Oscar Parties

23-Feb-2008 by

If you haven't gotten your gown or written your speech yet, fear not! There are plenty of places to watch the Oscars and have a great time. Here are a few in New York.

Joe's Pub at the Public Theater $20

Times: Tomorrow 7pm.

  • Address: 425 Lafayette St between Astor Pl and E 4th St East Village
  • Phone: 212-539-8778
  • Travel: Subway: N, R, W to 8th St–NYU; 6 to Astor Pl 
  • Website: joespub.com
  •  Another option is the Oscar party at Time Warner Center's Landmarc. Marc Murphy's classy bistro is putting two flat screen TVs in its private dinning room and offering a four-course tasting menu (plus dessert) designed to last the length of the show. In the works are classics like steak-tartare crostini, potato-leek soup with caviar whipped cream and beef wellington with perigourdine sauce and asparagus. One bottle of champagne per twosome is also part of the deal (7:45 PM; $80 per person; 212-823-6123).

     Amost any pub with a television will be watching too. Good thing football season has ended! My speech is almost ready...
