Saturday Looks Good to Me

Littlejeans had his own agenda this weekend. We left him to it and walked across the Manhattan Bridge into the city...

...through Little Italy on our way to the Storefront for Art & Architecture on Kenmare Street.

(Stills from the current show, On Mock-ups, Home Videos and Housekeeping: a video exhibition in 3 parts.)

We had brunch around the corner at Mexican Radio.

Afterward we walked up through Nolita to the East Village. Resurrection is one of the older vintage clothing stores around the city (there's one in LA too). They get really amazing pieces and the prices are kind of insane, but it's fun to see what they put in the windows.

Puch bike no.1 (Mott Street)

I still haven't been to the New Musem. We tried to go once but it was way too crowded.

We stopped by Rivington Arms to see the BARR show. More on that in a future post.

Puch bike no.2 (East 2nd Street)

Tokio7 is a more affordable vintage/consignment store on 7th Street in the East Village. Always worth a look but didn't find anything this time.

We stopped for a beer across the street at the Blue & Gold before heading down to Ludlow Street to meet up with my brother Sky and his friend Juliane at Motor City.

Julie Black was presiding over the bar and took great care of us. Do not miss her band Tall Black Girls at Lit on Saturday May 3rd, 10-11pm.

Motor City is a Detroit-themed bar. That sounds like it could be too kitschy or something but it's actually great—in fact, it's one of the few bars on the LES that I still really like. Even when it gets crowded it tends to be filled with quality individuals. But don't mess with Jenna:

Juliane, Sky, and Emily.

You sure make NY look good, my friend.

And thanks for reminding me about Motor City. I've had some late night fun there in the past...
