You would like a drink this weekend. (Just a hunch.) Your best options: 1) Endless beer and wine with Michelin-approved comfort food at majestic Flatiron bistro Prandial. 2) Brunch with bottomless mimosas and Bloodys at West Village hot spot Brooklyneer. 3) Four date-worthy cocktails in the velvet-cloaked Parlour at the Roger. Cheers.
Things to do for January 18, 2013
Beer, Clooney and the New Milk & Honey
Stop, drop and weekend.
Half Off Some Spectacular Furniture
Sitting. It’s the best. Especially on butter-soft leather framed with salvaged airplane steel. Which, hey, that’s what Timothy Oulton makes—ridiculously handsome furniture. And you can get it right now for a song. Well, that and some actual money.
Eight Different Macaronis at Barclays
You’re at Barclays. Joe Johnson is single-handedly costing them the game. You’re restless. Only poutine mac and cheese can make this better. So you head to Elbow Room, which has that and seven other macs. Yeah, we didn’t know there were that many either.
A Beer and Whiskey Fest at Webster Hall
Four floors of whiskey and beer tastings: usually entertainment enough. But at Webster Hall tomorrow, they’re augmenting those tastings with burlesque shows, jazz concerts and a mini circus. Just to make sure.
You know what goes great with a leisurely afternoon of custom Belgian waffles and beef tartare... children’s movies. It’s true. Just ask the folks at Tribeca Grand, who are bringing the brunch buffet back this Sunday with a screening of Fantastic Mr. Fox. Something about Wes Anderson and brunch just feels right.
The Glorious Reopening of Milk & Honey
Milk & Honey. Perhaps the speakeasy legend in this city. Well, they moved. You’ve heard. It’s a big deal. Here’s the situation: it’s much larger than before. Which is probably why you can now pull off the previously unheard-of walk-in. Oh, and the menu: it doesn’t exist. Everything’s custom. See you there.
