The Daily Shortlist July 20
One of the best singer/songwriters around today, Rufus Wainwright graces the stage in Brooklyn to perform some of the songs from his Judy Garland tribute a few years back on piano. On top of that his dad, who just happens to be one of the greatest folk singers ever, Loudon Wainwright III will open the show. The theme at Press 195 is pressed comfort food. A sandwich shop with quite the menu, they offer 30 types of delicious sandwiches like the turkey and fontina cheese sandwich with a cranberry and roasted pear chutney on ciabatta ($7.75). While Union Hall looks like a cabin at a ski resort with a fireplace, stone walls, comfy couches, and inexpensive drinks, you may want to stick around rather than barhop. A low-key bar in this hood, O’Connor’s is a hole in the wall where you can grab a cheap drink and watch the game on their TV, just like your grandpa sitting next to you!
