When the temperature dips, our thoughts turn to the comfort of food—and the warmth of a good man. And at JR’s this week, there are plenty of hot studs available to the highest bidders. Read on for the delicious details.
Dinner & A Movie at Ferré
Thursday, February 7 (and every weekday), 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Unless you’re going to Luby’s with your grandma, there’s not much reason to eat dinner this early. But when it’s food from Ferré in West Village, it’s worth leaving work a little early and beating the crowds. Plus, they’ll even throw in a free movie ticket good at the Magnolia Theater next door. Try getting that with a Lu Ann Platter.
$25.95 for 3 courses and movie ticket

Cooking Class at Farmer’s Market
Saturday, February 9, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. (doors open at 11 a.m.)
Learn to cook fabulous dishes from some of the hottest local chefs. This week features Scott Gottlich of Bijoux preparing some of his favorite dishes inspired by fresh produce from the Farmer’s Market. It’ll be more enjoyable than a singing cumquat on roller skates.

5th Annual Gay Bachelor Auction
Sunday, February 10, 4 – 8 p.m.
Love for sale. Appetizing young love for sale. Join Edna Jean Robinson as she hosts an evening to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Bid on a date package with a sexy man and don’t go to jail on prostitution charges. It’s a win-win for everyone, really. And in case you don’t win the bachelor of your choice, there are other prizes that aren’t made of human flesh.

Pop Goes the Easel Art Exhibit
Sunday, February 10, 7 – 10 p.m.
Not since Campbell’s Soup and Marilyn Monroe adorned canvases in all their Technicolor glory has pop art been more fun. Be among the first to view the new collection from artist Clint Mordecai at the Ivy Lounge. And we promise, despite the title of the exhibit, there won’t be any monkeys chasing rodents around mulberry bushes getting in the way of the festivities. Free Pama Liqueur Martinis for the first hour.
