There are two women in Brooklyn making jams in small batches. Jams like blueberry bourbon, sugar-coated banana and rum, and pumpkin chai. And if you’re a living, breathing human, you’ll hear that and be excited that we have an exclusive bundle of five such jams just for you. Your toast thanks you in advance.

This Weekend, You Go Underground
To a Password-Protected Bar and a Subterranean Christmas Party That Just Made the Naughty ListBy Sam Eichner
Have a Very Tiki Christmas
Just think of Sippin’ Santa’s Surf Shack as the same old Lost Lake, except with thousands of twinkling lights, a festive playlist and special holiday-forward tiki drinks created by Paul McGee and his friends from New Orleans’s Latitude 29 and NYC’s Boilermaker. Nice thought, isn’t it...
Password-Protected Truffle Fries
Sure, the whole “speakeasy” thing is pretty played out. But try convincing yourself that Meet & Whiskey, a password-protected bar underneath Randolph Row BBQ stalwart Porkchop—where you can eat truffle fries and drink barrel-aged whiskey drinks while lounging on antique furniture—sounds un-fun. (It’s okay if you don’t want to.)
Your Out-of-Town Guests Stay Here Now
A word of advice for those about to host out-of-towners: the Robey and the Hollander now exist at the six corners in Wicker Park. The former’s a boutique hotel with a fancy French-American café; the latter’s a social-media-forward hostel. And if you want to know more, here you go.
A Timeline of Two Very Important New Menus
At happy hour: Head to GT Fish & Oyster for their new four-course oyster tasting menu
with shooters, sliders and poke spoons.
After midnight: Swing by Mott St for their new late-night menu with Asian-inspired hot dogs and ramen cotton candy. Feel free to read the words “ramen cotton candy” again.
This Christmas Party Just Made the Naughty List
On Saturday, you’re attending a rather iniquitous “Dark Christmas” party at SPiN, where leather-clad Mrs. Clauses dance, evil elves play with fire and snow queens double as trapeze artists. Needless to say, your office Christmas party has a lot to live up to this year.
