The Daily Shortlist November 11
Folk singer Jennie Arnau makes Americana music with southern flair and her current album Chasing Giants is filled with some great grassroots rock. For dinner, The Stanton Social has earned a reputation for being a beautifully designed restaurant/lounge while serving up some delicious multi-ethnic cuisine. For drinks, a favorite of mine is The Magician, this bar’s chill atmosphere just may be the cure for a well-earned night of rocking. A great way to end the night? Stop by The Pink Pony. This boho café has been serving French food and coffee since the 80s and has a relaxing vibe. It’s as punk as that neighborhood gets nowadays.
New York based Digital Agency called iNDELIBLE is branching out of the usual realm of an advertising shop – taking many of the industries principles in digital and interactivity and transforming them into art. Unintended Consequences is part live event, part on-going digital experiment, and part aesthetic trickery, which celebrates the curious relationship between intention and outcome. It’s goal is to push the boundaries of interactivity starting with this November 11th event which will then continue to grow and mutate on a specifically designed microsite. One of the best affordable Vietnamese restaurants in the city, Nha Trang is right near the downtown courthouse, making it a high volume place. Despite that, the food is great and the Pho (rice noodle soup) dishes are $5 and under. Named after William S. Burroughs novel, Naked Lunch is a cool and comfortable bar where local artists usually gather. No shooting up though! One of the best taqueria’s in the city, the Mexican food at La Esquina is authentic and to die for. While tacos will set you back $3, plates are in the $6 to $7.25 range.
