The Real Cost of New Year’s Eve Dining

Eating out on New Year’s Eve is expensive. Restaurants issue set menus by fiat and hike their prices. The markups are partly an intangible emotional play: you’re paying more because you and your significant other don’t want to be alone when the clock strike’s midnight.

But you’re also paying more because you’re getting more.  Restaurants on New Year’s like to throw in live bands, free champagne and luxury ingredients into your (mandatory) tasting menu-extravaganzas.

The Fendi Baby Stroller

Oh my – how did we survive parenthood before the Fendi baby stroller?  Seriously?!?

Fendi is really diving into the children’s fashion world full force! After first partnering with Simonetta for a kids’ fashion line, they have now partnered with Italian stroller company Inglesina to release a luxury stroller.

The new Fendi stroller will feature the Fendi logo as well as their signature folor palette of cream, mahogany and brown. It will be released accompanied by a matching foot muff and baby carrier. No word yet on the weight or cost of this stroller, but from the looks of it, we can expect an umbrella fold, making it a good candidate for traveling.  But then again, if you have to ask how much this thing cost, you probably can’t afford it anyways.  (just saying)

The line will be sold in select stores worldwide starting in 2012.

Spinach Sauteed with Garlic, Figs, and Honey

Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, Emeril’s Food of Love Productions 2008

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced garlic
  • 1/4 cup sliced dried figs
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 pound baby spinach
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons honey

Directions

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and, when hot, add the garlic and cook until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds. Add the figs and chicken stock and cook until stock is nearly completely reduced, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with the salt and pepper and drizzle with the honey just before serving.

That’s All, Folks: Filene’s Is Closing for Good on Thursday

 

When Filene’s Basement first announced they’d be shuttering all stores, the liquidation sale was expected to run through January. However, Mizhattan stopped by the Union Square store and found out that they’ll be closing for good this Thursday. As expected, everything is now big-time on sale.

If you’re looking for a really good reason to get married, here it is: The wedding gowns are now only $39. Last week, we learned that they were going for $59, but they’ve now been reduced to 20 bucks cheaper. As for the selection, Mizhattan says that in the Union Square store, there are only about two racks left.

As for the rest of it, merchandise is marked down between 60% to 70% off. She reports that the entire shoe section is 70% off, but that it’s already been totally picked through. Designer ready to wear is also barren, but denim, on the other hand, is still plentiful—and it’s all 60% off. Looking for loungewear, lingerie, and socks? All of that can be had for under $5. She also found out that it’s possible things could get cheaper, as one of the employees said “to check back this Thursday” for more markdowns.

How to Shop for Free this week

I think I’m going to start a new tradition in my house.  Let’s do Christmas after Christmas.  Say maybe January after I’m done buying everything at 50-60% off?  Or better yet…FREE?

Here is your round up of all the freebies available this week.  Remember, if you don’t need the item, consider picking some up for your Couponing for a Cause Donation.
