Food: Empanada Mama
Drink: Circus

Acclaimed painter Marlene Dumas gets her own retrospective of her work. Featuring around seventy paintings and thirty-five drawings of her work from the early 70s to series works she has done focusing on the human figure with themes of race, sexuality, and social identity with personal experience. Though small, Empanada Mama packs a hefty punch with more than 40 kinds of empanadas. Choose from a wheat or corn flour shell to start as ingredients include basic rice and beans to what they have dubbed “Viagra,” a wheat flour empanada stuffed with shrimp, scallop, and crab ($3). Appropriately, at Circus, you’ll get free hot dogs, peanuts, and popcorn without the animals, screaming babies, and clowns at this Rudy’s Bar spin-off that has beer just as cheap and a neighborhood feel. If cheap beer ain’t your thing, Vintage has a wine list with over 200 wines by the glass or bottle from most of the boutique wineries in Long Island and Upstate New York.
