Nice weekends finish last.

Entry to an Exclusive Jay-Z Concert

No surprise, Jay-Z at Carnegie Hall is a tough ticket. Thankfully, Beyoncé was willing to fork over a few of her VIP floor seats to UD Perks. And now, we’re passing them—plus access to the invitation-only 40/40 Club after-party—over to you. Don’t forget the christening gift.

Feb 6-7, available exclusively on UD Perks

A Winter Sale from C’H’C’M’
COLD PLAY

A Winter Sale from C’H’C’M’

The key to surviving a New York winter: vacations. Also, cashmere cable-knit sweaters. Here to help you stockpile the latter: C’H’C’M’. They’re currently holding a sale on some of their warmest items. Think: Ovadia & Sons shawl-collar cardigans and Gloverall duffle coats. Do not think: Snuggies.

Friday
Momofuku’s Experimental Cocktail Lab
TEST CHAMBER

Momofuku’s Experimental Cocktail Lab

If you see the old Bar Bar smoking tomorrow night, relax, it’s supposed to be doing that. See, there’s a new chemically enhanced cocktail lounge in there now, and they like to mix their libations using liquid nitrogen, centrifuges and iron swizzle sticks heated to 1,500 degrees. BYO welder’s mask.

Opens Jan 20, Booker & Dax, 207 2nd Ave, 212-254-3500

The Birth of a Beer Growler Station
TAP DANCE

The Birth of a Beer Growler Station

The Super Bowl is coming. Yet, your fridge, still completely devoid of 64-ounce beer jugs. No problem. Introducing the Growler Station, a 24-tap outpost on 8th Street with a rotating selection of craft beers (at least one was aged in a bourbon barrel) and high-tech foamless fillers. Also known as the PerfectPour3000.

Sunday
Brunch Tacos in a Chinatown Basement
CELLARS MARKET

Brunch Tacos in a Chinatown Basement

This Sunday we’re sending you into the cellar of a derelict Vietnamese restaurant. Don’t worry, there’s a perfectly good reason. It’s Mexican French Toast. See, Pulqueria, that Chinatown basement of tacos (and tequila flights), is launching brunch. And they’re serving till midnight. Guava Mimosas always felt like a nightcap anyway.
