Seen & Heard: Wizarding Workshop

••• From Torly Kid: “For three Wednesdays in April, young witches and wizards can hone their magic skills with our new Wizarding Workshop series. We’ll make two new crafts each week, practice our spells, and play games under Torly Kid’s giant giraffe print tent. Robes, wands, and costumes are not required, but definitely encouraged! Workshop is recommended for ages 6+.”

••• A tip ‘o the hat to @ConciergeBeca for tweeting that the spa at the Setai Club & Spa Wall Street (left) will give you 15% off a service if you “like” it on Facebook. (Actually, it appears that all you have to do is mention the code “FB-fan.”) The deal is good only through Mar. 31, so hurry up and think of a reason you deserve it.

••• From Groupon: $35 for a four-course prix fixe in Thalassa’s Mezze Lounge. I read somewhere that Groupon prides itself on its writing. Huh. “A special tasting menu devised distinctively for Groupon diners begins Greek excursions with a preliminary course of fresh Maine diver sea scallops, nestled in a kataifi filo dough and adorned with sheep’s milk butter and a kalamata balsamic reduction. A serving of dolmas follows, filled with veal, rice, and a tart avgolemono sauce, proving once again that avgolemono sauce is not just for topping cereal. As difficult as choosing a favorite child or favorite city comptroller, Thalassa challenges Greek gourmands to choose between two mouthwatering main dishes: a tender lamb shank infused with a decadent wine sauce and served alongside lemon potatoes, or a fire-roasted Mediterranean sea bream paired with lemon potatoes and wild steamed greens. Finally, a delicate Valrhona-chocolate dome proposes to blushing taste buds by revealing a honey-suffused morsel of flaky ekmek kataifi adorned with rich cream and chopped pistachios.”

••• From the Dealist: $60 for three 90-minute Bootcamp Republic classes (locally in Rockefeller Park and Battery Park).

••• From OpenTable: $25 for $50 at Smörgås Chef. Fifteen years of being a travel editor and you really learn the keystrokes for characters like å and ö.

••• From Steven Alan: “Edith A. Miller is the new sister company to Robert P. Miller, an American heritage men’s clothing brand. The items are all produced in a factory that has been operating for over six generations of by one continuous family in eastern Pennsylvania. With design inspired by the tradition of active, independent, and thinking American beauties, each tee is made of 100% American grown and spun cotton. These items will be featured in a pop-up shop at our Tribeca store March 24–27, beginning with a launch event on March 24 from 7–9 pm.”

••• From Blackboard Eats: 30% off brunch, lunch, or dinner at the Bailey in FiDi.
