Venue: Terminal 5
Food: Empanada Mama
Drink: Circus
Miscellaneous: Vintage

Made up of DJ duo Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, these two have been seducing listeners with heavy hitter collaborators, worldbeat influence and a loungy vibe for over a decade now. Their latest album Radio Retailation sees collaborations with Anoushka Shankar, Femi Kuti, and Seu George. 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.
