The Daily Shortlist Jan 22
Yeah Martha Wainwright’s parents are folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and her brother is Rufus, but Martha stands pretty damn tall on her own. At this show she teams up with multi-instrumentalist Doug Wieselman to cover the songs of Edith Piaf. For din-din, check out Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant. Serving up sandwiches, omelletes, and baked goods for breakfast and lunch, for dinner expect the likes of Pan Seared Halibut with sweet corn succotash, herb roasted tomatoes, and summer squash ($19). Named after the poet Paul Verlaine, the bar offers an asian food and drink menu. While you can’t order the absinthe that probably helped kill the poet, you can order drinks like the El Chupacabra, which is better tasting with a kick of its own. If you like pickles, Guss’ Pickles has been around since 1910, it’s a landmark spot, and still makes a great pickle.
