The Daily Shortlist October 19
Part of the CMJ Music Marathon, FRANCE ROCKS CMJ NIGHTS, is a FREE two-night party tonight and tomorrow. Bureau Export presents some of the hottest up-and-coming French acts with a style of their own and almost an entire English speaking repertoire. Bands performing include The Lanskies, Hindi Zahra, The Two, Revolver, and Chateau Marmont. For food with southern flair in Union Square, Chat ‘N’ Chew makes some kickass fried chicken, pork-chops, and meatloaf. In the running for oldest bar in NYC, Pete’s Tavern has been around since 1864 and was made famous by author O. Henry who wrote “Gift of the Magi,” in one of its booths. One good thing about the Union Square location of Whole Foods is that it’s not only a reprieve from this tourist heavy area, but with it’s huge windows, you can sit, get healthy organic food and drink, and watch the insanity like it’s a movie.
