Things to do for January 15, 2009

The Weekender

Free Ceviche, Midtown Tapas and Sex Toy Delivery

The weekend has no time for wind chill.

Thursday
Sapphire Opens
CHAMPAGNE ROOM

Sapphire Opens

As one titan of undress moves on, another takes its place. This new gentleman's club is moving quickly and quietly into the old Scores space with the force of an 8,000-dancer empire behind it. There's also an adjoining steakhouse in the works and a full-service butler on hand, on the off chance you want something you can't find inside.

Opens tonight at 333 E. 60th St (between 1st and 2nd Ave), 212-421-3600

Friday
Rothman's Warehouse Sale
SALE-ING

Rothman's Warehouse Sale

The old-school suit men kick off their annual two-week warehouse sale with overcoats and pants up to 40 percent off and Zegna suits as low as $700. Think of it as a little timely sartorial deflation.

Through Feb 1, 200 Park Ave South (at 17th St), 212-777-7400

Saturday
Free Ceviche at Desnuda
FREEROLLING

Free Ceviche at Desnuda

Show up for a nightcap at this East Village cevicheria and you're welcome to all the tea-smoked oysters and mackerel you can handle, provided you drop at least $30 on drinks. (We're guessing oyster shooters don't count.)

Saturdays after midnight, 122 E. 7th St (between 1st Ave and Ave A), 212-254-3515

Sunday
Bar Breton's Edible Brunch Cocktails
(LIQUID) BRUNCH

Bar Breton's Edible Brunch Cocktails

These Francophiles are taking their brunch cocktails seriously. Their Bloody Mary involves a few sardines and the soon-to-be-infamous Red Eye throws eggs and bacon into the mix—definitely the best way to drink your breakfast.

Weekends at 254 5th Ave (at 28th St), 212-213-4999

Del Posto's Recession Special
FIXE

Del Posto's Recession Special

The classic Florentine spot's famed 40-dish Collezione menu is dropping from $250 to $175, which will get you Crab Gratinato, Osso Buco-Style Short Ribs and 38 other rustic Italian plates. (That's a scant $4.38 per course, if you're the rationalizing type.)

Available now at 85 10th Ave (at 16th St), 212-672-0390

Monday
La Fonda del Sol Opens
BITES

La Fonda del Sol Opens

This unassuming tapas bar and resto is landing in Midtown with Josh DeChellis (formerly of BarFry) in the kitchen, a more subdued upstairs space and Paul Smith cloth upholstering the booths...so with the right suit, you can blend right in.

Opens Monday in the MetLife Building, 200 Park Ave (between 43rd and Vanderbilt), 212-867-6767, see more of La Fonda here

Tuesday
Babeland's Sex Toy Delivery
TOYS

Babeland's Sex Toy Delivery

Being a cold weather shut-in just got a lot more exciting, now that New York's finest source for French ticklers is offering to brave the snow and bring their precious wares straight to your apartment door. Their delivery fee is thirty dollars, but a well-timed sex harness is priceless.

Call the Babeland closest to you: Soho (212-966-2120), LES (212-375-1701) and Brooklyn (718-638-3820)
