11/5 News: MaryAnn’s Move

courtesy-antiqueria1• The New York Times goes on a Tribeca binge. There’s a big story about how tenants at Independence Plaza North think that if the building’s owner received tax breaks, they should get rent stabilization. In the Styles section, an article about the trend of getting minimally invasive surgery at what are called “medical spas,” and spends some quality time at Tribeca MedSpa. In the Home section, Tribeca resident Leslie Williams is used as a case study of what happens when a marriage ends right as a renovation is completed. (The apartment sold, which makes me wonder, why agree to participate? There’s nothing shameful about divorce, obviously, but why rehash it? I’m not judging, just asking.) Also in the Home section, there’s info on a sale at Antiqueria (above): “Furniture from the 1930s and ’40s will be up to 70 percent off through Nov. 8 (a set of six dining chairs attributed to Dorothy Draper, originally $12,000, will be $3,600).” The shops is at 129 Duane (west of Church), 212-227-7500.

• Looking for a space to, say, host rehearsals, lead classes or private music lessons? Or just for an office? Joanne Hirkaler, director or operations for Gymboree Play & Music wants everyone know that the new GP&M at 100 Reade has ground-floor rooms of different sizes that it’s interested in subletting on a monthly, semi-annual, or annual basis. For more info call 212-566-2795 or 201-314-7201.

Pantaluna, the new pop-up shop on Washington that we wrote about last weekend, is featured in Time Out New York. But, emails owner Illia Barger, “They printed our wholesale prices, bummer. As it is our mission to make lemonade (or maybe even lemon chiffon pie) out of lemons, we are going to honor the wholesale prices for those that find us through the article until Thanksgiving.” That means miniskirts for $115 and workout pants for $125.

Manhattan User’s Guide spotlights a class on regional Italian pasta—with three pastas and six wines—at NY Vintners (21 Warren, bet. Broadway and Church) this Sunday, 4–6 p.m., $45.

• Tonight at 8 p.m.: Kiva Cafe‘s Thursday Night Reading Salon with $3 mini sandwiches, $5 bottles of beer, and $5 glasses of wine.

• When it comes to an expensive special-occasion dinner with kids, Mommy Poppins says Ninja is worth it: “The food and the theater are better than you will get at your typical theme restaurant.”

• Curbed pokes its nose around the changes happening at 365 Broadway (Franklin/White)—and smells something fishy.
