The Daily Shortlist July 30
A film, fashion, and music icon comes back to the stage as Grace Jones hits the Hammerstein Ballroom like a Hurricane, which by no accident is also the title of her new album, the first in 20 years. Though 61 she neither looks it nor acts it and that’s just a tiny sample of what to expect when she hits the stage. She’s definitely something to see live. Though small, Supermac packs a hearty punch with it’s gourmet mac & cheese’s like the Mac Cheesesteak with shaved steak, caramelized onions, roasted peppers, cremini/shitake, provolone, and white American ($8.25 mini; $10.95 mega). A great place in NYC to get a full-bodied dark beer is at Stout. With a very detailed beer list with descriptions, I’ve never had a bad pint at this bar and restaurant, plus the food menu is American and quite good. Probably the biggest 99-cent store in NYC, Jack’s 99 Cent Store is three floors of some of the finest values you can find, especially in an overpriced area like Herald Square.
