Your Perks: 1) A case of six carefully selected incredible red wines from the Columbia Valley. Only the best for you. 2) An aerodynamic, rip-proof and virtually weightless umbrella. 3) A number of vintage-inspired, gallery-worthy, LED-illuminated prints. You’re about to see the light.
Things to do for November 06, 2014
A Beer Fest, a Yacht Party and an Ice Rink
Take a walk on the weekend side.
It’s Decorative Ice Rink Season...
It’s happening again. Union Square’s getting an ice rink. Guess October summer is over. Anyway, maybe bring a date here and skate some figure eights. There, that was just enough winter to earn some hot toddies at Bourbon Steak.
The Ritz’s New BBQ Brunch
Good news: the new monthly Saturday brunch at the Ritz-Carlton is not their usual Sunday caviar brunch. That sounds like bad news, doesn’t it. Well, this means barbecue brisket, cheddar-bacon biscuits and a DIY Bloody Mary bar with garnishes like spicy pumpkin bitters and goat cheese skewers. So yeah, good news.
Wine and Charcuterie on a Yacht
Fact: wine tastes better on a yacht. Here, we’ll prove it. Pick a Saturday, invite a date or a few friends, and set sail for a five-course pairing with Bluxome winery and Les Clos. Expect pâté with pinot noir, and charcuterie with rosé. We’ll call the pinot “Exhibit A.”
Consider Yourself a Ski-Pole Designer
Soul Poles’ bamboo ski poles: you might need them. They’re lighter, sturdier and you designed them yourself—assuming you’ve popped by their pop-up shop at Patagonia, where one of their pros will help you construct your masterpieces. Just a heads up, though—ski-pole critics can be vicious.
This is a good month for Mondays. Every week, 21st Amendment and Magnolia will each release six new Belgian-inspired brews. What that means: you’ll grab a “boarding pass,” hit both spots and maybe try a beer made with chardonnay, or an IPA made with Earl Grey. Good month for Earl Grey, too.
