The Daily Shortlist February 10
Ethan Hawke directs the Sam Shepard play A Lie of the Mind, about a man who believes he may have murdered his wife while his brother tries to figure out the truth, which sees two families shaken by violence. The all-star cast also includes Keith Carradine, Josh Hamilton, Marin Ireland, Laurie Metcalf, Alessandro Nivola, Maggie Siff, Frank Whaley, and Karen Young. A nice compliment to a juicy play is Burger Joint. Located in The Parker Meridian, this basic burger joint serves up excellent burgers and milkshakes in its curtained off space inside the hotel. The theme at Bill’s Gay Nineties surprisingly is an ode to the speakeasies of the roaring twenties. With a second floor dedicated to the history of entertainment, it even has an autographed poster of Buffalo Bill. The history’s deep here and the drinks are stiff. If you want to get some sort of sanity back after this night, stop by Tafu for some premium Japanese teas and desserts. No chair throwing allowed!
