Seen & Heard: Janelle Monáe at the Winter Garden

••• Janelle Monáe will perform at the Friends of Hudson River Park’s Spring Fling on April 29 in the Winter Garden. (Tickets start at $350.) I’d like to see Mark Ronson work some magic with her.

••• Falafellas is opening a second branch at 23 John; the first is at Eighth and 38th. Pic by M.M. De Voe. How do you say the name? Falafellas? Falafellas?

  1. Any idea what Nike has going on at the old voce di space at 45 grand? The signs say by appointment only but the (rude) girl at the door says no appointments.

    • No clue…. No one at Nike has every given me the time of day when I’ve asked questions about the tented events they’ve done at Canal and Varick, so I’m not thinking it’s worthwhile to try and ask. I imagine it’ll come out in time.
