The Daily Shortlist August 4
I have to say I was skeptical about the new album The Suburbs from Arcade Fire. How often aside from Radiohead, Flaming Lips and a few others does a band put out a third consistently good while groundbreaking album? Regardless, this band now counts among them. Openers are SPOON and you can catch them tonight and/or tomorrow. The owner of GoGo Curry is obsessed with the Yankees Hideki Matsui and his Jersey (55). The menu’s theme is baseball and katsu, a fried meat, chicken, or shrimp cutlet served in a curry sauce is the specialty here. Portion sizes are Walk (small), Single (Med.), Double (L), and Triple (XL) and are inexpensive. The mascot, a gorilla for some reason, is plastered everywhere, making this place even quirkier. In the heart of the garment district, Stitch, a cozy after-work bar/lounge, stocks a cocktail menu with a design theme. If you still have energy and are in the mood to bowl, check out Leisure Time Bowl. Located in the Port Authority, this place is stylish and fun.
