Miscellaneous: The Tenement Museum

Singer/songwriter and comic book fanatic, Jeffrey Lewis plays in support of his new album 12 Crass Songs, a set of beautiful and quirky reinterpretations of songs by the early 80s punk band Crass. Joining them is Schwervon! A duo making equally quirky pop music. If you seek irony in your food as well as your music, then you’ll love China 1. Sporting décor more Middle Eastern opium den than Chinatown, the food is the only thing reminiscent to China, with a smaller though better menu than your favorite Chinese take-out joint. White Rabbit, named after a Chinese milk candy, offers an all-white interior, a small Asian inspired menu, and excellent cocktails. For a taste of the beauty and hell that immigrants lived through on the L.E.S. back in the late 1800s, The Tenement Museum is as realistic as it gets. The only thing that’s changed since is the rent!
