Milk Punch Elections and Beheaded Royalty

And a Danny Meyer Pop-Up

If weekend doesn’t win, it’s a shame.

Wednesday
Let Them Eat Crispy Frog Legs
THE FRANCOPHILES

Let Them Eat Crispy Frog Legs

Le Boudoir, that French-inspired, red-washed beauty of a Brooklyn Heights bar, is having a masquerade-style shindig in honor of Marie Antoinette’s birthday. There will be rose syrup champagne cocktails, good tunes and strawberry-and-cream cake. Which they’ll let you eat.

Nov 2, 6pm-close, Le Boudoir, 135 Atlantic Ave (between Clinton and Henry), Brooklyn, 347-227-8337

Thursday
Buy Some Cashmere. Say Hello to Steven Alan.
THE POP-UP

Buy Some Cashmere. Say Hello to Steven Alan.

Good news. Naadam has set up shop in the Steven Alan Chelsea store for all your imminent cashmere-related needs. And to kick things off, the Naadam founder, the editorial director of The Cut and Steven Alan himself will be having a chat about the collab. There will be adult beverages, a chance to jump in on the conversation and many handsome items for the acquiring.

Nov 3, 5-8pm, Steven Alan, 140 10th Ave (between 18th and 19th), 646-664-0606

Friday
Looks Like Verboten. Feels Like Verboten. Isn’t Verboten.
THE DISCO SHARK

Looks Like Verboten. Feels Like Verboten. Isn’t Verboten.

Here’s the official opening party for the club where Verboten used to be—with DJs Edu Imbernon, Eli & Fur and Jon Charnis kicking things off right. This new spot is owned by a Pacha guy, was named after a German TV cop and looks pretty much the same as Verboten, save for a glittering disco shark hanging above the dance floor. Which feels like a pretty important change, really.

Nov 4, 10pm, Schimanski, 54 N 11th St (between Wythe and Kent), Brooklyn, 718-486-2299

Saturday
To Bryant Park, for a Danny Meyer Pop-Up
THE GRILLED CHEESE

To Bryant Park, for a Danny Meyer Pop-Up

Should you find yourself at Bryant Park’s holiday market, head to Danny Meyer’s new pop-up, Public Fare—for things like pressed smoked-pork-and-country-ham sandwiches, smoked-cheddar-and-havarti grilled cheeses and tomato soup with crispy pasta. Solid Christmas shopping fuel, that.

Tuesday
Somewhere to Watch the Election (and Drink Through It)
THE TENSION

Somewhere to Watch the Election (and Drink Through It)

That East Village spot with music curated by Adrian Grenier will be showing the election results on big screens in both of its main bars, and serving milk punch. You may need that pretty badly.

Nov 8, The VNYL, 110 3rd Ave (between 12th and 13th), 917-675-7725
