Your Perks: 1) An app that sends a professional barber to you, wherever that may be. 2) Moroccan goatskin leather bags that are naturally waterproof, or seaside-vacation-proof. 3) Attractive pleasure-inducing devices that induce a lot of pleasure. They’re good at their job.
Things to do for March 09, 2016
Whiskey Ice Cream and a Goodfellas Dinner
Pay no attention to that weekend behind the curtain.
Live Music. Bushwick. Obviously.
Guy from the Rapture walks into an opening party at a new Bushwick neo-dive bar. He does a set while you drink gratis drinks. That was either A) an extremely millennial joke setup, or B) something actually happening.
OddFellows + Whiskey
In honor of some Irish holiday, the cream-based mad scientists of OddFellows are launching a flight of three different Irish whiskey ice creams through April—12-year malt, spiked Irish coffee ice cream and handmade marshmallows are involved. Guess hands can make marshmallows.
Pancakes and Bloodys at Syndicated
You’ll wake up late on Saturday. You’ll meet friends for a 2:30 brunch of pulled-pork-topped breakfast tots and gochujang Bloody Marys, and then you’ll watch Spring Breakers without leaving the building. To recap: tots, spicy alcohol, Franco.
<i>Goodfellas</i> Dinner at Riverpark
Reasons this will make an exceptional date night:
—You’re right on the river.
—Five Goodfellas-inspired courses happen: spaghetti with red sauce and razor-thin garlic, pan-seared ribeye... you remember the scene.
—You’ll make clever remarks as a Goodfellas screening occurs.
Do not take offense if someone finds you “funny.”
