Meatpacking: Cold weather is also a fine excuse to ice skate, and to indulge in wintry food to match. Lucky for us, The Standard Hotel has combined the two into an après skate pairing: For $24, one can enjoy a powdered-sugar crêpe and a flute of Veuve Cliquot, anytime between noon and 2 a.m. on weekends.
