The Wall Street Journal’s Technology writer Walt Mossberg sits down with Moby to discuss music and entertainment in the digital age, personal gadgets and technology. Come at 6:30 and there will be a wine and canapé reception. Cheap yet not too heavy, Hummus Place serves up surprisingly great hummus in the uptown version of their original downtown location. More a game room for adults than a sports bar, Jake’s Dilemmal offers more than 50 beers to choose from while you can play pool, video games, or foosball. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Alice’s Tea Cup is as much for adults as it is for kids. Get one of a vast assortment of teas flown in from around the world here or a gorgeously designed slice of cake.

Location: Lower East Side, NYC
Bands: Hockey Get Tickets Here
Show time: 9 PM
Venue: Mercury Lounge
Food: Paladar
Drink: Welcome to the Johnsons
Miscellaneous: Economy Candy

Not the sport, the band by the same name! But this Hockey are heavy on the synths and have plenty of soul, plus their songs kick some serious ass. Joining them are Sigmund Droid, Atomic Tom, and Claymation Velociraptor. Paladar, whose celebrity chef, Aarón Sanchez is from the Food Network show “Melting Pot,” delivers a Pan-Latino concept taking traditional Spanish fare and adding deliciously executed gourmet twists. Feeling retro? Then Welcome to the Johnsons is the place for you. It’s like being in your uncles wreck room from the 70s. With all wood paneled walls, plastic covered couches, and a Pac Man machine, this bar is out for a good time. Stop by Economy Candy and get a small taste of what it might be like to walk through Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, minus the hijinks, as there’s all sorts of candy everywhere. A real NY landmark, it’s been around since 1937.
