That photo I took of Cosmopolitan Café‘s new menu is already out of date. Here’s the updated menu, which someone—who must work there, right?—emailed over. Click to enlarge.

••• The Obama administration has pretty much given up on holding the 9/11 trial in Manhattan—yes!—but other obstacles remain. (The New York Times)
••• On Thursday, debris from the under-construction Liberty Green and Liberty Luxe buildings landed on the Battery Park City Ice Rink, forcing its closing for the afternoon. (Broadsheet Daily)
••• ReadyMade magazine profiles George and Jacqueline Schmidt of Screech Owl Design; Jacqueline is the creative director of Moomah. The story isn’t online, but you can learn how to make one of Moomah’s most-excellent dioramas.

••• The Flea Theater‘s next production will be Girls in Trouble by “playwright provocateur” Jonathan Reynolds: “Girls in Trouble takes on abortion in the sixties, when backrooms in the wrong part of town offered hope or death, as well as abortion in the twenty first century. In 2010, has abortion become merely another form of birth control?” (Um, “merely”? As opposed to what?)
••• On Friday and Saturday, Feb. 5–6, “musician, composer, director and actor” Guy Davis will be playing the blues at Tribeca Performing Arts Center.
••• Wallace Stroby will read from, discuss, and sign Gone ‘Til November at Mysterious Bookshop on Friday, Feb. 5, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
••• The next Tribeca Meet & Greet will be 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at Body & Mind Builders. While the aim is generally for local business owners to network, anyone who wants to come is welcome—including, this go round, children. No speeches, arts-and-crafts classes (for kids), free wine from Frankly Wines (not for the kids), snackage, and interesting conversation. Come!
