Your Perks: 1) An epic day of massages and steam rooms for you and maybe a friend in Tribeca. 2) A physical copy of the first Playboy and digital access to every issue of Playboy ever published. See, history can be sexy. 3) A nearly indestructible leather bag by way of Great Britain.
Things to do for December 11, 2014
Waffles, Ramones and Stripper Windows
Someday, the weekend will have the power to not just “let” it snow.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What Else Is New
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.
