Venue: Whitney Museum of American Art
Food: Brother Jimmy’s Bait Shack
Miscellaneous: Dylan’s Candy Bar
In the exhibition Charles LeDray: workworkworkworkwork, the artist features his sculpture work over his 20 year career from the 80s, using materials like sewn cloth, carved human bone, and glazed ceramics. 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!
