The Daily Shortlist December 29
Practice ending the year on the right note a little early by seeing legendary singer Patti Smith. If not, she is playing Bowery Ballroom from December 29 to the 31st, so take your pick! For dinner, The Stanton Social has earned a reputation for being a beautifully designed restaurant/lounge while serving up some delicious multi-ethnic cuisine. For drinks, a favorite of mine is The Magician, this bar’s chill atmosphere just may be the cure for a well-earned night of rocking. A great way to end the night? Stop by The Pink Pony. This boho café has been serving French food and coffee since the 80s and has a relaxing vibe. It’s as punk as that neighborhood gets nowadays.
