The Daily Shortlist June 29
Part of the “Word For Word” outdoor reading series at Bryant Park, comedian Jenny Slate talks with fellow comedian Michael Showalter about his new memoir Mr. Funny Pants. For dinner, check out Vinyl, a rock and roll themed restaurant, where the menus are made of old album covers and the food is a mix of American and Thai. Don’t forget to check out the bathroom, each one has a music icon theme. With vaulted ceilings and a mostly red and cream interior, the Cellar Bar, located in the Bryant Park Hotel, is one gorgeous place, creating a sexy atmosphere. The drinks are pricey, but worth the stopover. For kicks, take a little walk through the The Bryant Park Hotel. This chic boutique hotel, designed by British architect David Chipperfield, not only has the Cellar Bar but the Koi Restaurant, a fantastic Japanese spot.
