The Williamsburg Pampering Stroll
While not a certainty, we’d say there’s a high probability that pampering, shopping and brunch are on your lady’s (or mama’s) list of interests. So indulge her.
Get her a little nail tune-up. Treat her to a tasty repast at a hot new Williamsburg resto. Buy her a trinket, maybe.
She’ll thank you, we promise.
If you’ve not sat in a massage chair next to your lady while a team of professionals tend to your respective tootsies, you, sir, are missing out. Kick it off at Primp and Polish on Grand St. — she’ll appreciate you joining in on her ritual, you’ll appreciate the aforementioned massage chair and having your dogs resurrected from their sorry winter state.
Right around the corner from P&P you’ll find Manila Social Club, the new permanent digs of Bjorn Dela Cruz’s celebrated pop-up supper clubs. Filipino-inspired grub and a helluva brunch menu — last one to the mango souffle pancake ala mode is, well, bummed.
A casual stroll down the main drag of Bedford lands you at jewelry and curio emporium Catbird. Long story short, the kind of shop ladies will be impressed you know about. The key here: let her peruse. Chances are she’ll see something she likes but not commit. So when you leave, claim you forgot something at the restaurant. And go back and buy that bauble.
