Let’s Imbibe and Write Postcards to—Air Quotes—the President

Combining alcohol with emotions is generally not a great tack. Combining hot toddies, mulled wine and a beer garden with your emotions about Trump, and throwing in some prestamped postcards on which to express those feelings—that’s sound Wednesday night policy.

Mar 15, 4-10pm, no cover, The Well, 272 Meserole St (between Waterbury and Bushwick), Brooklyn, 347-338-3612

Thursday
Where Handsome Satchels Roam Nearly Free
THE LEATHER

Where Handsome Satchels Roam Nearly Free

Rougly nine out of 10 people who know you and want you to have incredibly handsome new travel bags agree: they should be Ghurkas. As luck would have it, you can pick one up for up to 75% off in Chelsea this weekend. At last, an excuse to plan your travel entirely based around the resplendence of your luggage.

Mar 15-17, 9am-6:30pm; Mar 18, 9am-5pm; Ghurka sample sale at Soiffer Haskin, 317 W 33rd St (at 8th), 917-562-2140

THE LUSHEST OF OPENINGS

A Plant-Filled Beauty From the Kiki’s Team

The folks responsible for Kiki’s, everyone’s low-key favorite dinner spot on the LES, have struck again. This strike is Monroe, a jungle-like space for Spanish, Italian and French forms of Mediterranean. As you’d hope, seafood paella, cacio e pepe and escargot are part of the deal.

Now open, Monroe, 49 Monroe St (between Pike and Market)

Saturday

THE OPENING

Say What’s Up to the New Carhartt WIP Flagship

Carhartt WIP is larger now. Which, in this case, means more space for neon, steel, artist-collab graphic tees and a near perfection of the workwear/streetwear hybrid form. Look for the denim coaches jacket if you’re trying to stay ahead of things this season.

Sunday
Such Hot Chicken
THE POP-UP

Such Hot Chicken

Not enough hot chicken in New York. Uncool. For one wonderful night, though, the Vic’s and Cookshop teams are using everything they learned on a recent Nashville trip to bring a three-spice-level menu of the stuff next door to Vic’s. “Crazy crazy hot” is one of the options. Getting sides of pimento mac-and-cheese and banana/Nilla wafer pudding is less optional.

Mar 19, noon-8pm, $15, next door to Vic’s, 33 Great Jones St (between Bowery and Lafayette), 212-253-5700
