New York Weekend Roundup: Music, Donuts, And Ice Skating

While New Yorkers are enjoying another weekend of weather descending into Fall’s cooler climates, some of the best in food options and happenings have returned to the city to ready New Yorkers for the chilly season. Here are some of our favorite happenings from over the weekend.

Chef’s Club Counter Gets A New Tennant


Fresh off the buzz of his Greenpoint donut shop opening, former wd~50 chef Wylie Dufresne’s Du’s Donuts will be making its way to Manhattan at the food counter. Du’s Donuts has drawn a ton of buzz in the Brooklyn food scene lately for creative cake donut flavors like Mexican Hot Chocolate, Brown Butter Key Lime, and Espresso Cardamom. Visitors this weekend had access to the newly minted mini donuts to hit the ever-rotating menu. Chef’s Club Counter is a new project from the rotating-guest chefs program at Chef’s Club down the street. Previous tenants have included stalwarts like Oddfellow’s ice cream and Eggslut breakfast sandwiches.

Horse Meat Disco


One of Britain’s favorite events of funk and rock music has come to Williamsburg again with Brooklynites coming out from the hip bars and restaurants of the scene to hear the festival’s grooves. Output in Williamsburg housed DJ Ron Like Hell and Baron Hawk Pointier and Father Figure for the event.


The Rockefeller Ice Skating Rink Opens!


It’s that time of year again, to dust off the ice skates and head to midtown. The ice skating rink in Rockefeller Plaza has opened to give skaters an early start at the holiday season this October. Skates are available to rent or to bring your own from home. October also marks one of the best times to go skating at the plaza before the waves of tourists and travelers swarm the photographic area for family portraits to face your icy resolve. Not to mention, by getting out there in October fewer people will see you falling down.
