The Daily Shortlist March 22
Join hardcore music enthusiasts at Pianos, one of the Lower East Side’s favorite bar/lounge/live-music venues. On Monday nights, the bar hosts Feed Your Head Rock Trivia Night, a fun and challenging multi-round contest that tests your knowledge on a wide range of rock and roll topics. The winning teams receive free drinks and bragging rights. Let’s face it, San Loco does not serve the greatest Mexican food ever. But it certainly isn’t bad. The prices are inexpensive, you can get a heaping amount of nachos for as little as $3.75, and telling by the heavy traffic, the place is doing just fine. What I like about Max Fish is that it’s a local bar for local artists. It’s walls play host monthly for art exhibitions, there’s a pool table in the back, and drinks aren’t pricey, like many new bars springing up in this neighborhood. For one of the best cupcakes in the city, Sugar Sweet Sunshine has 10 varieties, on top of cakes. Try the Sexy Red Velvet or the Bob, a yellow cupcake with chocolate almond buttercream.
