The Weekender

Juicing, Art and Mission Chinese

The weekend is calling. Will you accept the charges?

Thursday
Art and Pool at Lit Lounge
FUSION

Art and Pool at Lit Lounge

East Village drinking treasure Lit Lounge once had a space called Fuse Gallery. You could see and buy new art. Now it’s gone. Get over it. Because Fuse Room’s here. It’s basically Fuse Gallery, but with a bunch of murals. Also a pool table. Progress marches on.

ON A MISSION

The Easiest Way to Get Mission Chinese

Hours you might wait for a table at Mission Chinese: 4
Odds you’d wait that long, even if a bad kung-pao-pastrami craving hit: 10:1
Odds you can now just have it handed to you at your door: 1:1
Chance you’re smiling right now: 100%

Now delivering, Mission Chinese Food, 154 Orchard St (between Rivington and Stanton), 212-529-8800

Le Bilboquet Is Back
BILBO BAGGINS

Le Bilboquet Is Back

You’re familiar with the phrase “back with a vengeance.” Like when an Upper East Side French institution—say, Le Bilboquet—closes, and then opens back up in a sexy new spot with twice the space. That would be a prime example.

European Handsomeness in SoHo
JUST COS

European Handsomeness in SoHo

COS: H&M’s much nicer passion project. But you can’t get it here. Or you couldn’t, anyway—Opening Ceremony’s brought some handsome cashmere sweaters and wool topcoats from the much-coveted brand stateside. No word on if it’s duty-free.

Through Nov 10, COS Pop-Up at Opening Ceremony, 35 Howard St (between Crosby and Broadway), 212-219-2688

Monday
Melvin’s Juice, Now at the Dream
JUICES WILD

Melvin’s Juice, Now at the Dream

Melvin’s Juice Box [melvəz dʒs bɑːks]
proper noun, plural, Melvin’s Juice Boxes
1. A Miss Lily’s juice offshoot capable of wiping out the negative effects of a previous night’s non-juice drinking. Now open in a large new space at the Dream Downtown. Coincidentally, where many such nights have occurred.
