Here’s a duo you don’t see play together every day, country legend Willie Nelson and jazz icon Wynton Marsalis. But after hearing their recent collaboration together on their new album Two Men With the Blues, which has plenty of standards, you may wonder why they haven’t gotten together sooner. Low priced anything near Columbia University is getting harder to find, but at Symposium, you’ll get Greek food that won’t force you to take a mortgage out. The Pastitsio (baked macaroni with ground meat $9.95) is out of this world. Not the kind of dive bar you’re thinking, though Broadway Dive has a single malt scotch and bourbon menu big enough that you won’t even know where you are after a few. A coffee bar that also serves liquor, tapas, and baked goods all in one place? Sip sounds good to me.
