Things to do for February 25, 2010

The Weekender

Midnight Sushi, Red Velvet Ice Cream and Champagne Madness

The weekend is seeking shelter and sidecars.

Bagatelle Turns Two
FRENCH CONNECTION

Bagatelle Turns Two

The over-the-top, damn-it-all bastion of champagne-drenched Euro madness is celebrating the fact that its golden anniversary is only 48 years away. You'll snack on delicacies like Gnocchi With Black Truffle Pesto and rub shoulders with French celebrities (who count as two-thirds of a real celebrity).

Feb 26, 7:30pm-1am, Bagatelle, 409 W 13th St (near Ninth Ave), 212-675-2400

70% Off Rogan
SALE-ING

70% Off Rogan

It's cold, windy and skating the line between brutal snow and brutal rain. In other news, Rogan is taking 70% off fall and winter merchandise like motorcycle jackets and Japanese denim jeans. Which just so happen to look extra tough in driving, freezing rain.

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

UO Launches Late-Night Sushi
MIDNIGHT RUN

UO Launches Late-Night Sushi

As we suspected, this hidden sushi spot's daytime service turned out to be just a front for...midnight sushi dealing. Today, UO commences after-hours, omakase-style sushi service, which you'll wash down with copious doses of sake. It's legal, but you can pretend it's not...

Midnight-2am, Sushi UO, 151 Rivington St (near Clinton), 2nd floor, 212-677-5470

Robert Geller Pop-Up Shop
SALE-ING II

Robert Geller Pop-Up Shop

While you've been tempted by Robert Geller's dark, military-inspired duds, you've never really dabbled. Now the German designer is taking up temporary residence in Assembly New York's LES quarters to hawk double-breasted wool cardigans, velveteen cadet jackets and the rest of the line. Your time to dabble is now.

Momofuku Launches Red Velvet Soft-Serve
Cake Walk

Momofuku Launches Red Velvet Soft-Serve

The cake-to-ice-cream transition brings its share of perils. So, after much deliberation, Momofuku Milk Bar unveils Red Velvet in soft-serve ice cream form, along with Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting flavors. Only time will tell if this is a good idea or a really, really fantastic idea.

Bobo Begins Sunday Sessions
CHAMBER MUSIC

Bobo Begins Sunday Sessions

The candlelit townhouse restaurant is dedicating its exposed-brick, fireplaced den to live music on the last Sunday of every month. You'll signal for some Wagyu Brisket and a Maker's sour and settle in for laid-back sounds from local emerging troubadours. You'd do the same if you had a candlelit townhouse restaurant (all in good time).

Sundays, doors at 7pm, Bobo, 181 W 10th St (near Seventh Ave), 212-488-2626
