The Super Bowl is almost here, and with it: the chance to achieve total snacking domination. And while there are plenty of great utility players on your radar (nachos always wear their game face), this might be the year to bring in a ringer. Like a lot of caviar. Which, incidentally, also works well on nachos. Ah, teamwork.
Things to do for January 11, 2017
Your Weekend Calls for Equal Parts Apple Pie Corn Dogs and Boozy Jazz Brunch
Yes, There’s Also Interactive Theater at the WytheBy Ilana Dadras
Batali and Bastianich Are Back at It Again
We’ve got to assume you’ve been to La Sirena—that giant restaurant inside the Maritime Hotel from the Batali and Bastianich crew we dubbed the Italian spot of the year, this time last year. (Places that look like this demand such words.) Well, they’ve just opened a tapas bar inside of the barroom. and it’s where you’ll quell any desires for patatas bravas with sea urchin, lamb ribs with pickled baby eggplant or other Spanish-leaning sustenance on small plates.
It’s a Good Time to Stock Up on Todd Snyder
Why? Because they’ve got all these printed tees, alpaca-silk sweaters and textured cardigans at up to 50% off. That’s why.
New, from the Guy Behind Melt Shop
Roasted steak and salsa verde. Chili-mustard pork belly and Asian pickles with koji mayo. Cold charred chicken with apple-date slaw. This is what happens when the creator of Melt Shop teams up with the creator of Bark Hot Dogs, and it is glorious.
Getting Weird Inside the Wythe
What: An immersive performance called It Comes in Waves.
Wait, What: A show that incorporates theater, island dance and song going on all around you.
Where: The grand ballroom.
Why: You haven’t participated in interactive theater at the Wythe yet, and we want to change that.
Roberta’s, for All Your Pizza and Dancing Needs
All this month and next, Roberta’s tiki bar will be hosting a new party every Friday. This week, it’s where you’ll go for hip-hop, trap, dark wave and a live performance. Next week, it’s where you’ll go for some classic disco and house. Or pizza. You can always still just go for pizza.
Oh, God, It’s an Apple Pie Corn Dog
When Chef Dominique collaborates with anybody, you go check it out. When he joins forces with Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske from Wildair and Contra to create an apple pie corn dog with roasted parsnip ice cream, that’s no exception. Obviously.
A Bottomless Boozy Brunch, with Jazz
It’s Sunday. You want brunch. Specifically, one that involves endless Bloody Marys, frittatas with caramelized onions and golden potatoes, and a live band playing jazz from the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s. You head to Delilah. All is well and good in the world.
