Your Perks: 1) An evening of cocktailing on a hotel’s rooftop that’s been transformed into a ski chalet. Really. 2) Tennis lessons on some of the most exclusive courts in the city. 3) Tickets to a show that’s been called “an erotically tinged bacchanal.” So, maybe definitely go.
Things to do for November 25, 2015
Poultry, Baby’s All Right and Psycho Art
World-Class Jazz at the St. Regis
Once upon a time, Duke Ellington and Count Basie regularly played the St. Regis. The point: the St. Regis knows jazz. And they’re launching a new series of it, starting with a night where Nat King Cole’s brother plays Nat King Cole’s songs, right before Christmas. Nice timing.
Getting Down Before Thanksgiving
You: “Do you have plans to immerse yourself in house music for five hours before spending
the rest of the weekend eating turkey surrounded by distant relatives?”
Some Other Person: “No.”
Y: “Well, do you want to?”
That conversation was brought to you by this party.
The Finest Thanksgivings in Town
At the NoMad: Foie gras torchon, turkey, obviously (or venison, if turkey’s getting old),
sweet potato tarts.
At EMP: Smoked foie gras and, if not turkey, butter-poached lobster or slow-cooked beef. And butternut squash sorbet.
At Maison Premiere: Scallops, chestnut ravioli, pumpkin-pecan tart.
... Yeah, they’re all better than your mom’s.
Ernest Alexander’s Gift to You
