The Daily Shortlist March 18
Everyone’s favorite sarcastic songwriter John Darnielle returns with his band The Mountain Goats on the tail of their new release Heretic Pride, which is all over the place. Joining them are The Moaners, a North Carolina based blues rock female duo. For eats, check out Thai Me Up Sandwich Bar, a sandwich shop offering Thai sandwiches with 7 Steamed Fried Vegetables and a choice of chicken, veggie, tofu or beef on a baguette with 3 types of sauces for $7. One of the city’s oldest bars, you can feel the history when you enter as memorabilia, since its beginnings in 1854, are all over the walls. Aside from it being a frat hangout nowadays, it’s worth the trip. You’ve seen that orange Mudd coffee truck parked on Astor Place and on various other streets, but check out their café on East 9th for coffee and a healthy, vegan, and vegetarian menu.
