Seen & Heard: Party at Da Mikele!

Time for a new sign!

••• The Prosecco ought to be flowing at Da Mikele tonight: The restaurant, which opened in November finally got its liquor license today. Also, it’s having a “grand opening” party on April 4 (6–9 p.m.). Want to attend? Email

••• On Mar. 31, City Winery will host a concert to benefit Japan earthquake relief. Performing: Rachael Yamagata, Tift Merritt, Marshall Crenshaw, Dar Williams, and Lucy Wainwright, among others.

••• Gilt City has a deal for Sweet Lily, and Groupon has a deal for Tribeca Spa of Tranquility. I think I’m going to take a break from passing on these deals for a while. If I see one that’s spectacular, then I reserve the right to mention it. But (a) there are too many, especially spa ones; and (b) if local businesses want to target locals, they should come to mama, you know what I mean? Should anyone feel strongly otherwise, email me at and maybe I’ll reconsider. Readers come first (but you may want to include in ideas for additional streams in your email).

••• Curious what Damon Dash’s vintage-clothing shop, Local 172 Trading Post, will be selling? Here’s a taste. (It’s everything I word in the 80s!) The store opens tomorrow at noon; I’ll be the one with the camera.
