The Milk & Honey Reservations Number

For weeks, you've been wandering between watering holes, trying to fill the void of Milk & Honey's temporary shuttering. Well, your long cocktail nightmare is over. M&H is back and we've got something else you'll need: the reservations number, 718-308-6881. Don't say we never did anything for you.

134 Eldridge St (between Broome and Delancey), 718-308-6881

Friday
Last-Minute Lingerie from La Perla
Lingering

Last-Minute Lingerie from La Perla

We aren't huge fans of Saturday's mandatory lovefest, but La Perla is bailing us out with scotch, 30 percent off all sexywear and a few models to show off the goods in person…which could cause more trouble than forgetting a gift.

5-8pm, Feb 13, at Saks, 611 5th Ave (between 49th and 50th), 10th floor, 212-753-4000

Favela Cubana Opens
Caribbean

Favela Cubana Opens

The new Greenwich Village spot brings together Cuban and Brazilian fare for delicacies like ropas viejas and churrascaria-style hanger steak sharing the same platter. But for diplomacy's sake, we suggest you try them one at a time.

Opens tomorrow, 543 La Guardia Pl (between Bleecker and W. 3rd St), 212-777-6500

Saturday
Tom Colicchio Opens Halfsteak
Halves

Tom Colicchio Opens Halfsteak

From the goodness of his beef-loving heart, Tom Colicchio is transforming the front room of Craftsteak into "Halfsteak," serving the same gorgeous steak at half the price. As sweeteners, they've got Fried Oysters and a $15 ceiling for the menu.

Now at Craftsteak, 85 10th Ave (at 15th St), 212-400-6699

A Personalized Valentine's Song
Songsmith

A Personalized Valentine's Song

If you don't do chocolates, pro-songwriter Jordon Rothstein will ghostwrite you a custom tune to sing to your current squeeze. The cost? Significantly more than a song. But how can you put a price on love.

Sunday
Made-to-Measure Shoes at MAB
Cobbling

Made-to-Measure Shoes at MAB

Cobbling is in, which means your uniquely shaped feet are about to get more comfortable. Our friends at Michael Andrews Bespoke will make you your very own custom-fitted brogues for about the price of a plane ticket to Savile Row.

$600-$800, 20 Clinton St (between Stanton and E. Houston), 212-677-1755

Monday
Co. Pizzeria Opens for Lunch
Lunching

Co. Pizzeria Opens for Lunch

The newly famous pizza spot adds lunch to their repertoire, including their béchamel-enhanced flambé pizza. Unfortunately, delivery is still just a dream.

12:00-3pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays, 230 9th Ave (at W. 24th St), 212-243-1105, menu available here
