Your Perks: 1) A vintage Rolex. Or two. Or three. “Too much of a good thing” does not apply. 2) An umbrella that’ll text you if you leave it behind. Good friend, this umbrella. 3) A Versace suit. You know, the internationally renowned house of—anyway, yes, Versace.
Things to do for February 19, 2015
Biscuits, Gravy and Whiskey
The weekend is for immediate loading and unloading.
Hotel Rooms by Day. Just Sayin’.
This isn’t exactly like renting a hotel room by the hour. But it’s not exactly unlike it either. Here’s Hotels By Day, a site that lets you get a room from morning to midafternoon. So far it’s just the Capitol Skyline Hotel on the roster here, but they’ll be adding more. No idea how this could be useful.
Up to 70% Off Gear at Hudson Trail
Temps might hit zero tonight. Which makes this a good time to talk about parkas, gloves and other stuff that Hudson Trail is knocking up to 70% off of during its annual liquidation sale on outdoor gear. Like bikes and kayaks, too. For some other time.
A Pig Stuffed Like a Sausage at DBGB
Here’s what Daniel Boulud’s people are serving now at DBGB: a whole suckling pig for eight people, stuffed with a sausage-y mixture of pork loin, greens and chestnuts, and roasted for hours. Get ready to pair it with a bottle of whiskey and bottomless beer. Then get ready to invent a reason to do this.
A Biscuit Pop-Up at a Distillery. Huzzah.
Not like a new local distillery needs to gild the lily in any way, but here’s One Eight Distilling inviting Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. in for an afternoon to turn out biscuits and gravy while you tour the operation and sample the wares. We suppose gravy pairs with anything.
Casa Luca Goes Bottomless
The answer: porchetta on rye. Puffed pancakes with maple gelato. Ricotta bomboloni. And bottomless gazpacho Bloody Marys. And now, the question: what do you get when Fabio Trabocchi launches brunch at Casa Luca? You also get full.
