Swiss body and performance artist Manon has been depicting the female identity since the 70s in photos and in this exhibition some of her works will be seen outside Switzerland for the first time. My new favorite Mexican taco stand, La Esquina, serves up amazing tacos and tortas. Try the Aguacate Con Queso taco with avocado, queso fresco black bean, pico de gallo, and salsa verde ($3.25). This place will blow your mind. If you can get in, McSorley’s Ale House is the oldest bar in NYC, having served up pints since 1854, it has the chair President Lincoln sat in when he stopped in for a drink after a big speech at Cooper Union, among other artifacts. Serving rice pudding in a variety of flavors, Rice to Riches is as funky as it sounds, in a good way!
