The Daily Shortlist February 14
It’s Valentine’s Day! And rather than blowing a wad of cash to say “I love you,” take the beaten path and show your significant other that you care by taking them to the Upright Citizens Brigade, who is hosting their weekly Maude Night tonight. For only five bucks you can see eight top-notch teams perform sketches on the tiny, yet somewhat-legendary stage located below Gristedes. So make a night of it, and hit up the ultra-kitsch Trailer Park Lounge during their 4-7pm daily happy hour for cheap margaritas, then class it up a little at Kiku Sushi. We recommend the Hawaii Roll; stuffed with lobster and asparagus and drizzled with mango sauce, eating this is almost like being in Hawaii! Almost. Later, kill some time before the show, by wandering around Chelsea Market. This old Nabisco Factory (where the Oreo Cookie was invented!) is now home to the Food Network, as well as fun shops, restaurants and coffee stands.
