The Daily Shortlist April 1
Playing all month starting tonight, Paul Simon takes his fans through three stages of his career, starting with Songs from The Capeman, focusing on his love of Latin beats and 50s doo-wop. Expect appearances by Oscar Hernández and the Spanish Harlem Orchestra and many many more. Known more for its cheesecake than anything else on its menu, Junior’s also offers fantastic diner and deli style eats from steak burgers to deli sandwiches. If you can make it through dinner, the cheesecake will be worth the wait! One of Brooklyn’s most interesting dive bars, O’Connor’s offers cheap drinks in a place where Park Slope hipsters meet old-time drinkers, making for one of the oddest pairings that works. An excellent place to get schnitzel and goulash and other Austrian delights, Thomas Beisl is right across the street from BAM.
