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.
Things to do for October 25, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
This year, we're dressing up as the weekender.
John Varvatos Sale
Up to 70% off the good stuff: Button-down shirts, black
leather jackets and pin-striped suits.
411: Oct 29 to Nov 2, 10am-6pm; Nov 3 and Nov 4, 11am-7pm, 212-725-5400
Helmut Lang and rag & bone
Go from rags to... rag & bone as the label teams with Mr. Lang to offer up cashmere sweaters, trousers and outerwear starting at $115.
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!
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
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. In other words, it's a walk-off. Of course, it's so secret that even ticket-holders won't know the location until four hours before, and that's assuming you can get your HNDS on some TCKTS.
NikeID has a new studio (in Niketown, naturally) for personal consultations, so you can tailor a pair of sneakers to match your personal color scheme. It's your best chance to get a sneaker named after you—other than that late-breaking NBA career.
