In Andy Warhol’s Vinyl, the 1965 adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange the setting is a lot smaller than in Stanley Kubrick’s classic film and there’s plenty of S&M practitioners. Starring Gerard Malanga, this film also marks the first appearance of Warhol Factory and film superstar Edie Sedgwick. If you’ve never been to Minca for dinner, go right now! This small noodle bar makes some amazing ramen noodles from scratch. Try the Minca Ramen, a mild broth with pork, chicken & dried seafood ($8.50).
