Your Perks: 1) It’s a three-hour bottomless brunch at the McKittrick Hotel. Obviously, it’s going to be an experience. 2) A ticket to see Martin Short and Matthew Broderick on Broadway, plus a private Q&A with the cast. 3) Tennis lessons at one of the city’s most respected institutions. Relax, the courts are both indoors and heated.
Things to do for March 05, 2015
Suits, Swords and Björk
Hell hath no fury like a weekend scorned.
Read Wall and Patrik Ervell for You
In one corner: The suit masters at Read Wall measuring you and making spectacular suits for
you for 30% less than usual.
In the other: You’ve got Patrik Ervell’s minimalist nattiness (lightweight bomber season’s just about here) going for up to 90% off. You don’t have to pick a corner.
Strange Even by Masquerade Standards
Pulp-horror-themed East Village watering hole Lovecraft is doing what will probably be your favorite steampunk masquerade ball of March. There’ll be mind reading, sword-swallowing and fire walking. Yeah, we’re sticking with this being your favorite steampunk masquerade ball of March.
Björk Is All Over MoMA
At MoMA’s newest exhibition, opening Sunday:
—Insane music videos.
—Live performances with a gameleste, a pipe organ, a gravity harp and a Tesla coil.
—A dress that’s also a swan.
Guess who it’s about.
Notorious B.I.G., the Dinner
Dale Talde, of Talde, and Chris Jaeckle, of All’onda, are fans of the Notorious B.I.G. Yet they can’t rap. So they pay tribute to Biggie the only way they know how—by doing oxtail patties, tomato soup and cheesecake based on his lyrics. There’s also bound to be something juicy.
What Else Is New
Bon French Stuff in the East Village
Date alert: we’re getting reports of a devastatingly charming French bistro and cocktail spot in the East Village. There’re eyewitness reports of roasted lamb shoulder and absinthe Aviations.
