Sure, we’re hooking you up with a bouquet of artisanal cheesecakes (more delicious than flowers) and an anti-Valentine’s Day screening of Fatal Attraction. But more important than that: 35% off all the Jimmyjane toys you’ll need to celebrate the holiday right. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing...
Things to do for February 02, 2012
Football at Eataly, Lox Pizza and Gingham
Into the great wide weekend.
90% Off at Scoop
Yesterday, a preview of spring in New York. Today, a preview of spring-cleaning at Scoop. Over the next month, they’ll be organizing their considerably large closets and selling off the excess stock for a song (expect Etro jackets, Gant gingham, Shipley & Halmos knits). And honestly, when are you not in the market for knits.
The Expansion of Empellón
Empellón is opening a new location. Coming over from the old space: everything but the tacos and chips. Yup, for his sequel, chef Alex Stupak is focusing more on fancier regional cuisine and going back to his roots as a former wd~50 pastry chef. We can only assume this means churro foam.
Curing a Hangover with Pizza
Feel free to go absolutely bonkers Friday night. Because when you wake on Saturday, L’asso will be waiting with open arms. And mimosas. And a new hair of the dog smoked-salmon pizza that’s sort of like a bagel and lox. Minus the schmear.
Brunching at Hudson Clearwater
Kicking off the most important eating day of the year (and New York football game in four): Hudson Clearwater’s inaugural brunch service. The hidden gem (you enter through a secret garden) will be blending fruit smoothies, frying french toast and grilling up hanger steaks. The Buffalo wings can wait.
Eataly Hosts the Super Bowl
Good news: we’ve found you an alternative to seats on the 50 for Sunday. Birreria, Eataly’s rooftop beer garden, is showing the grand American football contest on eight flat-screens. Also, they’ll be opening up the bar and kitchen for unlimited food and Moretti during the game. Nobody does Super Bowl like the Italians.
