Seen & Heard: Quiet Clubbing Party

Stillfried Wien downstairs••• I’ve been working on a series of gift guide posts—more on that after Thanksgiving—which involves popping into stores I haven’t necessarily been to in a while. Stillfried Wien at 40 Walker is such a treat; I really should go more. They’ve opened the downstairs (pictured above), and they’re toward the end of a sale—lots of interesting stuff is still available. Adam nearly got a very special knickknack….

••• “Tiara,” which is what the Marvel TV show “Luke Cage” is going by, is filming in northeast Tribeca on Dec. 2 and 3. From IMDB: “Given superstrength and durability by a sabotaged experiment, a wrongly accused man escapes prison to become a superhero for hire.”

••• I added the Bennett’s cocktail and food menus to the New Kid on the Block post about the new bar.

••• There’s a debate going on in the comments about whether the Landmarks Preservation Commission should be concerned about rooftop additions as seen from on high. It was sparked by my hand-wringing over the topper at 361 Broadway, a.k.a. the Cast Iron House; as you can see below, the addition is highly visible from the street. (This isn’t related to the debate; just pointing it out.)

••• December 12 at Brookfield Place: “New Yorkers of all ages are invited to dance the night away at a free Quiet Clubbing Party that will take place underneath the emanating light of a massive canopy of 650 lanterns in the iconic 10-story, glass-enclosed Winter Garden. Guests will receive a pair of special wireless headphones on which they can adjust the volume and choose between three live DJs with a flip of a switch. Each headset has a color LED that indicates which DJ you are listening to, so you can dance along with those listening to the same DJ as you. The all ages-friendly playlists include Top 40 favorites from the ‘80s, ‘90s, and 2000s, and hip-hop.” RSVP required.

••• John sends word that the Lilac is back in its berth at Pier 25.

Lilac by John••• Excerpted from a press release: “The Seaport District is hosting its annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, December 1 at 6 p.m. at the intersection of Front and Fulton Streets. Photos with Santa from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Seaport Studios [on Fulton] on Dec. 1 only. And in its Visitor Center at 12 Fulton, the South Street Seaport Museum is presenting a one-day holiday installation on Dec. 1 of mid-19th to early-20th century toys, ship models, graphic art and more. Plus, the new Holiday Market on Fulton between Water and Front will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., featuring unique holiday gifts and treats from 10 local merchants, including BrooklynMadeStore (handmade etchings and screen prints); G & G (hats, gloves, scarves); Infinity Lights (DIY lights); It’s Always Christmas in NY (unique ornaments); and Mistura Timepieces (eco-friendly watches).”
