Your Perks: 1) A VIP ticket or table at an indoor Halloween garden party in the Meatpacking District. It’s less civilized than it sounds. 2) Cocktails and small plates on an indoor rooftop. Fall-date-approved. 3) A private table (complete with bottles of Grey Goose and champagne) at a massive Times Square Halloween party.
Things to do for October 16, 2014
Breakfast Pizza, Steak and Burlesque
Hold still—looks like you’ve got a little weekend on you.
Freemans Sporting Club in Midtown

Scott Conant’s Back for One Night
You know Scott Conant. Started Scarpetta. Makes the world’s greatest spaghetti. Does car commercials now. Right, that’s the guy.

Or secrets.
Eating Steak with Your Bare Hands
Limitless steak and beer. No utensils. Williamsburg. That’s all we’re going to tell you about this.
