Good news: Sauce & Barrel, a particularly nice pizzeria with a former Eataly and La Sirena chef, just swung open their doors in FiDi.

Yeah, it’s just good news.

You. Someone else who likes sports. Al Bello, Simon Bruty, John Huet, and Walter Iooss Jr. (a favorite photographer of Michael Jordan) will be sharing photos and stories from their storied careers in sports photography.

THE OPENING

What’s Under the McKibbin Lofts

Remember Lit Lounge? That legendary East Village dive? It’s not back, and never will be. Sadness. But a new place from the same people is here, and it’s part-dive, part-cocktail lounge, with concert posters plastered on the stairwell and an antique shop vibe. Their opening party is a good chance to attend their opening party.

Opens Dec 16, Tilt, 248 McKibbin St (between McKibbin Ct and Seigel Ct), Brooklyn

A 23-Year-Old Is Behind This

Us: Hey, here’s an attractive upscale Mexican-ish spot in the West Village.
You: What do you mean, Mexican-ish?
Us: Grilled lamb lollipops dipped in chocolate-habanero sauce and topped with gold dust. That sort of thing.
You: Got any pics?
Us: We do, actually.

It’s Back Again. For “Gifts.”
THE POP-UP FLEA

It’s Back Again. For “Gifts.”

Hand-woven leather slides. Brooklyn-made candles. Some handsomely minimal raingear. Marlon Brando-approved leather jackets. It’s true: Pop-Up Flea is back for all your holiday shopping needs, from about 80% of our approved labels. It’s a solid batting average.

Ilana Dadras cannot discern between situations in which sarcasm is and is not appropriate. Her favorite things include mezcal cocktails, Big Sur and writing about herself in the third person.
