Snapshots from an enigmatic fairy-tale in which Suzie, the elusive coquette, brings Samuel to his knees – from where he worships a life he only half understands. Old-Fashioned Prostitutes (A True Romance) is an expressionistic chamber-play that twists emotional heartache into a landscape of continual mental invention. With sushi thatâ€™s 50 percent off all the time, you might think, â€œSomethingâ€™s wrong with that?â€ but at Oyama 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.
