The Daily Shortlist May 25
The film All God’s Creatures, a dark romantic thriller starring Josh Folan (All My Children, Ay Lav Yu, Episode 50), who also wrote and produced the film, and Jessica Kaye (One Life to Live, Veronika Decides to Die) is premiering at the 2011 Hoboken International Film Festival on June 4th at 2 PM. Catch it first at the NewFilmmakers NY series, held at the Anthology Film Archives in Manhattan, tonight at 9 PM. Plus there will be a bar crawl/scavenger hunt promotion called “Body Count,” where stickers of the serial killer’s “bodies,” along with a QR code, will be placed in bars on 2nd Ave. on the night of the screening in the city that will allow people to get some cheap booze in the establishments of choice. If you’ve never been to Minca for dinner, go right now! This small noodle bar makes some amazing ramen noodles from scratch. Try the Minca Ramen, a mild broth with pork, chicken & dried seafood ($8.50). One of the newer bars in the East Village, Common Ground has a dark wood interior, a relaxed atmosphere, and excellent cocktails like the Blueberry Pie. If you like pastries filled with cream, check out Beard Papa Sweets Café. They offer cream fillings like earl grey, green tea, coffee, and the standard vanilla, chocolate, strawberry among others.
