Now that the links have thawed, spring is springing, and you can venture outside without a parka over your parka, Perks is bringing you an invite and $25 credit to McBirdie, an online golf shopping club launching in late March with golfing gear on sale for up to 70% off. Start daydreaming, people.
Things to do for March 11, 2010
Atlantic City, Caviar on Caviar and the Two Coreys
The weekend has contracted March Madness.
Four-Course Caviar at Petrossian
The caviar gurus at Petrossian are celebrating their 25th year in the business with a four-course prix fixe (for an unusually friendly $90) with the precious roe worked into everything from the appetizers to the coffee. Thus taking things right to the limit of too much of a good thing.
Steven Alan's Deal of Deals
The plaid capital of New York has been marking down fall/winter gear up to 75% off since November, but they just added an extra 25% on top of whatever's already marked down, leading to the rare spectacle of the $40 button-down, along with backup items from Rag & Bone, Engineered Garments and Quoddy Boots—in case all that snow tries to stage a comeback.
Stockings and Bonds Poker Tournament
This weekend-long Atlantic City tournament is tempting New Yorkers south with $500 buy-ins, in-game massages, a players-only after-party and a seat at the World Series of Poker for whoever wins. (Also, a sack full of money.) Just think of it as your second performance-based bonus.
The Birth of Rock Room NY
Starting this weekend, if you venture behind the formerly mild-mannered Bar Baresco, you'll find a brand-new marble-hued mini-club, packed with whiskey bottles, mini-pizzas and the owner's model friends. In other words, no one will be here for the wine.
The Lost Boys at the Tribeca Grand
In honor of the dearly departed Mr. Haim, the Tribeca Grand is screening his finest work: the two-Corey'd vampire hair-spray epic, Lost Boys. Bring your Wayfarers and, if you've got it, some holy water. Feldman, wherever you are, stay safe...
In the interest of recreating every last detail from your childhood as a Coney Island carnie, the East Village pastry makers have whipped up an Italian ice with peanut butter and grape jelly. The only downside: you can't cut off the crusts.
