The Daily Shortlist March 10
Music blog The Sky Report hosts their Winter Showcase 2011 and features performances by some of the city’s best up and coming bands around in LAUREL HALO, AUTRE NE VEUT, LA BIG VIC, MEGAFORTRESS, TOBY ARONSON, and GAMES (DJS). For food in this neighborhood, Potion Café offers organically grown and traded food that’s part of the “slow food” movement and make delicious and creative food like the poached eggs in white wine sauce. For drinks, check out Life Café Nine 83. While it’s THE same Life Café that the RENT musical features in the play, it’s not the same location. This new Bushwick locale also possesses a boho vibe, an Americanized menu of ethnic food, and a fun selection of mixed drinks including martini’s and lemonade cocktails. A HUGE space decked out in old couches, Stain is an artsy bar that looks like an old-school coffeehouse yet serves local wines and beers.
