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.
Things to do for December 07, 2016
Brunching in the Met Opera House Is Happening This Weekend
As Is Champagne Happy Hour and Live Home AloneBy Ilana Dadras
EFM Is Here for a Spell
Indeed. EFM (Engineered for Motion), the label known for incorporating high-performance materials into sharp-looking menswear, is having their first-ever pop-up shop down in SoHo, with their fall/winter 2016 collection of blazers, trousers, jackets and everything else up for grabs. They’ll also be throwing a series of workouts, parties and events. That’d be the “motion” part.
Bless This Champagne Happy Hour
The ever-so-hospitable folk at Cherche Midi are launching a champagne happy hour. It’s where you and yours might enjoy glasses of champagne, champagne cocktails involving chestnut honey and rosemary syrup, and complimentary edibles like fried stuffed olives and goat cheese flatbreads. It’s a positively delighted hour.
An Alpine Lodge atop the Dream Midtown
A snowcapped door leading into an après-ski alpine lounge with fur throws, warm Swedish glogg (it’s... very heavy), cast-iron skillet cookies and baked brie with figs. Actual skiing not included.
You’ll Feel Good About Shopping Here
A generous-feeling you + this nicely curated selection of eco-friendly and ethical brands with bags, jewelry, shoes, athletic wear and so many other giftable items from the Pop Up Flea team = a most excellent way to pass the afternoon.
Of Course This Involves a Recital
This type of intel makes you think, “Why haven’t we always been able to enjoy a two-course Sunday brunch in the Metropolitan Opera House while also enjoying a musical performance by a young artist?” Because the intel is that that’s a possibility now.
Calling All Home Alone Fans
Here’s a live performance of Home Alone 2 that’s also a group drinking game in which you’ll all collectively sip your beverages each time certain words are said. Classic drinking game.
