The Daily Shortlist June 23
Anytime you can get the chance to check out experimental hip hop beatmaker Flying Lotus, is a definite opportunity to see some of the most interesting and fun shows ever. Blending everything from video game sounds to Asian strings, the man makes music light years ahead. Joining him are Thundercat, Austin Peralta, Teebs, and Strangeloop. What also rocks is finding a decent pizza! Fornino offers just that, wrapped up in an original concept. Serving wood oven burning pizza, the menu is broken up into three generations, the first being your basic pizza ingredients while the second and third go off the gourmet deep end, giving you more than 20 options total. For drinks, the D.O.C. Wine Bar has a homey atmosphere and an excellent wine list of strictly Italian wines and small plates of food. If coffee is your thing, The Verb Café offers not only coffee but sandwiches, desserts, and soup. Chill at a table and write that novel, look for jobs online, or hang with a friend like everyone else there.
