Now that Nemo has come and gone and the snow is just puddles in the street, it’s time to stop getting food delivered and start venturing out into the eating world again. As luck would have it, there’s plenty of good eating happening this week. If the lingering cold weather has you imagining a vacation south of the border, head over to Brooklyn Brewery from 7:30pm-10pm tonight to learn how to put together a Mexican feast. Make tortillas from scratch, whip up a batch of fresh salsa, and try your hands at some Mexican desserts – all while sipping on quality beer from the brewery itself. Tickets are $5 per person, making this deal even cheaper than a happy hour margarita to nurse your cold weather blues.
If you’re still busy with Fashion Week but need a cookie fix, look out for the free ‘Kookie’ truck today. The cookie, named “The Perfect 10″, is a collaboration between pastry genius Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar and super model Karlie Kloss. They will personally be handing out cookies around Lincoln Center and throughout Manhattan (hopefully in the awesome 80’s outfits that they donned in this video). American Express will be tweeing the truck’s locations throughout the day so be sure to follow #AmexMakeMyDay for details.
Head over to Raymi after work today for happy hour with a twist. Join the cocktail gurus from Dipsology for the Shaken & Stirred: Peruvian Pisco Party. There will be cocktails mixed by Raymi’s resident Pisco expert, alongside hors d’eouvers, and plenty of knowledge about this grape brandy. Forty bucks will get you two hours of eating and drinking while mingling with fellow cocktail lovers. Learn more and purchase tickets here.
Valentine’s Day on your mind? Why wait to celebrate? Treat your date to an intimate late night dinner tonight at the Guns + Butter: Valentine Rendezvous Pop Up. Run by a Jean-Georges protégé, Craig Liekfelt, Guns + Butter is setting up shop at Mehtaphor in TriBeCa. Dinner starts at 11pm, allowing for dessert to linger into the early hours of Valentine’s Day.
