When you thought Alice in Chains were done after Layne Staley’s death in 2002, the band regrouped with a new lead singer and a new album in Black Gives Way to Blue. Though you can’t honestly replace Layne, the new singer does a decent job. Catch the band live and at least reminisce about your early 90s rage. Though small, Empanada Mama packs a hefty punch with more than 40 kinds of empanadas. Choose from a wheat or corn flour shell to start as ingredients include basic rice and beans to what they have dubbed “Viagra,” a wheat flour empanada stuffed with shrimp, scallop, and crab ($3). For drinks, I’d recommend the wine bar Xai Xai. With a South African theme, this darkly designed spot is great for a date as well as for before or after event drinks. The wines are incredible and they even have fondue! An alternative wine bar, Vintage has a wine list with over 200 wines by the glass or bottle from most of the boutique wineries in Long Island and Upstate New York.
