Pearl & Ash is the perfect blind-date spot: you don't know anything about your date's taste preferences, so why not go somewhere that lets you make it into whatever you want it to be? Wine bar, cocktail bar, tapas bar...etc. etc.

Slips and camisoles, shape-wear and swimsuits, push-ups and bralets. Cosabella’s collections are as colorful as their celebrity endorsements (spotted: Megan Fox in the Molded Bra), so you can match your underwear to your mood (which hopefully isn’t always black). This is lingerie that you can whip out anytime, not just on Valentine's Day.

This Midtown Mediterranean restaurant has opened a new location in Soho. With Mango Margaritas on the rocks ($6) and tapas and mezes like Smoked Eggplant with Garlic Yoghurt ($9) and Portuguese Fried Calamari with Soujouk & Peppers ($15), we're glad they made the trek downtown.

I hate to admit it, but occasionally the contents of my lingerie drawer has an average age of at least one, if not two, presidential terms. I have not yet been to the Cosabella sample sale in Soho, but I have heard that lingerie and loungewear is up to 60% off. 

Perhaps it is time to show my birthday suit some kindness with Cosabella's sexy thongs, lacy chemises, or underwire bras, all at bargain prices of $13-$80. Ends Tuesday, so I had best get a move on.

Almost as exciting as Gatsby's parties themselves are the outfits--the beaded, sequined, feathered outfits. Prada will be hosting an exhibition of the costumes used in the film from May 1st-12th. The show will feature flapper dresses, hats, vintage kitten heels, and sparkly jewelry, as well as sketches and designs from Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin.

Hot chocolate can too often be overwhelmingly rich. For those who aren't chocolate-obsessed, the white-chocolate based Bianca hot cocoa ($5) at Vosges Haute Chocolat will toy with your taste buds without torturing them. Scented with lavender flowers and a hint of Meyer lemon for a citrus after-taste, the subtleties of this vanilla-flavored white chocolate drink are enticing and just perfectly sweet.

If you are the plan-ahead type, get to Bundle so that your little munchkin can appear in full holiday regalia this season.  My pick: this potentially adorable Angel Dear candy-cane striped onesie ($51/buy now). If you hurry, maybe you can make it work for Halloween, too.

Well, chocolate, of course, according to the Wall Street Journal. So if you want to be the most popular kid on the block, invite at least nine of your friends to a chocolate tasting at MarieBelle in Soho ($65 per person). You no doubt will learn all about chocolate (regions, grades, and so on) but best of all you get to eat chocolate for an entire evening. Details here
