Your Perks: 1) An open bar cocktail party complete with food, dancing and an entire museum to roam. 2) An afternoon of scenic vistas, live music and drinking wine. Lots of wine. 3) An Asian food festival where you eat and drink all you want at the Mandarin Oriental. Boredom is impossible.
Things to do for March 12, 2015

In the proud history of moving images, Mad Men has created some of the better moments. And some of the more handsome offices. And Don Draper’s office, along with some original screenplay stuff, is now at the museum that’s about moving images. It’s the kind of thing museums are for.
What Else Is New
Williamsburg’s Got an Umami Burger Now
