THURSDAY VENUE

Terminal 5 Opens

The largest music venue to open in Midtown in a decade debuts tonight with The National—and in the coming months, this three-level, three-bar, 3,000-listener pad will bring in bands you've actually heard of (maybe), like the Shins, Justice and Ween.

Friday
Joseph Abboud Sale
FRIDAY SPORTCOATS

Joseph Abboud Sale

Like it or not, it's nearly sweater time. Tweak your style for the oncoming winter months with suits, sportcoats, trousers and, yes, sweaters by Joseph Abboud—all reduced for the next two days. Because failing to prepare is preparing to...whatever.

SUNDAY INN-ING

New Fall Menu at the Inn LW12

You wouldn't be caught dead eating summer food in mid-autumn—it's the culinary equivalent of white after Labor Day. That's why the Meatpacking District's best Canadian-English gastropub is rolling out a new fall menu this weekend. A glimpse: Fried Chicken with Mash and Gravy, and Classic Poutine with Spiced Pork Belly.

411: 7 Ninth Ave (at Little West 12th), 212-206-0300; brunch menu now served until 5pm on weekends

Monday
Spa Week Begins
MONDAY SPA

Spa Week Begins

We know what you're thinking: Seems like we just had a Spa Week. Then again, it means $50 facials, massages and organic sugar scrubs at more than 100 spas in the city, so who's complaining. (Answer: not us.)

Wednesday
Back Forty Opens
WEDNESDAY FORTY

Back Forty Opens

Named for the area where farm families went to unwind, new East Village tavern Back Forty will feature backyard seating, agrarian tools and greenmarket-style dishes like Red Maine Shrimp & Bacon Beignets, Grass-Fed Beef Burgers and Apple Cider Doughnuts. It'll be just like your childhood...plus a farm theme.

411: 190 Ave B (at 12th St)
