The other night marked Vago’s first anniversary of being opened, and they celebrated with a big bash that included some great food, drink & more.
Those that attended this past Sunday’s Taste Williamsburg Greenpoint were certain to have had a satisfying experience. The warm weather, eclectic group of vendors, and generally welcoming atmosphere maybe for a enjoyable afternoon in the last throes of summer. In fact, one of the day’s most alluring stands came from John Dewar and Sons Traveling Whisky Emporium, which was conveniently placed right in the middle of the festival grounds. Those that went to this particular attraction were likely to leave with a spring in their step, and a little inkling of history in their thoughts.
At first glance, the Kinsey Sicks appear to offer a typical, run-of-the-mill drag show. All of the expected elements are in place: mascara, beautiful dresses, high heels, perfectly quaffed, aquanet hair, eyelashes for miles, and—above all—witty quips and banter.
Henry Aronson doesn’t yet have the same theatrical name recognition as composers Jason Robert Brown, Stephen Sondheim, or Tom Kitt. “Yet” is the operative word here since Aronson’s wholly original score for a loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost is a much needed and welcome addition to the contemporary musical theater genre.
On first sight, Megg Farrell (frontwoman of the aptly titled Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers) may not appear to be a jazz singer. With her nose ring, considerable height, and youthful demeanor, she looks like she could just as easily be a member of a Bikini Kill cover band, rather than a purveyor of a more “old-timey” sound. Upon hearing Megg sing, however, one becomes easily swept into her aesthetics of banjos and rag-time, as frankly she has pipes like Billie Holiday.
When I was ten years old, I had a t-shirt with a stick figure drawing of a boy on it—the boy was running from circles with squiggly lines behind them, and the caption read, “Boys r stupid, throw rocks at them.” Seventeen years later, I faced a painting featuring the same stick figure, same caption at the Ross Art Group, a Midtown Manhattan gallery.
How can you not love Fergie, seriously? She has given us so many amazing hit singles over the past 15 years, both solo and with The Black Eyed Peas, that you gotta have a least one that you jam to time and time again. Now, she is closing out 2017 in a big way, and wants you to be apart of it! For the first time ever, Fergie will be launching her next highly anticipated Double Duchess Visual Experience album exclusively at all of the iPic Theaters and Tuck Hospitality locations nationwide.

Get your bib game ready, order up some fries and coleslaw on the side (no coleslaw haters on this page please) and head to one of these locations to experience the best of the best in all things cheeseburgers.
Cocktail lounges in Manhattan run the muck, with many of them having a dark presence with nothing really that outstanding to look at. The Skylark is the exact opposite of that premise, as the location whisks you off to its 30th floor where you will see spectacular views of Manhattan with some tasty bites and unique drinks to make your experience truly one of a kind.
