Your Perks: 1) A red wine tasting in the East Village. Get there. 2) The kind of sunglasses that make strangers stop in their tracks and declare interjections. Like “Wow.” 3) Shorts, pants and shirts specially designed to keep you looking (and smelling) fresh during a workout.
Things to do for February 17, 2016
Floating Beer Parties, Ansel + PDT and High Graffiti
The weekend would like to thank its agent. Jim, you’re the greatest.
A.P.C., Oak Street, Etc., Almost Free
It’s the end of a season. Well, almost. Close enough for French Garment Cleaners to have all the A.P.C., Oak Street, Maison Kitsuné, Engineered Garments and other brands you like wearing at up to 90% off. Which is close enough for you.
Ansel + PDT + Secrets
Here’s where you’ll sit at Dom’s hidden upstairs after-hours tasting table and let an seven-course, all-dessert menu with cocktail pairings from PDT’s founder wash over you. Expect chocolate-caramel crispy potatoes, cabernet-whiskey-curaçao concoctions, huckleberry-topped brioche... Expect to feel very, very pleased with your life choices.
It’s Called a Beer Cruise, So...
Not all boats in the NYC harbor are heated, floating beer cruises, where you tour around Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge whilst sampling beers from 30 NY breweries. Some of them. This one is, that’s for sure.
They’re Pretty Much Graffiti Legends
It’s a tribute to graffiti artists like Skeme, Bio, Ces, John “Crash” Matos and other big names that’ve shaped the state of street art throughout the years. Expect to see their work showcased on photos of trains, streets and everywhere else. And, sure, maybe the occasional canvas.
What Else Is New
Maple-Bacon-Chocolate Rice Pudding Lives
Someone Who Really Likes Rice Pudding: “I fear there aren’t enough rice pudding
Us: “Here’s one. They’ve got 15 classic ice-cream-inspired flavors, and then rotating seasonal ones like pumpkin and caramel apple.”
SWRLRP: “Anything else I need to know?
Us: “Their opening special is maple-bacon-chocolate.”
SWRLRP: “Yeah it is.”
