The Weekender

Lingerie, Free Candy and Drinking Lunch

The weekend shoots... scores.

UD - Just a Bunch of Well-Designed Stuff

Just a Bunch of Well-Designed Stuff

There are things your lifestyle requires. Corkscrews, towels, retro View-Masters and wooden robots that fold into cubes. We’re talking needs. And this LES gallery has them. They’re also giving you Wylie Dufresne’s wd~50 cotton candy gratis when you visit. Just what you’d expect from any finer cubed-robot purveyors.

Now open, JnrlStr, 55 Clinton St (between Rivington and Stanton), 212-729-1655

UD - Getting Serious About Sake in Tribeca

Getting Serious About Sake in Tribeca

The day is done. It’s cold (theoretically). So you duck into this cozy, dimly lit second-floor izakaya above B Flat, dust yourself off and say, “We’d like a bottle of sake and some marinated Berkshire pork, and keep it coming.” Look at you, doing just what we imagine.

Now open, Shigure, 277 Church St (between Franklin and White), 212-965-0200

UD - Up to 70% Off Theory

Up to 70% Off Theory

January: prime shirt-and-jacket-wearing season. Conveniently, you can score a nice collection of handsome button-downs and the occasional charcoal sport coat for not a lot of ducats at Theory’s Chelsea sample sale. Which’ll be great when you’re in that buttoning-things mood of yours.

Jan 14, 11am-8pm; Jan 15-17, 11am-7pm; Theory Sample Sale, 261 W 36th St (between 7th and 8th), 2nd Fl, 212-947-8748

UD - Afternoon Delight at Hudson Clearwater

Afternoon Delight at Hudson Clearwater

After extensive tests in the field, Hudson Clearwater has determined that grilled portobello panini and applejack cocktails are the best boost for afternoon work productivity. So, being the friend of the workingman that they are, they’ve put both of those on their newly launched lunch menu. Capitalism survives.

UD - 70% Off at Journelle

70% Off at Journelle

There’s a day coming up. A day when red things and candy are in fashion. A day dedicated to the patron saint of wearing less clothing. And speaking of that, here’s a lingerie sale. A sea of negligees, teddies and celebratory sheerness. Vaya con Dios.

Jan 15-18, 9am-7pm; Jan 19, 10am-4pm; Journelle Sample Sale, 260 5th Ave (between 28th and 29th), 212-725-5400
