Tres Palms offers men-only 'shopping' day
Gentlemen, if you are having trouble getting motivated to do your holiday shopping, Tres Palms may be able to help.
The Babylon restaurant has convceived a stag event that is relatively short on actual shopping, looooong on eating, drinking and football.
Here’s the schedule:
11 a.m. to noon: Fortify yourself with brunch (entrees range from $9 to $16) and a complimentary Bloody Mary or mimosa.
Noon to 1 p.m.: With the support of your brethren, stroll into Babylon village and buy gifts.
1 to 5 p.m.: Watch the Giants play the Seattle Seahawks and snack on a raw bar, pulled-pork sliders, lobster nachos, baby lamb chops, wings and Buffalo chili. Fire Island Beer will be offering $3 pours of, among other brews, Red Wagon IPA and Frozen Tail Ale, and there will be specials on Bloodys, Margaritas and rum punch.
4 to 8 p.m.: Watch the Jets play the Carolina Panthers (while you continue eating and drinking). Feel free to bring a cigar.
8 p.m.: Go home with your parcels and tell the family you’ve been shopping all day.
