The Daily Shortlist October 7
This benefit concert will see all proceeds go to Barack Obama’s campaign and will feature a night of music and comedy. Artists to perform include Andrew Bird, Eugene Mirman, The Fiery Furnaces, Kumail Nanjiani, Alina Simone, Heather Lawless, Guster, Lizz Winstead, Martin Bisi, John Roberts, Adira Amram, and special musical guests. If you’re in the zone for Mexican, Bonita is a great place. Serving the standard fare, try the mouth-watering chicken burrito and Mexican corn on the cob, wrapped in cheese with a hint of spice for that extra kick. If you’re looking to dance afterwards, Savalas has both great DJs and drink specials on top of delivering on the fun factor. Fabiane’s is a great little cafe in the heart of Williamsburg that’s great for not too late night people watching. Try one of their fantastic desserts or sip coffee and stare at the passing hipsters.
