Acclaimed writer/director Richard Foreman teams up with avant-jazz god John Zorn for this work filled with the sounds of groans, grunts, and babbling that explores the initiation of a group of people into a world where ambiguous behavior alone leads to freedom–perhaps under the tutelage of the necessary “false messiah.” With sushi thatâ€™s 50 percent off all the time, you might think, â€œSomethingâ€™s wrong with that?â€ but the fish is good and the rolls are inventive, making this one of the best low-priced sushi joints in the city. Though St. Marks all of a sudden lost its charm, Grassroots Tavern hasnâ€™t. This large dive bar has cheap drinks, darts in the back, and old men behind the bar, things a good dive bar should have. Excellent coffee served in a big mug and a healthy menu of food coupled with a year round enclosed outdoor backyard patio make Mud Cafe a great little coffee shop in the area.
