The Daily Shortlist March 24
Catch the tail end of MoMA’s salute to one of the best known fonts as the exhibit “50 Years of Helvetica” comes to a close on March 31. A design classic, it’s hard to believe that this font turned 50 in 2007. Making fast food healthy, Yoshinoya serves bowls of rice, vegetables, and your choice of beef, teriyaki chicken, veggie, or a combo of meats. Super cheap, it’s a favorite spot of mine in midtown. A great dive, Rudy’s Bar and Grill serves up cheap beer by the pint or by the pitcher, and as for the grilling, that includes free hot dogs and popcorn! Though slightly on the expensive side, if you’re in the mood for duck and are a couple or in a group of four or more, Peking Duck House makes some of the best duck you will ever likely have.
