Seen & Heard: Kurt Andersen

••• On DoodleDeals: “$79 for a Body Scrub, Custom Massage, Seaweed Treatment, Shampoo and Conditioning at the Tribeca Spa of Tranquility (a $169 Value).” Seeing as how there’s a new Tribeca Spa of Tranquility deal every week, I’m beginning to think anyone who pays full price there is a fool.

••• On Gilt City: $39 for a “chef’s tasting” dinner (i.e., a set menu) at Macao Trading Co. Bartending classes are also available for $75.

••• While adding January (and beyond) events to the calendar, I noticed a bunch of interesting (or at least noteworthy to somebody) people will be coming to Barnes & Noble Tribeca, including reality-TV costar Whitney Port (Feb. 1); smart person Kurt Andersen (Feb. 15); wine guy Gary Vaynerchuk (Mar. 9); actor and author of a book about oceans Ted Danson (Mar. 15), and gay activist Dan Savage (Mar. 22), for his It Gets Better book—boy, that turned around fast.

••• Trattoria Cinque is cooking up a five-course meal ($100) with a DJ from 11 p.m. on for New Year’s Eve.

••• Downtown Dance Factory‘s adult classes now include Zumba, Rock Ballet, and Pilates-Style Core Strength.
