The Daily Shortlist May 27
You love the TV show Dancing with the Stars and wouldn’t mind dancing with the stars yourself. Now P.S. 122 gives you the chance to really dance with the real stars at this non-competitive benefit. Celeb dancers include Liam Mower (Billy Elliot), Philippe Petit, Elizabeth Streb, Yvonne Meier, Regina Roche and Adrienne Truscott. The judges include Justin Bond (Kiki and Herb), Bebe Neuwirth (Chicago), and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot). The event is hosted by Isaac Mizrahi and Richard Move. Pukk serves up some delicious vegetarian Thai food. With a futuristic design, plastic and green tint everywhere, the menu offers everything from Pad Thai to Spicy Watercress Duck, only the duck, like all meat here, is made of vegetarian soy. A chill bar to go for a drink and not be bothered with loud, annoying drunks is The Magician. This place, which has no visible name, is across the street from Welcome to the Johnsons. With a southern theme, the draw at Mason Dixon is being one of only two bars in NYC with a mechanical bull. For $10 you can ride it. Expect to be thrown off in 5 seconds, if you can stay on that long!
