THE STEAL

Billy Reid, for Not–Billy Reid Prices

Here’s where you drop by a Billy Reid sample sale for sweaters, coats, jackets and other things that are very appropriate to put on your body right now for up to 80% off. Hell, since it’s the holidays, maybe even think about someone else’s body. Uh, you know what we mean.

Nov 30-Dec 3, 11am-8pm, Billy Reid sample sale, 53 Bond St, 2nd Fl (between Bowery and Lafayette)

Thursday
Wintry Dates Will Go Well Here
THE WINTER WONDERLAND

Wintry Dates Will Go Well Here

One good thing about the coming cold: you can take a date to a particularly festive-looking garden, post up by a charcoal warming station and have a boozy Mexican-style hot chocolate or spiced rum apple cider. The last time you did that in the summer, it just didn’t go so well.

Starts Dec 1, Midnights, 149 N 6th St (between Bedford and Berry), Brooklyn, 718-384-6961

The Cheese-Centric Spot You’ve Been Waiting For
THE WINE AND CHEESE

The Cheese-Centric Spot You’ve Been Waiting For

A team of alumni of the Modern just opened this cheese-focused spot that pairs local ingredients with artisanal cheeses, a strategy that results in things like roasted-and-pickled cauliflower with cheddar, chilies and breadcrumbs, and umami Caesar salad with shiitake and pecorino. (Slideshow right here.) In sum: cheese.

THE MEAT

Or You’ve Got Pigs to Feast On at Santina

Should you prefer your evenings centered around meat, the Meatpacking spot from the Carbone team now has a menu section dedicated entirely to pigs. Expect things like lardo crepes, country pork chops, guanciale rice and linguine with clams and ’nduja. In sum: pork.

Available now at Santina, 820 Washington St (between Gansevoort and Little W 12th), 212-254-3000

And Gallery-Caliber Prints for All

So, this company that works with some of the world’s best photographers and picture archives to offer really nice limited-edition prints has teamed up with expert taste-havers Mr Porter for a pop-up gallery. There’ll be works from Terry O’Neill, Baron Wolman and Walter Iooss. Go. Peruse. Cross numerous names off that list we know you’ve been working on.
