The Daily Shortlist December 9
Marking the 30th Anniversary of Peter Sellers death, David Boyle stars in Being Sellers, bringing to life many of Sellers best known characters in Carl Caulfield’s comedy that attempts to unmask this tortured comic genius. If you’ve got a craving for barbeque, check out Brother Jimmy’s Bait Shack as the ribs, chicken, beef, and pork are all smothered in some amazing BBQ sauce. BB&R, which stands for Blonde, Brunette, and a Redhead is the brainchild of three best friends. What they’ve created is something between a neighborhood bar and a lounge with leather seats in the front and a pool table, photo booth, and video games in the back. Looking more like it came out of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Dylan’s Candy Bar is a colorful place to get lollipops, licorice, and all things sugary. Don’t go crazy though, or your sweet tooth might melt here!
Check out Huzzah! for a night of indie, hip hop, rock, new wave, no wave (whatever wave) spun by resident DJ Victoria Tsigonis and special guest DJ’s KEEPAWAY (www.myspace.com/keepaway) & Nick Gazin. Photos will be taken by your co-host Laura June Kirsch, founder of the world renowned ZackMorrisCellPhone.com. For food with southern flair in Union Square, Chat ‘N’ Chew makes some kickass fried chicken, pork-chops, and meatloaf. In the running for oldest bar in NYC, Pete’s Tavern has been around since 1864 and was made famous by author O. Henry who wrote “Gift of the Magi,” in one of its booths. One good thing about the Union Square location of Whole Foods is that it’s not only a reprieve from this tourist heavy area, but with it’s huge windows, you can sit, get healthy organic food and drink, and watch the insanity like it’s a movie.
