Things to do for October 09, 2014

The Weekender

Nudity, Glitter and Burgers

Open your eyes, and you’ll see the weekend was there all along.

Thursday
Sanctioned Nudity. For Sale.
THE ART DATE

Sanctioned Nudity. For Sale.

Celebrities. Cocktails. You bidding to take home a nude artwork from someone who’ll be famous someday. In sum, this is what this thing is about. Oh, and it’s about benefiting the New York Academy of Art. So artists can continue to produce important pieces like these.

Saturday
A Euro Rager Comes Stateside
THE PARTY

A Euro Rager Comes Stateside

In Europe, they’ve got this insane party with constant confetti bombs. And there’re also people on stilts and acrobats swinging above as you dance through it all. But it’s not in America. Oh, wait—we’re being told it is now in America. At Space Ibiza. Starting Saturday. What timing.

Saturdays, 11pm, $25-$35, Elrow at Space Ibiza NY, 637 W 50th St (between 11th and 12th)

Crudo and Bloodys in Chelsea
THE BRUNCH

Crudo and Bloodys in Chelsea

Barchetta’s getting into the brunch game. Their lineup: clam-topped Bloodys, pumpkin-baguette french toast and a burger that appears to be overwhelming its bun beyond all reason. In other words, they know what they’re doing.

Sat-Sun, Barchetta, 461 W 23rd St (between 9th and 10th), 212-255-7400

Tuesday
French Soil on the UES
THE FRENCH WAY

French Soil on the UES

We don’t know how to say this, but... the French Embassy, on the Upper East Side, now has a bookstore. With French books. And you can go there. And Matt Weiner and Marjane Satrapi and Joseph Stiglitz are speaking there this week. Damn it France, you’ve done it again. 

Oct 14-19, 11am-7pm, Albertine, 972 5th Ave (between 78th and 79th), 212-650-0070

What Else Is New
Tribeca Italian and West Village Fire
AND NOW...

Tribeca Italian and West Village Fire

If you like Italian: They’ve done both duck and lobster in the parmesan style at Morsi in Tribeca. Bonus: they’ve got serious meatball-of-the-year contenders.
If you’re cold: A guy from the House and one from Per Se are doing fireside burgers and bone marrow at the Lodge Club.
