The Daily Shortlist January 4
Some people call Ed Wood’s 1959 sci-fi film Plan 9 from Outer Space a cult hit and some call it the worst movie ever made, but judge for yourself when watching this campy movie where aliens try to take over the Earth by resurrecting the dead in a California cemetery. 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?
