Like a Ski Chalet on a Midtown Rooftop
PERK ALERT

Like a Ski Chalet on a Midtown Rooftop

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.

World-Class Jazz at the St. Regis
THE JAZZ

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.

Tickets available now for Dec 21, 7pm, $125, Birdland Sessions at the St. Regis, 2 E 55th St (at 5th), 212-753-4500, tickets here or call 212-581-3080

Getting Down Before Thanksgiving
THE DANCE

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?”
SOP: “Sure.”

That conversation was brought to you by this party.

Thursday
The Finest Thanksgivings in Town
THE THANKSGIVINGS

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.

THE SALE

Ernest Alexander’s Gift to You

For any upcoming holiday travel, it’s essential that you have a duffel with a separate shoe compartment and a field jacket. And both of them need to be waxed. Here are those, in post-Thanksgiving sale form. Good form.

Nov 27-29, Ernest Alexander, 98 Thompson St (between Spring and Prince), 212-775-1199

Psycho, the Art
THE DATE

Psycho, the Art

Classic movies are great. That’s why they call them classic movies. It’s also cool when artists use them to create light boxes of Psycho and Death from Above playing cards. If you don’t believe us, here’s this exhibit to prove it. How convenient.
