Subliming Vessel is the first museum exhibition devoted to Matthew Barney‘s works on paper. Featuring nearly one hundred drawings spanning the artist’s career to date, the exhibition will include Barney’s earliest drawings made in the late 1980s, drawings created in conjunction with the Cremaster film cycle (1994â€“2002), and those related to his current project River of Fundament. At one of my favorite places to get duck, The Peking Duck House, the meat is succulent and the skin crunches like a potato chip. Sometimes you just want to grab a pint without paying a cover charge or playing host to a group of people after work, which is why I like Blackstones Pub & Restaurant. It looks like an old-time saloon and has two pool tables in the back and plenty of other games, while also being big enough to grab traditional American food from the menu. If youâ€™re still hungry, check out the New York Milkshake Company for one of the best $6 shakes of your life.
