The Daily Shortlist February 10
Funnyman Eugene Mirman has gone from stand up to self help as he is now the author of The Will to Whatevs: A Guide to Modern Life. You can meet him tonight at his book release party and see standup by Kristen Schaal, John Oliver, and Paul F. Tompkins. The theme at Press 195 is pressed comfort food. A sandwich shop with quite the menu, they offer 30 types of delicious sandwiches like the turkey and fontina cheese sandwich with a cranberry and roasted pear chutney on ciabatta ($7.75). While Union Hall looks like a cabin at a ski resort with a fireplace, stone walls, comfy couches, and inexpensive drinks, you may want to stick around rather than barhop. A low-key bar in this hood, O’Connor’s is a hole in the wall where you can grab a cheap drink and watch the game on their TV, just like your grandpa sitting next to you!
