The Daily Shortlist Feb 26
Long gone are the days when musicians could wear diapers on stage and still be cool, and while most of the original lineup have moved on, George Clinton still knows how to bring the cosmic funk like no other, and tonight he brings it to Greenpoint. One of the last vestige’s of real Brooklyn in this hipster neighborhood, La Locanda serves simple Italian dishes like Chicken Parmigiana and pasta, but don’t be fooled, the food here is excellent, affordable and the vibe is homey. A good place to drink and talk nearby, Enid’s has cheap beer, a friendly atmosphere, and even food. Another good place for drinks if you feel like bar-hopping, Royal Oak offers a dark and sexy vibe, where excellent DJs play old-school R&B and 80s metal all mixed up like Britney Spears!
