The Daily Shortlist December 31
2009 is just a few hours away and if you still don’t have big plans you may be screwed! One downtempo option to ring in the New Year is to hang with Blonde Redhead at Terminal 5, where they will be playing their catalogue of mellow melodies as 2008 comes to an end. By the way . . . HAPPY NEW YEAR! At Zip Burger they offer farm-raised, organic, and grass-fed meat and poultry, letting you build your own burger with plenty of gourmet toppings. The first time I went to Subway Inn I thought it was completely strange that there was a dive bar off Lexington Avenue, especially in this neck of the woods, but somehow it works. Born in the 30s, this bar has somehow remained, and thank god, as it’s easily the cheapest place in the area for a drink. For fans of Japanese pop-culture, Kinokuniya Bookstore has a large selection of Japanese themed books, videos, CDs, magazines, comics, and stationary.
