••• October 9 at City Winery: Suzanne Vega plays a 25th-anniversary concert for her album Solitude Standing.
••• From a reader: “I talked a corporate group cruising Broadway with a map of planned 7-Elevens throughout Tribeca. ‘It’s coming,’ was all they had to say. So many 7-Eleven sites on their map!” I was talking to another reader the other day and she said how she and her husband shop at 7-Eleven all the time, because it’s so convenient. “Don’t do it!” I fairly yelled at her. “Move go the suburbs if that’s what you want!” Which was sort of unfortunate because we had just met. But still!
••• An update on the Asphalt Green petition on Change.org: “There was no mention of Asphalt Green at all during the board meeting, which surprised me as when I spoke to the BPCA office yesterday, AG was on the agenda. After about 30 minutes, the Board of Directors closed the session (non board members had to leave) to discuss some ‘litigation.’ I can only assume there is some kind of litigation that is holding this up.”
••• New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley will be at 92YTribeca on Oct. 17.
