Scotch and cigars. They go together like... well, like drinking and smoking. And yet, here we are in 2017 and still no vending machines spitting out hand-rolled cigars infused with 12-year-old Macallan on every corner. Until that situation is fixed and America is truly great again, turn your attention to Perks, where you’ll find some along with a healthy discount.
Things to do for January 25, 2017
Raw-Cookie-Dough-Filled Waffle Cone, Anyone?
Pizza Hollandaise and Convincing Mia Wallaces Are Also in the CardsBy Ilana Dadras
This Cadet Is Not Expensive. Not Expensive at All.
It’s like some alternate universe in which all the flannel button-downs, ribbed wool-cashmere sweaters, sleek gray admiral coats and other military-influenced menswear you know Cadet is good for are way less than they should be. Like, up to 90% less.
Calling All Pulp Fiction Enthusiasts
Reasons to spend your evening here: a cover band is going to perform the Pulp Fiction soundtrack in its entirety. There will be a twist contest. You’re bound to find a couple attendees dressed like Mia Wallace. Feels like enough reasons.
For Brunch That’s More Italian Than Not
That Italian spot in the William Vale hotel is launching brunch, and it’s going to be damn good. Think waffles, but polenta waffles with orange-mulberry syrup and mascarpone. Think eggs benedict, just with pepperoni Sicilian bread and pizza hollandaise. Think Bloody Marys, but with salsa picante and fennel salt. Okay, that’s enough thinking about breakfast items for the time being.
There Are Many Reasons to Attend This Dinner
Four chefs hailing from spots like Acme, Public and the Musket Room will be joining forces for a five-course dinner at Saxon + Parole—each chef will handle a course, then they’ll collaborate on your main and dessert. Should you need further convincing, some of the proceeds will be going to a charity dedicated to sustainable agriculture and the like.
Where Stoner and Your Eight-Year-Old Self’s Dreams Collide
It’s called Dō, and it’s exactly what you think it is. That is, if you think it’s a place for indulging in harmless raw cookie dough piled into waffle cones, half-baked into brownies or frozen into cookie form.
