Here’s a great Perk: a custom suit and tailored shirt from a world-class tailor. 750 bucks. (He’ll even come to your place.) Your other Perks: 20% off a hand-carved wooden speaker/iPhone dock with a buffalo horn (pretty amazing) and futuristically good-looking watches from NOVO. Happy Perking.
Things to do for September 19, 2013
Fried Chicken, Lucha Libre and Vintage Suits
Well, here’s another fine mess the weekend’s gotten you into.
Yup, it’s that time of the year again. When Ferragamo belts, Armani suits and Gucci shoes gather for your sartorial perusal. So think of the labels at Fashionably Conscious as an epic get-together of vintage handsomeness. And the kickoff to your self-gifting season.
Taste America’s this Friday. It’s an event where you’ll drink (thanks, Bar Lab crew), you’ll eat (five courses, courtesy of Michael Schwartz and Norman Van Aken) and you’ll swap bifocal-etiquette tips with Ted Allen in a Spanish monastery. Sounds solid.
This Saturday, you’re celebrating Mexican Independence Day. Again. Except this time, you’ll be joined by lucha libre wrestlers, roving mariachis, and 20 different food trucks and restaurants from around the city (think: Huahua’s and Ms. Cheezious). Also, there’ll be a burrito eating contest. So... throw your sombrero into the ring.
Macchialina Goes All Brunch on You
Michael Pirolo’s decided you don’t have enough panettone with maple-pecan butter in your life. Polenta and eggs, too. Which is exactly why you’ll hit up his new brunch at Macchialina this Sunday. Because it has those things.
A Fond Farewell to Fried Chicken
Safe to say that Breaking Bad’s taught you a few lessons. Namely, all good things come to an end. Including things involving fried chicken. And so you’ll say goodbye to Michy’s all-you-can-eat fried-chicken Wednesdays. There’s only two of them left. No crying in the cornbread.
