The Daily Shortlist June 29

Location: Union Square, NYC
Talk: Nick Redding
Show time: 7 PM
Venue: The Strand
Food: Chat ‘N’ Chew
Drink: Pete’s Tavern
Miscellaneous: Whole Foods

Author Nick Redding talks with New York Times columnist Sam Freedman about his book Methland, chronicling a small Iowa town that fell victim to crystal meth. For food with southern flair in Union Square, Chat ‘N’ Chew makes some kickass fried chicken, pork-chops, and meatloaf. In the running for oldest bar in NYC, Pete’s Tavern has been around since 1864 and was made famous by author O. Henry who wrote “Gift of the Magi,” in one of its booths. One good thing about the Union Square location of Whole Foods is that it’s not only a reprieve from this tourist heavy area, but with it’s huge windows, you can sit, get healthy organic food and drink, and watch the insanity like it’s a movie.
