How often do you get a chance to see David Byrne for FREE? Well that’s the cost for this one and even better, he’ll be performing the music from his collaborations with Brian Eno which spans several Talking Heads albums as well as their own works together on the classic My Life in the Bush of Ghosts and their latest Everything that Happens Will Happen Today. Did I mention that this was FREE? The theme at Press 195 is pressed comfort food. A sandwich shop with quite the menu, they offer 30 types of delicious sandwiches like the turkey and fontina cheese sandwich with a cranberry and roasted pear chutney on ciabatta ($7.75). While Union Hall looks like a cabin at a ski resort with a fireplace, stone walls, comfy couches, and inexpensive drinks, you may want to stick around rather than barhop. A low-key bar in this hood, O’Connor’s is a hole in the wall where you can grab a cheap drink and watch the game on their TV, just like your grandpa sitting next to you!
