Nat Sherman’s private smoking lounge opens its doors for an exclusive evening of first-class cigars, scotch and Cuban appetizers. (A good stogie always gets you hungry.) On that note: there’s also brunch with unlimited cocktails at Betel in the West Village, and Pat LaFrieda short ribs from his Meat Men show.
Things to do for May 04, 2012
Cinco de Mayo, Knighthood and a Sausage Window
Please hold for the weekend.
75% Off Paul Smith Creations
Sir Paul Smith. If the British military ever gets into a fashion war, the queen will call him to the front lines to lead an assault of windowpane blazers, slim knitwear and three-piece suits. It’d be a lot like this sale. Only funnier to watch.
Cinco de Mayo at Pulqueria
Donkeys. Piñatas. Mariachi bands. Yes, your weekends are generally pretty eventful. And this one will be no different, when you check out the Cinco de Mayo festivities going down this weekend at Pulqueria. It’s a solid bet that the festivities will also involve agave-based celebration.
A Window That Dispenses Sausage
The walk-up sausage window. Good God, how wasn’t this a thing before. Anyway, the Scandinavian füd masterminds at Vandaag have made it a reality. Hunter’s sausages with caramelized onions and oxtail croquettes both make an appearance. You’re a pancake door away from total bliss.
Courtney Love paints. And draws. In fact, those are the things she’s most known for. Right after awesomely disastrous public appearances, pissing off living Nirvana members and being generally estranged. But about the art—it’s on display right now. Buy the ticket, take the ride.
Café Select’s New Backroom Raw Bar
At this point, there’s nothing Café Select can’t do. They’ve given you fondue. They’ve introduced you to the fine art of Swiss veal. And now, they’re tossing an oyster bar into the equation. It’s got lobster in its most natural form: salad.
