Your Perks: 1) Blazers, button-ups, ties and other things you’ll use to keep you handsomely warm in winter. 2) A bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée and a couple glasses. Can’t have one without the other. 3) If these watches make you jealous, that’s completely natural.
Things to do for January 06, 2016
Flannel, Auto-Tune Hatred and Gold Donuts
Weekend is the best medicine.
Alex Mill: 40% Less Than Usual
Have you noticed an innate desire for flannel lately? Yeah? Us, too. So we may join you at Alex Mill, where they have excellent versions of that because it’s the “end of the season.” Yeah, it really feels like it.
Well, It’s Called No Fucking Autotune
In order to provide you with respite from the occasionally overproduced, sometimes vapid modern music that you yet also frequently want to dance to anyway, Our Wicked Lady is screening classic live rock and soul performances. James Brown, the Beatles, Bieber. Psych.
A Golden Pastry
You wake up on Saturday. You head to Williamsburg for Saturday activities. You want coffee and a champagne-flavored, purple-yam-filled, 24-karat-gold-topped donut. And you get it, in the form of Manila Social’s Golden Cristal Ube Donut. That’s how that works.
Comedians in Clubs Singing Karaoke
In a nod to more elegant times, Sid Gold’s Request Room is bringing in humorous people to do comedy, which they’ll then follow up with hopefully terrible karaoke renditions of songs that are way out of their range, with live piano accompaniment. We’re optimistic.
What Else Is New
From the Gilroy Guys, on the UES
Here’s the recipe for evenings at this rustic, wintry spot: potato pierogies, eggplant meatballs, brownies with peanut butter sauce, with cognac-enhanced Sazeracs sprinkled in between. To taste.
