Your Perks: 1) An evening of unlimited oysters, premium whiskeys and live music at the Bowery Hotel. 2) A huge tailgate party and a ticket to the Jets vs. Broncos game. 3) A ticket to the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival Gala and Awards Ceremony. Meryl Streep will be there. Tell her we say hi.
Things to do for October 02, 2014
Cocktail Gardens, Sexy Masks and Wylie Dufresne
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a weekend.
A Rare Sale at Billykirk
You have things. Things that sometimes need to be transported from one place to another. Which is where your new Billykirk bag comes in. You know, the one you can get at this sale.
The Most Legit Haunted House in Town
Mole people. Flatbush sewer ghosts. Punk subway zombies. Every insane New York legend you’ve ever heard of is coming for you at this LES haunted house. And our friends at UD Perks are hooking you up with a private tour and pre-tour drinks. Which should take the edge off.
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.
What Else Is New
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.
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.
