A few essentials now that the leaves are turning: a seriously handsome, fully canvassed tweed jacket, hand-sewn by Brooklyn’s Rifle Quality, for 35% off. A stock of excellent (and rare) wines from around the world. And some sharp wool ties and pocket squares from Pierrepont Hicks—all 40% off.
Things to do for October 11, 2012
Slurping Ramen, Riding Yachts and Yelling “Domino”
Walk softly and carry a big weekend.
La Gloutonnerie Launches Lunch
La Gloutonnerie. You haven’t tried their lunch yet. Of course, there’s a good reason. It just started existing. Consider swinging by tomorrow for some duck confit, New York strip and dill-scented shrimp with fennel crisps. You can always do a salad Monday.
Not all yacht shows are created equal. Some throw in live jazz. Cocktail bars. Oh, and a couple McLarens and M55s for good measure. That’s basically what you’re getting at the Epic Hotel this weekend. Good luck figuring out how to get a catamaran up your condo stairs later.
Here’s a good reason to head out to the Grove: beer. Check that: 200 types of beer. Yes, there’s a massive beer party going down this Saturday at Peacock Park. You’ll find local bands doing the live-music thing, cooking exhibitions, brewing seminars and, of course, sample pours. Many, many sample pours.
Throwing Down Some Bones at Jimmy’z
Drop by Jimmy’z this Sunday and you’ll find, well, mofongo. But also, a heated, bracket-style domino tournament. To the winners: cash, new domino tables and cases of beer. Beer > participation ribbon.
Midtown Gets All Ramen on You
Ah, fall. Sunny, comfortable, 85-degree fall. You’re probably freezing. Well, this might help. We’ve got a new ramen joint. The name: Machiya. The specialty: warm bowls of noodles topped with things like pork belly and short rib. Slurp. It’s polite.
