The Daily Shortlist Jan 29
The idea of a pop opera based on The Jerry Springer Show (yes, that Jerry Springer) that opened in London of 2003, sounded like a bad idea. A smash hit since, now it makes a two-night stand at Carnegie Hall, with Harvey Keitel playing you know who. Just as shocking (maybe not) is Burger Joint. Located in The Parker Meridian, this basic burger joint serves up excellent burgers and milkshakes in its curtained off space inside the hotel. The theme at Bill’s Gay Nineties surprisingly is an ode to the speakeasies of the roaring twenties. With a second floor dedicated to the history of entertainment, it even has an autographed poster of Buffalo Bill. The history’s deep here and the drinks are stiff. If you want to get some sort of sanity back after this night, stop by Tafu for some premium Japanese teas and desserts. No chair throwing allowed!
