Things to do for October 29, 2009

The Weekender

Dumpling Burlesque, Personal Kegs and Boozy Turkey

The weekend makes love out of nothing at all.

Thursday
YSL 80% Off at Friends and Family
SALE-ING

YSL 80% Off at Friends and Family

The racks may be skewed toward the female, but the discerning homme will find jackets, pants and a stockpile of outerwear with miniscule price tags. And you may even be forced to mingle with all those ladies, but we know you can handle it. Your winter wardrobe depends on it.

Today 8am–8pm, Friday 8am–2pm, Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 W. 18th St, 4th floor

Friday
Dinner at the Bon Bon
BOOM TO BON

Dinner at the Bon Bon

After a month masquerading as the Boom Boom Room, the Standard Hotel's 18th-floor shag pad has a brand new name and accompanying sweetness. The Bon Bon is welcoming you to five hours of dinner, after which they'll revert to the kind of retro merrymaking you know and love. Because a party, by any other name, is just as sweet.

4pm-9pm, Standard Hotel, 848 Washington St, 18th floor, 212-645-7600

Oak Sale 60% off
SALE-ING II

Oak Sale 60% off

We approach the term "bargain basement" with a tinge of trepidation. Not so when that basement belongs to Oak, and the bargains include apparel and shoes from Opening Ceremony, Diesel and Acne. It's like your parents' basement without the Ping-Pong table but with better denim.

Through Sunday, Oak, 28 Bond St, 212-677-1293

Saturday
The Keg Trend Continues
POST PORK

The Keg Trend Continues

First Superdive, then the Standard Beer Garden and now… the Yard. The personal keg is rolling into Chelsea, with a Halloween kick-off in the former home of Porky's. If encouraging trends is wrong, we don't want to be right.

Opens Saturday, The Yard, 55 W. 21st St, 212-675-8007

Wild Turkey Wild Turkey
BOOZE BIRD

Wild Turkey Wild Turkey

In addition to a medicinal beverage, it turns out the wild turkey is an animal too. But that doesn't mean you can't combine the two: Brooklyn Kitchen's version comes packed with country sausage and injected with brine made from actual Wild Turkey bourbon. You wouldn't want to spoil the holiday with a bottom-shelf bird.

Sunday
Dim Sum Burlesque Show
CHOW FUN

Dim Sum Burlesque Show

In the history of pairings, soul food and Sichuan get a curious footnote. But throw in a burlesque show, and there's some perverse genius. Apparently we're not alone in the thinking, because advanced tickets to Chow Bar's inaugural show sold out. You can still buy tickets for next week, or just snag a seat at the bar. West Villagers rejoice… there will be torch singers.

$10, Sunday, 9pm, Chow Bar, 230 W. 4th St, 212-633-2212
