THE HORROR

The Most Legit Haunted House in Town

THE BRUNCH

Brunch All Day at Alder

Brunch is fantastic. Brunch with ham-and-cheese éclairs and bacon-egg-and-cheese dumplings from Wylie Dufresne is... fantastic-er. And now, brunch just goes all day long on Sundays at Alder. Stopping is for wimps.

Sundays, noon-3pm and 5:30-9pm, Alder, 157 2nd Ave (between 9th and 10th), 212-539-1900

What Else Is New
New Sake. New Cocktail Gardens. Nice.
AND NOW...

New Sake. New Cocktail Gardens. Nice.

If you like sake: Yakitori Tora (pictured), a tiny sliver of Japanese-coal-smoked skewers and sake, exists now on Kenmare.
If you like the outdoors: There’s a massive new garden in Bushwick with cocktails from a Ward III vet and duck fried rice. It’s called Forrest Point. Also: stay strong.

Beyond
Halloween at the NoMad
THE PARTY

Halloween at the NoMad

They’re shutting down the NoMad for a black-tie evening of cocktails, edibles, gowns, masks, a brass band and magic. They call this evening “Halloween,” and you need to get the tickets now. It just might catch on.
