Show time: 7 PM

Professor of Media Studies and Law at the University of Virginia, Siva Vaidhyanathan takes a look at what’s good and bad about Google in his new book The Googlization of Everything (And Why We Should Worry), giving the reader an in-depth look at the global resistance and concern over Google and the moral consequences of Google’s actions and policies. 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 its huge windows, you can sit, get healthy organic food and drink, and watch the insanity like it’s a movie.
