There's always a reason to celebrate—like the one-year anniversary of a restaurant, for instance. To commemorate this event at Michelin-starred Rouge Tomate, you can raise a glass of bubbly on us... Salut.
Things to do for October 22, 2009
Tequila Brunch, S'more Bonfires and Kobe at the Deli
The weekend never has its bonus cut.
75% Off John Varvatos
No stranger to the sample sale, the world's chief purveyor of rock-and-roll-inspired menswear is dropping three-quarters off the price of its sweaters and leather jackets. Across the city, there are even more coats and suiting at the first-ever JV warehouse sale. It's almost too much. Almost.
Homegrown Kobe Hits City Delis
While the Japanese continue to worship American pop culture, we've quietly been coveting their sliced meat.

Yes, friends, the Asian beer gauntlet has officially been laid.
Up to 80% Off Duckie Brown
When hand-tailored suits are going for 300 bucks, it either means they fell off a truck or sample sale. When it's the latter, and designed by a mold-breaking, avian-named duo known for their bold colors and atypical cuts, it's a done deal. You had us at wax pea coat.

The East Village tequila temple launches brunch service this Sunday, and you can expect south of the border specialties like El Ranchero (an unholy pairing of hanger steak, pork belly and plantains) along with a laundry list of 'quila-based cocktails and punches. Because if there is one thing missing from the modern brunch, it is the flavor of pure agave…
Football and S'mores at Frying Pan
You no longer have to choose between camping, boating or watching sports, because the city's premier docked party barge is extending its run at Chelsea Piers, and they're adding a communal bonfire and Monday Night Football projected on a12-foot screen. Grahams, chocolate and marshmallow go for three bucks—a mere pittance to get that upstate feeling on a barge on the west side.
