Things to do for December 11, 2014

The Weekender

Waffles, Ramones and Stripper Windows

Someday, the weekend will have the power to not just “let” it snow.

Carson Street, Starring Patrik Ervell
THE HABILIMENTS

Carson Street, Starring Patrik Ervell

Some essential Patrik Ervell minimalism is up for the wearing at Carson Street this weekend, including a few winter pieces you’re not going to find at any other place. Why, what did you think “essential” meant?

Look in the Window. It’s Sinamon.
THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

Look in the Window. It’s Sinamon.

Holiday window displays have been a New York tradition for more than a century. Macy’s. Bergdorf. The gentlemen’s club operated by Vivid. Yeah, the Vivid folks are doing a window display this year. Strategic Santa hat placement is involved. Mannequins aren’t. Just... if you’re in the neighborhood.

Ongoing, Vivid Cabaret, 61 W 37th St (between 5th and 6th), 212-391-2702

Hotel Chelsea’s Back with a Ramone
THE GALLERY DATE

Hotel Chelsea’s Back with a Ramone

We don’t like to throw around terms like “stop the presses,” but, whoa: Hotel Chelsea is kind of back. Specifically, with a gallery showing of some of late, great former resident Dee Dee Ramone’s artwork. The non-bass kind.

Through Jan 1, Hotel Chelsea, 222 W 23rd St (between 7th and 8th)

Saturday
Arrogant Swine’s Insane Brunch
THE BRUNCH

Arrogant Swine’s Insane Brunch

Banana-pudding waffles with rum syrup exist. Monte Cristos with orange french toast as the bread do, too. And they come with reggae and gratis Bloodys at Arrogant Swine. If you have weekend plans, you should probably quit your life to attend this brunch.

Sat-Sun, 11am-4pm, Arrogant Swine, 173 Morgan Ave (at Scholes), 347-328-5595

What Else Is New
A Cocktail Stunner and Ramen Insanity
AND NOW...

A Cocktail Stunner and Ramen Insanity

For cocktails: Gordon Bar’s (pictured) got part of the Lure empire doing fireside jerk rum toddies in a capacious SoHo lounge.
For noodles: Mu Ramen was a noodles-and-broth phenomenon during the summer. Then it was gone. Now it’s here for good in LIC. Slurp in good health.
