The Weekneder

Momofuku Cookies and Mimosas for the Kids

The weekend is trying to get on the naughty list.

Thursday
Christmas Steaks at Bohemian
Beef Tips

Christmas Steaks at Bohemian

It's the most cherished Japanese Christmas tradition of all: when the kids aren't looking, parents put a bunch of 20-ounce Washu beef sirloin steaks in the fridge. They let them age for 28 days, at which point a costumed man travels from table to table delivering them. In gratitude, the kids give him cash.

Serves 2-3 people, Dec 24-25, Bohemian, 57 Great Jones St

Friday
Chinese Food, Movies and Booze
Alternative

Chinese Food, Movies and Booze

Let's say there's something standing between you and celebrating Christmas—cancelled flights, Judaism, whatever. There's room at the 92nd Street Y Tribeca, with its all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet and screenings of Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles. And, of course, the nondenominational pleasures of the bar.

$25/advance ($30/door), Dec 25, 2pm, 92Ytribeca, 200 Hudson St, 212-601-1000

Rogan 50% Off Sale

The dark denim gurus at Rogan are taking half off everything in their Bowery showroom. We want to be clear that although you pay half price, you get the whole item. For example, a whole pair of modern or classic jeans, or a whole V-neck cardigan. Sometimes we have to talk our way through these things.

Rogan, 330 Bowery (at Bond), 646-827-7567

Saturday
Free Bottomless Mimosas, for the Kids
Feel-Good Boozing

Free Bottomless Mimosas, for the Kids

The opportunity to drink for a good cause doesn't come up often. Okay, yes it does, but brunch spots Double Crown and Public will hook you up with unlimited free mimosas if you donate an unwrapped children's book or toy. It reminds us of that part in Goodnight Moon where the bunny enjoys a few Bloody Marys, drunk-dials Paddington Bear and regrets it the next day.

11am-3:30pm, Public, 210 Elizabeth St, 212-343-7011; Double Crown, 316 Bowery, 212-254-0350

Sunday
40% Off at BBlessing
Sale-ing II

40% Off at BBlessing

Just in time, the Lower East Side's dimly lit purveyor of tailored handsomeness is taking 40 percent off its fall stock, with quality labels like Patrik Ervell, Opening Ceremony, Krane and C. Chauchat handmade neckties. We say "just in time" because you've got that thing coming up and you should…look good when you're at that thing.

BBlessing, 181 Orchard St (near Stanton), 212-378-8005

Momofuku Ships Cookies
Cookie Monsters

Momofuku Ships Cookies

In an unprecedented display of baker's hubris, Momofuku Milk Bar launches its shipping service. They'll ship cookies, pies and cakes, including their signature "compost cookies" and "crack pie," all over the country via FedEx. Suddenly, their stated ambition of putting a carrot cake on the moon by 2020 doesn't seem so ridiculous.

Momofuku Milk Bar, 207 Second Ave (at 13th St), order online here
