The Daily Shortlist March 6
Location: Midtown West, NYC
Event: 2008 Plug Awards with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds + St. Vincent + Dizzee Rascal + José González
Venue: Terminal 5
Miscellaneous: Central Park
Terminal 5 hosts the 2008 Plug Awards for indie-music and though this is not the best venue to see shows, it’s hard to pass this up as comedian Patton Oswald hosts and performers include Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, St. Vincent, Dizzee Rascal, and Jose Gonzalez. Nearby and delicious, Eatery offers a new American menu that’s asian influenced. Try the Red Curry Chicken Breast over roti pancake, with baby carrots and red curry coconut sauce ($16.95). Valhalla’s minimalist space is chill, letting the 24 brands of beer from all over the world on tap be the main attraction at this bar. While its warm out, waste a little time walking through Central Park, relax, and get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Just watch your step. The working horses tend to leave surprises behind them!
