The Daily Shortlist December 16
NextAid, an leading nonprofit organization that harnesses the power of music to support sustainable development projects that serve vulnerable children, hosts NextAID World AIDS Day, bringing together the best DJs in NY for a one night show to raise funds and awareness for AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children in Africa. Here, they bring together artists to perform including Radiohiro & MC Zulu from Chicago, Dulce Vita from San Francisco, & Joro Boro from NYC along with dancers, burlesque, and more. Where to go afterwards? Go straight to the bar, and that bar would be 151, where happy hour is 7 days a week from 6pm till 10pm and includes 2 for 1 drinks. For those that don’t want a liquid dinner first, check Social for comfort food including the Mac and Cheese (Macaroni covered in Three Cheese Truffled Mornay Sauce and topped w/Seasoned Bread Crumbs). For a late night eat, a favorite spot of mine is Bereket for falafels and to watch drunks succeed at spilling their food all over themselves and failing at picking up chicks. Not for the faint of heart!
