Things to do for March 08, 2012
Atlantic City, Movie Night and Cinnamon Toast Pizza
The weekend is innocent until proven guilty.
Atlantic City’s New Boardwalk Empire
Revel—Atlantic City’s new multibillion-dollar, 47-story crown jewel—is taking reservations now for April 2. The public premiere isn’t until the end of May, but this’ll give you a chance to preview the spa, one of the Iron Chef–helmed restaurants and their rooftop pine tree forest. Also, the craps tables.
A Gourmet Grocer in Chelsea
In the event that you run out of milk this weekend (or rotisserie porchetta, dragon fruit and cold-pressed juice), you’ll want to know about Foragers City Grocer. Yes. It’s one of those gourmet greenmarkets. You know the kind. In-house dry-aging charcuterie program. Locally sourced seafood. Cereals you’ve never heard of.
A Proper Sale from Proper Cloth
About that tremendous weather today. Think of it as a very important, well-timed reminder. A: You still have personal days left. B: You ought to be cherry-picking some fresh oxfords from Proper Cloth’s custom button-down sample sale. Choose your plaids wisely.
Brunch at Brooklyn Bowl
You: uncanny at picking up a 7-10 split. Blue Ribbon: uncanny at throwing together a brunch. Here to put the two together: Brooklyn Bowl. Yes, the 10-pin capital of Williamsburg is now serving the weekend’s most important meal. Cinnamon Toast Pizza, BBQ brisket frittata, funny-looking shoes, all accounted for.
Movie Night at Sons of Essex
Starting this Sunday, Sons of Essex has a new special on the menu... we mean, wall. Big-screen double features. Up first: a twin billing of Run Lola Run and Kids. Also, there’ll be complimentary truffle popcorn with infused truffle butter and truffle salt. Alas, truffle Twizzlers remain a pipe dream.
