Beloved Korean BBQ spot Cote is now accepting email orders for Steak Care Packages. ($180 gets you four one-pound steaks, along with their signature salt blend, ssamjang, and multiple pints of banchan. All orders need to be picked up at their Flatiron location from 12-6.) If you’re baking for fun (or out of boredom), Maman’s cookie dough to-go-kits come in oatmeal, triple chocolate, or nutty chocolate chip. World’s Best Bar Dante is now a bar-on-the-go, delivering an impressive variety of cocktails, from their signature negroni to a golden sbagliato to even a bloody Mary. Each costs $11: $10 to Dante, and $1 to God’s Love We Deliver. If you and your quarantine crew want to get (responsibly) rowdy, they even offer bottle service for $85.
Pre shelter in place, pre self-isolation, pre COVID-19, I had never attended a drag show. Sure, the Just a girl who loves Cats and Books shirt and by the same token and thought of attending one always sounded like a raucously fun time. But when it came down to it, the concept of getting up, going out, and watching something that starts past 9 p.m. had always seemed slightly less appealing. But during my period of self-isolation, I was looking to step out of my comfort zone (while still remaining firmly in the comfort zone of my bedroom), so I mustered up the energy to attend the drag show Oops!, which kicked off a little after 10 p.m. on Wednesday. For the first time, I saw the boisterous lip-synching for myself! The outrageous, human disco-ball looks! The buoyant wigs! Yes, it was a bizarre blast, and thanks to the wonderful universe of the World Wide Web, I was able to take it all in without even leaving my front door. Shop online, and shop online some more! Order some olive oil from Sant Ambroeus, a sweatshirt from The Four Horseman, a mug from Frankel’s, a tote from Russ & Daughters. Better yet, a cookbook from Red Rooster, Cosme or, for the plant-based eaters among us, Dirt Candy—with all this cooking at home, it’s always nice to have some new inspiration.
