Men will go to extraordinary lengths to impress a lady — sometimes they swim, sometimes they sink. The surefire way to err on the side of the former? Be a man with a plan. And we, fine sir, have got that plan sorted. Here’s your Friday night.
It’s Fall, meaning the forecast is meaningless. Make like a Webelo and Always Be Prepared. This little number has you covered. It’s windproof, corrosion-proof and “you look like an ass struggling with your umbrella”-proof. Bonus: it connects to your phone via bluetooth so you’ll never leave it behind. Check it out.
Eat Your Heart Out
New to NoMad, La Pecora Bianca is the stuff date-night excellence is made of. It’s bright and comfortable, good for having a chat or sharing a laugh. And the cuisine: bona fide. From restaurateur Mark Barak and presided over by Chef Simone Bonelli, expect lovely Italian fare from pasture-raised meats to seasonal, local vegetables to in-house pressed pasta — and a very handsome list of Negronis. Reservations this way.
It’s one thing to do your planning. It’s downright swoon-worthy when that plan that also does good. Poverty-fighting charity Robin Hood is throwing a private concert in the very stunning Gotham Hall. The evening will feature the ever-magnetic soul stylings of Aloe Blacc with DJ duo The Knocks turning things up a notch later in the night. All proceeds from the affair go to help your NY neighbors in need. And nothing says "respectable gent" quite like supporting the community. Get your tickets here.
