It doesn’t get any bigger than this: a New Wave membership to the Film Society of Lincoln Center, available exclusively on Perks. Consider this your all-access pass to the year’s best film screenings. Plus: on March 9, legendary ad man George Lois would like to have lunch with you. Say yes...
Things to do for February 23, 2012
Warhol, Grilled Cheese and Fatty ’Cue
The weekend is a heavy favorite for best achievement in sound editing.
Vino and Escargots in the West Village
You need no excuse to spend an evening with an attractive companion over an Argentine malbec and a plate of escargots gratinés. But you’ll take one where you can get it. This one comes in the form of a cozy, theater-seat-bedecked enoteca in the West Village. They always do.
An Oasis of Grilled Cheese on the UWS
Today, you’ll celebrate the union of bread, butter and cheese. Which is probably not much different from yesterday, except now you’ll do it in this Upper West Side temple to the art of grilled fromagery. Grab a gruyère with candied bacon and a mojito, then just look around for someone to thank.
James Dean, Warhol and Basquiat
This exhibition celebrates Andy Warhol’s life and aims to explore questions about what “cool” is. The answer you’ll get here: Roy Lichtenstein collages, Johnny Cash’s jackets, classic guitars and various works by Basquiat, Keith Haring and Warhol himself (including Mr. Dean, pictured). You would’ve also accepted “of or at a fairly low temperature.”
80% Off Winter Gear at Freemans
Winter clothes: the fact that you’re hoping to escape without needing them doesn’t mean you can’t still want them. Particularly when they’re as well favored as the chunky seafaring sweaters, selvage jeans and shackets procurable here. You love it when they keep a separate category for shackets.
Brunching at Fatty ’Cue
You know and love the West Village Fatty ’Cue. Same goes for brunch. So bringing the two together was as inevitable as you ordering the burnt ends brisket hash and summoning the tableside Bloody Mary cart. The favorite of your many summonings.
