5 things to do in Milan this weekend February 10 to 12

Let's start right away by saying that this weekend the only thing to do will be to watch the last two episodes of Sanremo. That has to be done. But we have known for two thousand years that the spirit is strong and the flesh weak. So we fully understand that some of our readers will prefer, when the coveted weekend comes, to get out of the house and not have to sit for hours following Amadeus, Gianni Morandi and the whole show. The nss magazine editorial staff cares about everyone indiscriminately: both those who decide to follow the Festival live and those who venture out into the night in search of entertainment. 

Be that as it may, we are here, and these are the 5 things to do in Milan this weekend.

To Eat – Nozomi

Proclaimed the best ramen in Milan by @cookingwiththehamster, aka the bible of Asian cuisine here in town, Nozomi lives up to its reputation. Why not take advantage of the last twinges of the winter cold (we already know that spring will last four days after which the city will become an oven) to enjoy a hot bowl of ramen? Among other things, the restaurant offers sautéed udon, grilled meat, and even nabemono, which is raw meat that you can grill yourself at the nabemono tables provided.

Via Pietro Calvi, 2

To Drink – Norah Was Drunk

Forget for a moment your flowery herbal teas, your deflating wild fennel infusions, and even dear old mineral water. Forget the gin and tonic, the Negroni and your reassuring red wine. At Norah Was Drunk you play hard. This brand new bar in the Lambrate area specializes in absinthe - the most decadent and mythological of spirits available this side of the planet. The bar's big point of excellence (and rightly advertised) is the Martini cocktail - to be drunk, however, with the accompaniment of absinthe chocolates. Another great workhorse is the Bloody Mary, for those who like it, while we point out for aperitifs the preserved Portuguese sardinhas that are just missing the word.

Via Nicola Antonio Porpora, 169

To Club - DIE SEKTE KLUBNACHT @ Silicone Club

Maybe it's a bit far if you're without a car (these days so much Enjoy and Car2Go that cabs are rare, very rare commodities) but if you want to experience on your skin the ecstasy of Berlin techno and its quite undressed vibe why not push into the heart of Lambrate and find out what the night has in store for you? At least have, in your quest for adventure, the forethought to buy tickets in advance at the usual links found on the Instagram page embedd on here.

Via Plezzo, 16

To Chill – Terrifier @ Fondazione Prada

Unbelievable. The bloodiest, most awe-inspiring, trashy, shocking horror film of the past five years (the sequel is even more truculent) will be screened within the hallowed walls of Fondazione Prada in collaboration with cult magazine Nocturno, whose founder and editor will be in the theater introducing the film. If you're impressionable stay home because the film is an encyclopedia of sadism with very few precedents - but if your spirits are steadfast, watching this cult horror film in the Fondazione Prada cinema is the ultimate cinematic experience. Reservations will be needed here, too.

To Discover - Mecenati, collezionisti, filantropi @ Gallerie d’Italia

Two reasons to visit this exhibition. The first is to look at a series of works that, normally locked in private collections or scattered through various museums around the world, are not often seen put together. The second is to understand how the very rich spent money before the advent of Instagram. Spoiler: they were buying paintings by Michelangelo.
