The Weekly Roundup: Lots of Beer and Cheese, Dominique Ansel Bakery News and Waiters Get a Raise.


  • Tea Tuesdays: The Chemis-Tea Of Pouring The Perfect English-Style Cuppa: In 1946, George Orwell wrote an essay in which he claimed to have cracked the code to putting together the perfect cup of tea with milk. But taste preferences can be very individual, so his solution may not be your ideal brew.
  • Specialty Glassware As the New Garnish: Until recently, drinkware has been a largely predictable affair. But amidst the cocktail renaissance, bars are using drinking vessels—be it a vintage coupe, a light bulb or a bespoke tiki mug—to alter the drinker's expectations. 
  • Your Beer and Cheese Pairing Cheat Sheet:  When it comes to beer and cheese, some matches turn out tastier than others.  A few basic guidelines can help guide your choices. The general principle for pairing beer and cheese is the general principle for pairing, period.


  • The 10 Best Happy Hours With Food In NYC: The Mermaid Empire is abundant with good deals on great food, and the happy hour deals at all three of its locations are no exception. Happy hour generally runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., though it's an all-night deal on Mondays and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekends in the East and Greenwich Villages.
  • Korean Restaurant and Jazz Club Closing in Greenwich Village: Choga, a Korean restaurant and jazz club at 145 Bleecker St., is shutting down because the landlord would not renew the venue's lease, and because club has failed to turn a profit for the past few years

  • The 10 Best Bagel Sandwiches In NYC: Black Seed's eensy bagels wowed us when they debuted last year (and we're not easily impressed). And while they serve up a slew of praiseworthy sandwiches—Two Eggs, Beet Cured Salmon, and Ricotta, to name a few—our favorite is the spectacular Sable.

  • Classic Chinatown Dive Winnie's Is Closing: Located at 104 Bayard Street, Winnie's has been serving up cheap drinks in a divey atmosphere for nearly three decades—try their Hawaiian Punch, which features rum, vodka, amaretto almond liqueur, creme de bananes, orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine.
