Things to do for October 16, 2014

The Weekender

Breakfast Pizza, Steak and Burlesque

Hold still—looks like you’ve got a little weekend on you.

Thursday
A Very MePa Halloween
PERK ALERT

A Very MePa Halloween

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.

Freemans Sporting Club in Midtown
THE CLOTHES

Freemans Sporting Club in Midtown

First, a little style math: shirt + jacket = shacket. Apropos of nothing, it’s shacket season. And flannel-suit season. And looking-handsome season. Also apropos of nothing, Freemans Sporting Club is now operating out of a shop-in-shop at Bloomingdale’s in Midtown. Okay, maybe it’s all apropos of something.

Friday
Scott Conant’s Back for One Night
THE RESERVATION

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. So he’s doing a secret-location, one-night-only pop-up to preview his soon-to-be-extant restaurant on Saturday, and Friday morning is when you need to grab reservations if you like spaghetti. Or secrets.

Reservations available Oct 17, 9am, through Resy, Conant pop-up Oct 18, event location disclosed upon reservation

Eating Steak with Your Bare Hands
THE MEAT

Eating Steak with Your Bare Hands

Limitless steak and beer. No utensils. Williamsburg. That’s all we’re going to tell you about this.

Saturday
Petaluma’s Doing This Brunch Thing Now
THE BRUNCH

Petaluma’s Doing This Brunch Thing Now

... and then into your life roared the breakfast pizza like a bat out of hell, covered with bacon, sausage, cheese and eggs. And your life was better for it. It was that time when Petaluma started doing brunch. It was this weekend...

Wednesday
Bayou Burlesque at Sons of Essex
THE SHOW

Bayou Burlesque at Sons of Essex

Sons of Essex is Sons of Essex. Except of course that one time a month, when it’s now going to be transformed into a speakeasy version of New Orleans’s historic vice district, complete with live jazz, étouffée and not-very-clothed dancers. It’s different on those nights.

Oct 22, 7-10pm, $90, Lulu’s Dove House at Sons of Essex, 133 Essex St (between Rivington and Stanton), 212-674-7100, tickets here
