re never going to confuse the two. But here to help split the difference: Uncorked, a Napa-style, 240-bottle wine bar where a healthy portion of the stock will be available by gratis half-ounce tasting pours. You love a good try-before-you-buy policy.
One Heck of a Handsome Carryall
You weren’t necessarily planning on leaving the country this weekend, but after seeing the distinguished (and virtually indestructible) leather travel bags at Ghurka’s new Sherry-Netherland flagship, you may want to reconsider. Suitcases. Duffels. Hands-free carryalls. Some new. Some heirloom. All smelling like a baseball mitt.
Welcome Inside Jack’s Wife Freda
Meet Jack’s Wife Freda. She’s, um... well, she’s a café. The product of a married couple who met while working for Keith McNally. The style: homey. The menu: comforting. Egg and toast sliders. Green shakshuka. Matzo ball soup. It’s the kind of place that comes in handy on a cold Saturday morning-after.
Heavy Metal Mondays at Terroir
First, Van Halen gets back together. Then, Terroir turns the week’s leadoff workday into Heavy Metal Monday. Basically, that just means drinking while listening to the Crüe. But you should also count on there being flagons of mead, skull cups of wine and a dress code that requires black. Big hair optional.
Il Buco Unveils Its Salumi
After months (including at least three sleepless nights) of testing in a secret, meat-curing laboratory, Il Buco is finally ready to debut their new, proprietary salumi program. All of your favorites are here: capocollo, pancetta, lardo. It’s like the all-star game of charcuterie plates. Or a great excuse for some Italian beer.
