Things to do for October 11, 2013
Whiskey, RedFarm and Redwood Martinis
Ain’t nuthin’ but a weekend thang, baby.
Something Smells in Williamsburg
As far as smelling good goes, you’re in favor of it. So you should know about this pop-up from the smelling-good experts at Juniper Ridge. They make soaps that smell like Big Sur and colognes that smell like mountains. And they’ve brought redwood martinis to celebrate. We hear they smell like gin.
Kin Shop, Now with 100% More Brunch
1939: Thailand becomes Thailand.
1973: Professor Edward Brunch postulates the theoretical possibility of combining breakfast with lunch
1974: “Leakfast” dies a quick death, is never heard from again.
2010: Kin Shop opens in the West Village.
This Saturday: You consume sriracha Bloody Marias and Thai fried chicken there. A great brunch is born.
There are windowpane sport coats you do not yet own. And we can’t accept that. Neither can Hickey Freeman, so they’re giving you 80% off, which should go a long way in fixing that problem. Autumn appreciates your handsomeness efforts.
RedFarm, Now on the UWS
RedFarm’s on the UWS now. Great news. But... that wait. It’s coming, too. So before Pac-Man dumplings
and (new) diced tuna with noodles, here’re some nearby thirst-quenching time killers.
—Manhattan Cricket Club: a hidden upstairs cocktail parlor.
—Jacob’s Pickles: dills and whiskey a few blocks north.
—Shake Shack: Shake Shack.
