You've always had a thing for Bombay starlets, open bars and complimentary treats (in that order). Find all three at this curry-inflected soiree. DJ Hottpants will be spinning Indian soundtracks while guests get henna tattoos and bindis. Nothing says badass like a Ganesha elephant design.
Things to do for November 13, 2008
Bollywood, Tokyo and Truffles
The weekend has discovered Victoria's secret.
New Menu at Wish
The candle-lit, white umbrella-ed courtyard at Wish is possibly the most romantic date spot in town. Now you have an excuse to revisit it as new chef Marco Ferraro (a Jean Georges vet) unveils his menu featuring lobster ravioli wontons and cardamom-yuzu foam. Second one satisfies your daily requirement of foam.
The Miami Short Film Festival opens this week with dozens of films no longer than a half-hour, and they're kicking off the short-attention-span fun with a red carpet gala and after-party. This is great because it combines two of your favorite things: concise storytelling and un-concise after-partying.
SushiSamba Launches Cosplay
Not quite ready to retire that Dark Knight joker costume? Re-release it for a chance to win $1,000 at SushiSamaba's crowd-pleasing Cosplay Party, inspired by Japanese costume parties. Sure, most people end up dressing like characters from manga, anime and video games—and who are you to quibble with the Tokyo schoolgirl look?
New Happy Hour at Bourbon Steak
It's been a while since you patronized chef Michael Mina's pampered-beef temple and his gluttonous trio of duck fat fries. Make it right by heading to the restaurant's launch of a Wednesday happy hour where you'll find half-priced cocktails, reduced-price apps and complimentary truffle-butter popcorn. And afterwards a Kobe slider. For old time's sake.
