We’re hooking you up with the hottest ticket in town: Jay-Z at Carnegie Hall. (Including the VIP after-party at the 40/40 Club.) We’ve also planned your (anti-)Valentine’s Day: a screening of Fatal Attraction with dinner and cocktails. And we’re sending lobster rolls to your office. Hey, you’ve earned it.
Things to do for January 26, 2012
Grilled Cheese Nachos, Napoleon’s Chair and Spiked Pastries
A little weekend never hurt anybody.
Gourmet Grilled Cheese Delivery
You know how to make a mean grilled cheese. Unfortunately, you don’t keep much chèvre around the home/office. So next time the craving hits for a super-fancy melt, you’ll call Little Muenster. They deliver now. They also make grilled cheese nachos now. Just in time for the Super Bowl. And the Pro Bowl.
Our suggested date spot for this weekend: the old New York Mercantile Exchange building. Home run, we know. But before you judge, it’s worth noting that the space has been turned into a hidden gallery of bizarre art and long-lost antiques. Including Napoleon’s favorite chair. No, it didn’t come from Le Sharper Image.
A Bakery with a Liquor License
Apologies to milk, but there’s a better way to wash down cookies. Booze. See, Jane’s Sweet Buns, the East Village bakery with the spiked pastries, now has a liquor license. And a happy hour. So when you order The Old Fashion bun, it’ll come with a double chocolate stout. Yup, that’ll do a body good, too.
The Smile. To Go.
The Smile is now doing takeout. Yes, we know what you’re thinking—they’re going to need a bigger window. Or, you know, a second location dedicated strictly to carryout. Hence the new Howard Street spot. It’s where you’ll turn when you want cheddar apple biscuits for brunch. On your couch.
We’re going to keep this really simple. Sunday. 7pm. Chelsea Market. There’s an honest-to-goodness chili cook-off going down. The competitors: some of the best restaurants in the city (Gramercy Tavern, Roberta’s). The refreshments: unlimited cold ones. Either you’re in, or you’re deathly allergic to cornbread.
