The Daily Shortlist September 21
Rain Machine is Kyp Malone, of TV on the Radio fame, and on his solo album their may be similarities to his main band but there are some distinctly quieter jazz and bluesy departures that make the album his own while making you see his important contributions to TVOTR. Keeping the night going, try El Viejo Yayo for dinner. This gorgeous and warm restaurant has an elegant dining room and an affordable menu offering Dominican/Latin cuisine. The outside of Buttermilk Bar may look non-descript, but looks are deceiving . . . just not in this case, as this low-key watering hole is where you can grab a cheap drink in a friendly atmosphere, while playing a board game or two. With a near insane menu of chocolates from coffee and tea to delectable dessert, and even beer, The The Chocolate Room is a great way to end the night on a high note.
