Things to do for February 07, 2013
Chinese New Year, Rooftop Pools and Lobster Pot Pie
The weekend <em>always</em> delivers on Saturdays.
The Lobster Pot Pie at Pearl Oyster Bar
Thirty inches of snow might happen. That’s lobster pot pie weather right there. And hey, here’s one of those. It’s a classic from the Pearl menu. They haven’t made it for years, but they’re doing it now through next week. So... check that one off your rare-pot-pies list.
80% Off at Seize sur Vingt
Don’t try to tell us you couldn’t use a new Italian wool suit. And don’t give us any of that stuff about not wanting a cashmere overcoat. Because here those things are, stunning, and for a hell of a lot less than normal. So just save your objections.
Hey, It’s a New Spanish Tapas Brunch
Big news on the brunch front: Barraca’s doing it now. They’ve got Spanish deviled-egg flights, Spanish chocolate flatbreads and Spanish meatballs from a grandmother’s old recipe. Believe it or not, it’s a Spanish place. Which means you’re free to take a three-hour nap between plates.
It’s Chinese New Year. Let’s Dance.
Somewhere in all those timeless pearls of wisdom, Confucius said something about how there should be a pop-up dance party/art installation at a Chinatown dim sum place to celebrate the Chinese New Year. And so the party gods of Dark Disco are throwing one. It’s just basic tradition-respecting.
Tuesdays at the Gansevoort Rooftop Pool
You’re pretty familiar with the rooftop pool at the Gansevoort Park Avenue. You’re familiar with its 90-degree, indoor/outdoor perfection. And the other types of perfection that tend to congregate around it. And now, it’s open for dips on Tuesday nights. Henceforth known as rooftop pool night.
