Gold-Painted Models, a Maze Concert and Mom

It’s okay to be a mama’s weekend.

Thursday
Rumor Has It That You Like New Bars
WORD TO THE WISE

Rumor Has It That You Like New Bars

And now, Brief Interviews with Great New Bars. Us: Do you have peppercorn-and-ginger-infused-vodka beverages? Wise Owl: Sure. Us: How about house-smoked-salmon sliders and truffle calamari? WO: Yup. Us: Is there a patio we can enjoy all that on? WO: Will be soon. Us: You’re very curt.

Gold-Painted Models Serve You Here
LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN

Gold-Painted Models Serve You Here

What happens when two Turkish brothers/civil engineers decide to open a nightclub in the former Leg Room space on Division with programmable wall panels, gold-painted models and a license to stay open until 5am on Saturdays? We’re sure you’ll figure it out.

Saturday
Also, Here’s This New Soho House Bar
OUTFOXED

Also, Here’s This New Soho House Bar

Cheerio. There’s a new watering hole at Soho House called Fox Bar. Inside: a delicious Malört-based concoction, a makeshift arcade and a vintage pay phone you can use to order late-night pizza. Oh, and its design is inspired by British sporting culture. You were wondering why we said cheerio.

A Concert Inside a Maze at Thalia Hall
’MAZING GRACE

A Concert Inside a Maze at Thalia Hall

Well, this is interesting. Some artists installed a giant maze at Thalia Hall, and they’re hosting a series of concerts inside. We see you have mixed reactions to this news:

—“Finally.”
—“I’m kind of scared.”
—“Isn’t that the same premise as Labyrinth?”

It’s the exact same premise as Labyrinth.

Sunday
Two Mother’s Day Brunches to Consider
MAMMA MIA

Two Mother’s Day Brunches to Consider

For something a little Asiatic: You and Mom are sampling Mike Sheerin’s new dumplings at Embeya.
For something a lot Spanish: Black Bull is launching their punch-and-meat-heavy brunch on Sunday. It’s gratis for Mom if she checks in on Facebook. Right. Like she wasn’t going to do that anyway.
