Focusing on mixed media art from Central and Eastern Europe, Cutting Realities: Gender Strategies in Art takes a look at the boundaries and restrictions of sexual identity, standardizations, and transgressions of physical appearance and mentally pre-configured constructions of social behavior. In other words, this exhibit explores the gender roles we perceive and all the different ones that are out there. At one of my favorite places to get duck, The Peking Duck House, the meat is succulent and the skin crunches like a potato chip. Sometimes you just want to grab a pint without paying a cover charge or playing host to a group of people after work, which is why I like Blackstones Pub & Restaurant. It looks like an old-time saloon and has two pool tables in the back and plenty of other games, while also being big enough to grab traditional American food from the menu. If you’re still hungry, check out the New York Milkshake Company for one of the best $6 shakes of your life.
