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.

Ongoing, Alex Mill, 268 Elizabeth St (near Houston), 212-343-2539

Well, It’s Called No Fucking Autotune
THE PARTY

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.

Saturday
A Golden Pastry
THE DONUT

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.

Available now, $100, Manila Social, 2 Hope St (at Roebling), Brooklyn, 718-384-4396

Comedians in Clubs Singing Karaoke
THE SHOW

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
AND NOW...

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.
