i've got a 24 y/o friend in town from San Franciso; first time ever in NYC, she loves live music, so we're going to hit a bunch of LES clubs. this is not my usual hood, so i'm strapped for dinner ideas. nothing fancy, i just want to start the night off right, with a good vibe, and with some fabulous food in our tummies.
2) fun atmosphere
3) inexpensive (<$40pp/with wine or drinks)
4) not too far from the plethora of LES clubs near Houston (it's cold out and she's from california!)
5) not 'inoteca. (i took her to 'ino the other night, and she loved it, but time for a change!)
basically, i want to convince her to move to new york, and show her that you can have a fabulous, cool, night out without spending millions.
