Torn as to do this weekend? Yelp NYC has a few handpicked food and drink destinations, as well as some fun events to add to your calendar.
[Underwest Donuts – 2 Pennsylvania Plaza in Midtown]
It used to be if you wanted to sink your teeth into one of the best donuts in town, you had to trek to a busy car wash on the Westside Highway. Lucky for all of us, Underwest just launched a new location in the shadows of Penn Station (not that Penn Station is any less miserable, but it’s a small victory).
[Augustine – 5 Beekman Street in FiDi]
Keith McNally’s latest stunner breaks ground at the Beekman Hotel. If you’re familiar with any of his other legendary eateries (Balthazar, Minetta Tavern, etc…), then you already know this is money well spent. Date night!
[Nickel & Diner – 1 Howard Street in Soho]
We’re going to go out on a limb and say this is the hippest diner to ever reside within a 100+ year old pagoda. Nickel & Diner is the beautiful-people-watching alternative to your typical slapdash greasy spoon.
[Miracle on 9th Street – 649 E. 9th Street in Alphabet City]
While some may look forward to Cyber Monday all year long, we tear the perforated edges of our boozy Advent Calendar every day until the annual return of Miracle on 9th Street. The seasonal pop-up inside of Mace returns for a third winter, and if you’ve never consumed spiked eggnog out of an old Budweiser can, you’ve yet to live, friendo.
[Laidback Luke + Harvard Bass at Flash Factory – tonight]
Hit Flash Factory to kick off your weekend with Amsterdam (and part time NJ) resident, Laidback Luke along with San Diego’s Harvard Bass. Tickets start at $30.
[Renegade Craft Fair – Saturday and Sunday]
It’s gift giving season, and The Renegade Craft Fair is here to make sure your hip co-worker doesn’t toss your Secret Santa gift straight into the trash. There will also be food + drink, music, and lots of seasonal festivities. Entry is free.
[Letters to Andy Warhol – thru 12/15]
Cadillac and The Andy Warhol Museum present a new global traveling exhibition titled “Letters to Andy Warhol.” The collaborative project between the brand and the cultural institution celebrates Warhol’s legacy through imaginative, co-created content and experiences. Entry is free.
