The Daily Shortlist August 24
A 5-piece Americana rock band, Bird of Youth is led by Beth Wawerna who has performed with the likes of the Wrens, Okkervil River, Roky Erickson and Matt Pond PA. This is week 3 of their four week residency at The Living Room. They are joined by Charles Bissell of the Wrens. 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.
