This week, you’re getting 25% off swimsuits, ties and other warm-weather gear from Lake Como’s Mitchumm Industries. (Clooney’d be proud.) Plus: framed letterpress prints of whiskey, pork and other refined essentials from the Southern gents at Bearings, and majestic, hand-painted animal heads from White Faux Taxidermy. Your walls deserve Perks, too.
Things to do for March 22, 2013
Sweetbread Sliders, Endless Wine and Opera in a Bar
The weekend’s gonna leave it all on the floor tonight.
Tonight’s the last time you’ll be able to join Piazzetta for their wine week celebration. On the table: unlimited pours of three different wines throughout the night. Oh, and four courses of stuff like smoked mozzarella and miniature manicotti from the chef of Il Mulino. But we had you at unlimited pours.
Set Reopens After a Face-Lift
So, Set’s ready to open its doors after a couple of renovations. Which, finally. And while Bob Sinclar’s manning the decks tonight, you’ll find new iPad cocktail menus, table butlers and scantily clad bottle waitresses delivering your scotch from robotic ziplines overhead. Good things just tend to fall into your lap.
Barhopping on a Double-Decker Bus
The double-decker bus. Totally underutilized in this town. Anyway, one’ll be shuttling you this Saturday from a poolside BBQ at the Broken Shaker (expect punch bowls and live rock) to an after-party at Radio with... more live rock. It’s like killing two birds with one bus.
This Is About Waffles and Other Stuff
Brunch waffles. Doesn’t get much better than that. Except... it does. Because GastroPod’s doing you a brunch solid and topping them with kimchi this Sunday. And in case that’s not enough, they’ve got sweetbread sliders. And if that’s still not enough, they’ve got Bloody Marys and beer. You demanding bastard.
Opera in a Bar. Why Not.
You’ve seen some pretty crazy things in bars. Fights. Fire. That one time a waitress... well, anyway. Time to add an operetta to that list. Yup, classically trained opera singers are taking over the Stage with a piece about seduction, tango and women of the night. Sounds like a standing ovation.
