    Although I am not a resident I will be visiting towards the end of November for my birthday, the 19th-24th to be exact... I'd love some bar/food/cool things to do recommendations if some of you NY'ers don't mind.

    I will be in NYC from Oct. 16th to the 25th. Any good places to eat?

    Regarding concerts, I already checked and the only one that I'm going to is Midnight Juggernauts @ Bowery Ballroom on Oct. 21.

    Thankfully I am going during a pretty busy concert week when I'm there. I will be attending the opening Pixies show at Hammerstein (on my birthday) and two Dirty Projectors shows at the Music Hall in Williamsburg.

    You are there during the busiest show week in New York (CMJ) and all you can muster is Midnight Juggernauts? Seriously?

    That is exactly why I came to this thread. So I can get some recommendations. I don't know 90% of the bands playing CMJ.

    But if you're going to be a jackass about it, go fuck yourself.

    Please prepare for my 2010 move to NY by telling me your favorite:
    • Indian
    • Pizza
    • Italian
    • Thai
    • Clubs with great music and that you can dance at without constantly being sexually harassed but still have an attractive clientèle in case you misplace your moral compass that night.
    • Bars

Sashay down the street a bit and hit up the large Indian grocery for some amazing products with fantastic packaging.

    Will get back to the others in a bit.

    There are tons of cheap and free shows on during CMJ. The passes get you in to everything, but most shows still sell tickets on the night.

    It's very likely I'll be in New York from the 25th of November to the 29th. Does anyone know of any good concerts or other eventsthat might be going on in that time span?

    Also, recommending places to eat in NY is incredibly difficult because it's so damn big and every place claims to be the "best _____ in New York".

    Also Brooklynvegan.com will let you know who's playing and does a comprehensive job.

    If you like Vanessa's Dumplings, you should also try Cafe Himalaya in the East Village on E 1st St. & 1 Ave. Majorly cheap (around $6 per person for dinner entrees), and the best thing on their menu is the momo (Tibetan dumplings). They're BYOB, and will let you sit forever and drink chai or whatnot if you so choose.

    Alchemy you should report back on that Dirty Projectors show. I will be seeing them at Bowery Ballroom because MHOW was sold out by the time I checked.

    I think you mean Performa, which I posted to the Art Thread, and then was reposted to the Noise Thread?

    Edit: here's the link to the Mike Kelley-curated two day experimental music component to the month long festival.

    Here's something I've always wondered: do people in NYC dine out more than others?

    If so, is it because it's difficult grocery shopping without a car, or maybe it's difficult to cook in such a small kitchen.

    How often, about, would you say you eat out (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) each week.

    I can tell you that I eat out maybe twice a week (Friday dinner and possibly a weekend lunch). I don't eat breakfast, I bring my lunch to work, and I cook nearly every single night.

    I'm just curious.

    I know a folks who have lived in Manhattan for years and have perfectly good kitchens that they have never even touched except maybe to make a pot of coffee or to reheat some leftovers. Friends who live in the outer boroughs tend to cook more for whatever reason -- I'm not sure if that's indicative of an overall trend.

    I think it's a combination of factors: grocery shopping is not that difficult, but there are just so so many good cheap takeout and delivery places in any neighborhood. And yes, I do think the smallness of the space means that less people will entertain in, and more will go out to meet others at a restaurant or bar.

    When I lived in Manhattan, I sure ate lot of takeout. But mostly that was because anytime I cooked, the smell would linger in my tiny apartment for days and days.
