The Weekend Starts Here

This year, we're dressing up as the weekender.

Brewtopia V

Brewtopia V

Described as a "roman orgy of microbrews," Brewtopia is apparently your last chance for Oktober-based revelry. Fifty bucks buys you a whirlwind of hops, along with enough pretzels and beer brats to keep you sated. Toga optional.

The Sixth Ward Opens Up

The Sixth Ward Opens Up

The Sixth Ward brings a taste of Dublin's best beer halls to the LES. Literally. The owner flew in a specialist from the Emerald Isle to make sure their CO2 and nitrogen settings for Guinness were the same as the typical pub in Ireland. Slainte!

Uncle Jack's Steakhouse

Uncle Jack's Steakhouse

He was always our favorite uncle. This North Chelsea steak joint is moving uptown with a brand new prix fixe tasting menu featuring crab cakes, lobster tail, a choice of steak, and an open bar for two and a half hours. Like any marathon, you have to stay hydrated.

A Night of Renegade Fashion

A Night of Renegade Fashion

Part of LVHRD's campaign to eliminate vowels, FSHNDL (short for "fashion duel") gives a team of designers a surprise assignment, and an hour to create a couture ensemble live onstage, while the party rages on around them.

411: More information is available at the
