The Daily Shortlist April 22
When you think of Franz Kafka, puppet does not generally come to mind, but at Puppet Kafka presented at HERE arts, this play digs into the life and work of one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. Did I mention that all the performers in this play are marionettes? Well they are, making this all the more charming. Nearby, Pakistan Tea House is a buffet style Indian restaurant where you can choose between chicken, meat, fish and vegetables. It’s affordable and very good. For drinks, check out Mocca Lounge. With a funky interior and a menu of Italian inspired fare, it’s also a bar with a large list of coffees with or without alcohol, beers, and frozen shots. Smack dab in the heart of Chinatown, the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory makes gourmet ice cream flavors like Black Sesame, Ginger, Durian, and more exotic flavors like Taro and Wasabi. Don’t worry, they have the go-to’s like Vanilla, fruits, and chocolate flavors too.
