Things to do for October 02, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend gives credit where credit is due.
These masters of the Winehouse bouffant are setting up shop in New York with a black-lacquered hair salon serving booze and whipping up hairstyles you've only seen in movies. It's out there, but crazy times call for crazy hair.
Shake Shack's three-week celebration kicks off with pumpkin custard, German-chocolate custard and, naturally, all the bratwurst you can dream up. Mercifully, they've left out the accordion music this time around.
It wouldn't be a full weekender without another pig roast. This time around, New Zealand's own Nelson Blue is celebrating Kiwi culture with free beer, corn on the cob, potato salad and 150 pounds of sweet-smelling pork for just $15. It might be your last chance at an outdoor cookout...until next week, anyway.
Secession Preview Night
David Bouley's new Mediterranean bistro—in the space formerly known as Danube —is kicking off with a $25 all-you-can-eat bash of champagne, oysters and parfaits. They're keeping things reined in with a strict two-and-a-half-hour window, but if you apply yourself, that should be plenty of time.
The infamous cupcake magnates are extending their grasp to the city's business center. Sadly, the days of the 5,000 cupcake bonus may already be over.
The British leather artisans unveil their economic stimulus package, with at least 75 percent off suits, overcoats, cashmere sweaters and various leather goods.
