Your Perks: 1) A membership that scores you tough-to-get reservations at top restaurants around the country. Useful. Quite useful. 2) Stunning wooden headphones that look and sound amazing. Nicely done, trees. 3) A special bottle of Dom Pérignon. Make sure you always have (at least) one handy.
Things to do for February 24, 2016
A New Nightclub, a Tiki Disco and Watching the Oscars at a Rooftop Bar
Who wore the weekend best?
A Tale of Two End-of-Season Sales
Your end-of-February weather forecast: beats us. Your end-of-February sale forecast: up to 60% off Gitman Bros. Vintage shirts and Schott leather jackets at Rider, plus sizable discounts on A.P.C. sweaters, Paul Smith pants and Billy Reid blazers at Apartment No. 9. Apparently sales are still unaffected by climate change.
Meet Wicker Park’s Born-Again Nightclub
1993, Wicker Park: Underground house music was on the rise at a club called Red Dog.
Friday night, Wicker Park: A warehouse-style nightclub called Annex is bringing the place back to life with vaulted ceilings, state-of-the-art visual effects and 75,000 watts of sound.
Saturday afternoon, your home: Probably a lot of pizza.
Good Weekend to Continue Liking Brunch
We don’t know if you’re still into the whole brunch thing, but there’s a new one at Corridor Brewery & Provisions. It involves croque madame brioche waffles (pictured), blue crab salad benedicts and a top-secret Bloody Mary mix. Again, though, only if you’re still into brunch.
Watching the Oscars at a Rooftop Bar
Leo: Hope I win Sunday night.
You: Same. I’m voting for you in the J.Parker’s “Oscar Madness” bracket pool.
Leo: What’s that?
You: Just something they’ll have during their viewing party, along with personal bottles of champagne.
Leo: You think people will vote for Redmayne?
Leo: Fucking Redmayne.
Texas + Tiki + Disco = This
From Sunday to next Friday, Lost Lake becomes a Texas Tiki Disco. “Texas” comes from their partnership with Houston-based Anvil Bar & Refuge. “Tiki” comes from their special menu of tropical classic drinks like the coconut-y Absinthe Gullywash. “Disco” comes from Thank You’s ’70s-style appetizers (read: pigs in a blanket). And maybe you dancing.
