The Daily Shortlist January 13
As part of BAM’s three-year Bridge Project, where British and American actors join forces to perform together in some of Shakespeare’s greatest works, Sam Mendes directs As You Like It, starring Michelle Beck, Christian Camargo, Stephen Dillane, Ron Cephas Jones, Juliet Rylance, and Thomas Sadoski. Known more for its cheesecake than anything else on its menu, Junior’s also offers fantastic diner and deli style eats from steak burgers to deli sandwiches. If you can make it through dinner, the cheesecake will be worth the wait! One of Brooklyn’s most interesting dive bars, O’Connor’s offers cheap drinks in a place where Park Slope hipsters meet old-time drinkers, making for one of the oddest pairings that works. An excellent place to get schnitzel and goulash and other Austrian delights, Thomas Beisl is right across the street from BAM.
