The Daily Shortlist July 21
Reminiscent of 60s and 70s acts like Chicago, Robbers on High Street include some great pop hooks and a killer horn section helping keep the art of the song in place rather than be just another synth act. Joining them are Hymns who make some great groove infested pop music. What I like about Three of Cups the most is that the food is classic Italian fare like Pizza made in a wood-fired oven, risotto, pasta, while also offering more exciting dishes like lamb stew in a barolo wine reduction, served with potato gnocchi. The atmosphere is relaxing, bordering on romantic. With a name like Whiskey Ward, it’s expected that they deliver the goods, which lucky for this bar, they do. Whether it’s Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey, or Single Malts, they got em’ along with a pool table and a damn good jukebox. Who doesn’t like cupcakes? Sugar Sweet Sunshine has one of the best in the city. With 10 different kinds, it’s hard to beat.
Revealed Burlesque celebrates their special three year anniversary show on Wednesday, July 21 in The Kraine Theater. This month will include extra special performances by GiGi La Femme, Arms O’Neil (aka Legs Malone), Gal Friday, Harvest Moon, Kobayashi Maru (aka Nasty Canasta), Sapphire Jones, Madame Rosebud, and Ekaterina, all in their birthday suits! Those looking for good and inexpensive Italian food should most definitely check out Supper. Do yourself a favor and try the “Priest Stranglers” pasta with Marinara and soft Ricotta di Pecora cheese. A good nearby bar is 2A. With two floors of windows, it’s great for watching the remaining hipsters who can still afford to live in the city pass by. If all your dinner/drink plans fail and you need an all-in-one, the Whole Foods on Bowery is your upscale go-to-grocery store for dinner and snacks.
