Your Perks: 1) Smokeless fireplaces that go on a desk or hang on a wall and pair well with wine. And fall. 2) A stunning Italian corkscrew. Marvel at it. Or, you know, open a Bordeaux with it. 3) A couple grooming kits with face wash, moisturizer, aftershave and the like. Treat your face right.
Things to do for October 30, 2014
A Sexy Haunted Mansion, Brunch at Rosebud and Beetlejuice
The weekend gives out full-size candy bars.
We recommend trick-or-treating at Brass Union this Halloween. Because they’re providing pumpkin shortbread cookies with apple buttercream, pumpkin-infused apple brandy Sideshows, the obligatory costume contest and a dance party. Yep. Brass Union is the good house this year.
Sexy Haunted Mansion. Naturally.
Haunted mansions are supposed to be scary. But it looks like Emerald Lounge has chosen to fill their makeshift three-night version of one with sexy nurses, sexy cops and sexy burlesque dancers. So it seems more like a sexy mansion.
Faithful keeper of Kennedy-esque style North River Outfitter is holding their first-ever warehouse sale. If you go expecting actual discounted warehouses, you’ll be greatly disappointed. But if you go expecting gear from the likes of Barbour, Peter Millar and Ralph Lauren all for under $150, you should be fine.
“Rosebud Brunch” Has a Nice Ring to It
The brunch lever has been pulled at Rosebud. What this means: smoked-brisket hash, chili-glazed bacon hush puppies and cold-brewed Kentucky Iced Coffees with maple syrup and a secret ingredient that you’ll never guess. Unless you guess “bourbon.”
Cocktailing Your Way Through Beetlejuice
Looks like Backbar is doing a thing where they screen Beetlejuice and pair it with three courses of movie snacks like spiced popcorn and cocktails such as Gin & Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice. No word on whether or not drinking that summons Michael Keaton.
