Seen & Heard: Learn to Be the Complete Tribecan

449 washington••• 449 Washington looks nice from the front. The south side is a bit menacing, no? (It’s blacker than in this photo.) Maybe they don’t care, because it’s a question of time till the adjacent lot gets developed…?

••• Do you find yourself wishing you could be smarter, with a sharper skillset, but you just can’t make it happen on your own? You know you could take a class, but there are so many, and how can you tell which one is right for you? While you ponder these questions, of course, your life is slipping away. Now, however, is the chance of a lifetime—the opportunity to be the complete Tribecan. “Ever wonder how we make our popular Kale Salad?” emailed Tiny’s & the Bar Upstairs. “Sign up with a friend and learn the secret to preparing the ultimate Kale Salad in our very first workshop! As part of the workshop you will receive a step-by-step interactive tutorial on how to make this Tiny’s longtime favorite, while feasting on a selection of appetizers paired with some of our favorite wines.” It’s Saturday, April 26, 1-4 p.m.; you can reserve by calling 212-374-1137 or emailing at The cost is $75 (plus state tax), but if it were twice that–quintuple that!—would it be any less worth it?

••• Matt Lewis from Baked says they’re hoping to open the Tribeca outpost by July 1. In the meantime, he’s trying to track down pix of when the space was Harmony Burlesque. Do you have any? Know anyone who was involved? Email and I’ll pass it along.

Friends of Tribeca Park••• Don Thomas sent over an invite for “the first Spring Meeting of the nascent Friends of Tribeca Park. We need volunteers of all sorts. Gardening, organization, outreach, and fundraising, are all on our agenda.” Don’t assume city funds keep our parks looking good.

••• Franklin Place has left its sales office at 104 Franklin—so now that big, beautiful storefront is available. I hear that it’s “dry” only—no restaurants allowed.

••• Nish Nush has started offering jachnun on the weekends: “It’s a Yemeni  Jew traditional brunch,” said owner Eyal Hen. “Rolled dough slow-cooked overnight, served with tomato harissa, salad, egg, and labane. It’s something to die for. Limited quantity!”

••• Luka Bloom is playing City Winery on May 19. Here’s his incomparable version of LL Cool J’s “I Need Love.” (If you enjoy that, watch this, too.)
