The Daily Shortlist October 8

An untitled 1943 Arshile Gorky work, at Haunch of Venison.

Location: Midtown West, NYC
Art: Abstract Expressionism: A World Elsewhere
Show time: Tue-Sat: 10 AM-6 PM
Venue: Haunch of Venison
Food: Burger Joint
Drink: Bill’s Gay Nineties
Miscellaneous: Tafu

Curated by London-based art historian and critic, David Anfam, Abstract Expressionism: A World Elsewhere features abstract art by New York School painters Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, and Jackson Pollock. 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!
