The Daily Shortlist July 24
Based off of the MTV show Jack *%ss, featuring physical stunts and pranks by a cast including Johnny Knoxville, the exhibit traces the history of performance art and features works from artists like Chris Burden, who 30 years ago, choreographed a performance piece in which his assistant shot him in his left arm. Burger joint in the front, upscale lounge in the back, the menu at Pop Burger includes basics like 2 pop burgers for $5 for a quick fix or if your lounging, the likes of tuna tartar with soy truffle jus ($15). The Gaslight, a great hotspot bar in the meatpacking district, is dark and cozy while affordable for the area. If you don’t know Amy’s Bread, when you order a sandwich at a café or restaurant in the city, ask where they got the bread. There’s a good chance it’s from Amy’s because she’s one of the best bread makers in the city.
