The Daily Shortlist October 22
Black Watch is a play written by Gregory Burke focusing on Scottish soldiers in the Black Watch regiment of the British army stationed in Iraq. The play is fast paced taking place in a pool hall and moving back and forth to the soldiers time in Iraq, giving a somewhat first-hand look at what it was like for them there. The acting is brilliant and the story moves so fast that you never get the chance to be bored. RICE not surprisingly offers a pretty intense variety of rice, from brown to Bhutanese red. Most of the rice based dishes come in large and small sizes. Right below RICE is Low Bar, an extremely convenient place to grab a drink and catch some great DJs spin in a lounge environment. Right off the water, with a view of the South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn Bridge so close you can touch it, the only thing that could make this view better is ice cream. You’ll usually find a long line for Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, but the sweet flavors are worth it!
