Two ways to host a legendary Super Bowl party: order up a dozen of Crif Dogs’ best creations, including a Sunday-only, off-menu buffalo dog. (Sides included, naturally.) Option #2: have one of the city’s most esteemed taco gods, Tacombi, set up a spread for 10 at your place. Choose wisely.
Things to do for January 31, 2013
The Super Bowl, Oscar Cinema and Freemans
All the weekend that’s fit to print.
Hailing a Livery Cab with Your Phone
You’re having a drink. It starts to rain. Open cabs: no. So you bust out your phone, find a nearby livery cab and hail it through this app. Soon enough, a car comes. You get in. You’re dry. You pay through your card through the app. Another age-old problem: solved.
70% Off Freemans Handsomeness
Freemans. You’ve been known to pine for their suiting. Which makes it extra convenient that some of it’s going for half off this weekend. You can also grab a couple of shirts and sweaters for 70% off. Just in case you’re not ready for the bare-chest-and-suit-jacket look.
Every Oscar-Nominated Short Film
Last year, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore took home animated-short Oscar gold. And to think, you’ve... never even heard of it. But this year, you’ll watch all five of the nominees at once, including the one with Maggie Simpson. She’s long overdue for a statue.
New Brunches Uptown and Downtown
Last time you checked, the weekend’s two days. And here you are, only eating one brunch like a sucker. But not this weekend. This weekend, you head uptown for short rib popovers on Saturday and to the West Village for grits, caviar and Harvey Wallbangers on Sunday. Monday: cholesterol check.
Sausage. Endless Beer. Super Bowl.
Oh right, the Super Bowl. Almost forgot about it. Actually, no, we didn’t. In fact, our compatriots at UD Perks hooked up a subterranean VIP party for you at Loreley. Expect sausage, wings, bottomless mugs of Bitburger, a 10-foot HD projector and, if there’s time, some football.
