The bad news: One of the East Village’s secret gems, the bocce court at The Standard, has gone into hibernation. The good news: The hotel’s garden has transformed into a winter wonderland complete with Christmas trees and mini yurts.
Hit the Powder at this Pop-Up Fondue Chalet in Williamsburg
Sure, Williamsburg is a long way from the slopes, but this winter you can take part in the city version of après-ski rituals at the Fondue Chalet.
The seasonal pop-up– another establishment from the proprietor of a regular army of food and drink outlets including Diviera Drive (the fantasy yacht club restaurant just down the street), Soho’s Rintintin and Café Select, and LES party den, Happy Ending– opened on Friday, and plenty of guests were ready to get slippy.
