The Daily Shortlist November 2
Cousin Brucie hosts Rockers on Broadway: Celebrating the 60s. An all-star lineup of some of the best from that era will perform including TONY Award Winners Alice Ripley & John Lloyd Young, Lou Christie, Eddie Brigati & Gene Cornish (Rascals), Diana DeGarmo (American Idol), Micky Dolenz (Monkees), Leslie Gore, Rip Chords, and Tomar Wilson & Cast members of HAIR. While the original Junior’s Restaurant in Brooklyn is best, this midtown location offers a nearly identical menu of deli sandwiches, diner entrees, and of course soul food fixin’s, on top of some of the best cheesecake in NYC, which is saying a lot! For drinks check out The View . Not the TV show, but the bar high atop the Marriot Marquis. Plus it revolves. If you’re looking for something to do, go to Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. Yes, it’s a cheesy tourist attraction, but where else are you going to get a picture with Nicholas Cage or Samuel L. Jackson?
