Taking a look back in time to New York, late 70s and despite the familiar economic woes the city was going through, it was one of the most creative periods for art and music. Looking at Music: Side 2 features music videos, super-8 films, drawings, photographs, and zines from the combination of music, media, and visual art from the late 70s till the end of the 20th century. Making fast food healthy, Yoshinoya serves bowls of rice, vegetables, and your choice of beef, teriyaki chicken, veggie, or a combo of meats. Super cheap, it’s a favorite spot of mine in midtown. A great dive, Rudy’s Bar and Grill serves up cheap beer by the pint or by the pitcher, and as for the grilling, that includes free hot dogs and popcorn! Though slightly on the expensive side, if you’re in the mood for duck and are a couple or in a group of four or more, Peking Duck House makes some of the best duck you will ever likely have.
