Gratis Tequila, a Mountain of Barbecue and a Vintage Blowout
The weekend is going deep.
The Swiss spot's secret gritty boiler room gets its own bar under the stairs, a new entrance and a new non-private clientele, meaning you can now enter through the delivery hatch out front—instead of the usual route through the kitchen.
Thom Browne's collaboration with the famous menswear marque gets its first standalone shop in the West Village, with all the breakless pants and high-lapeled blazers you've ever wanted. In fact, probably quite a few more.
When New York closes a door, it opens a drink special. Finance and media refugees can take solace at the hipster-y faux-dive, and sip some free tequila every Monday at midnight with proof of unemployment. (Your Netflix bill should qualify.)
The best barbecue spots don't have to sacrifice quantity for quality. Starting Monday, $25 at Hill Country will get you all the beef, chicken and pork ribs you can get through in one sitting, with an extra $2 for bottomless sides—in case you need a breather between briskets.
The appointment-only archive is opening to the public for the first time in ten years, with up to 90 percent off original prices, including boots, coats and leathers as low as $30. If you're lucky, you might even pick something up from the last financial crisis.
Billy Reid is inviting UD Members to a private shopping event with 75 percent off all fall and winter gear, 25 percent off leather goods and 25 percent off the never-discounted Heirloom collection. In short, everything you need to dress the part of a Southern gentleman, as well as food from Mercat and bourbon from Woodford Reserve, in case you need a bit of Southern comfort.
