Things to do for January 15, 2015

The Weekender

Rock, Roll and Rooftops

The weekend is staring you right in the face.

Thursday
Russ & Daughters and Live Music
THE SHOW

Russ & Daughters and Live Music

You get a bagel. You get some smoked fish. You get some latkes with caviar. You... just keep eating, really. That’s what you do at Russ & Daughters Café. Only tonight, you’ll do so in the presence of a jazz trio, and with cocktails. Hope that’s okay.

Friday
Get Tickets Now. Sqirl Is Coming.
THE JAM

Get Tickets Now. Sqirl Is Coming.

Let’s lay out some simple facts here:
—You don’t live in LA.
—You can’t have the mind-blowing fresh jams or boudin blanc from Sqirl now, since it is, in fact, in LA.
—Sqirl is taking over El Rey and Morgenstern’s next week, and tickets are waiting now.
Do with these facts what you will.

Saturday
Reggie Watts Wants to Look at You
THE STARE

Reggie Watts Wants to Look at You

You remember the Marina Abramović exhibit, where you could sit across from her and just stare for as long as you wanted. Well, this is like that, but with extremely talented improv comedian and musician Reggie Watts, and for only five minutes at a time. It’s all he needs, really.

Rock and Roll and Coats
THE SALES

Rock and Roll and Coats

At Hickoree’s: Japanese goodness, ridiculously handsome ties and flawless anoraks are yours for a song this weekend.
At Morrison Hotel Gallery: Basically every great piece of rock photography that’s ever been published in book form is yours for... a song this weekend.

What Else Is New
Your Daytime Rooftop Is Here
AND NOW...

Your Daytime Rooftop Is Here

If you want to get up: By day, you’ve got a rooftop café. By night, you’ve got somewhere to have your next party. It’s called Upper Story, and here are the photos to prove it. Daytime rooftop cafés: an idea whose time has come.

Now open, Upper Story, 979 3rd Ave, 14th Fl (between 58th and 59th), 212-644-9394
