George Clinton has always brought the funk and at this CMJ show he also brings guests including El DeBarge, System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, gospel singer Kim Burrell, and more. Just as shocking (maybe not) is. Located in The Parker Meridian, Burger Joint serves up excellent burgers and milkshakes in its curtained off space inside the hotel. The theme at Bill’s Gay Nineties surprisingly is an ode to the speakeasies of the roaring twenties. With a second floor dedicated to the history of entertainment, it even has an autographed poster of Buffalo Bill. The history’s deep here and the drinks are stiff. If you want to get some sort of sanity back after this night, stop by Tafu for some premium Japanese teas and desserts. No chair throwing allowed!
It’s Halloween time again and what better way to get into the spirit than with some scary movies, and the scariest by far, of those made in the last few years, is the SAW series. If you haven’t seen any of the twisted games Jigsaw plays, then you can catch the SAW marathon- Saw 1, 2, 3, and 4, leading up to the premiere of SAW V tonight at AMC Empire 25 for $15. Everyone’s favorite celebrity chef, who most are likely afraid of, Gordon Ramsey serves a three-course French menu with international flare at Gordon Ramsey at the London. Make reservations early and wear a jacket, as the place only has 45 seats. If you’ve seen his shows, I’m sure you know that you don’t want to piss off this chef! Social, a three floor bar and lounge is big enough to never get bored in and is a great place in that area of town to drink and, well you know the rest! For something different, check out Tuck Shop. This small Australian eatery serves individual sized meat pies wrapped in pastry you have to try if you’re in the hood.
