Seen & Heard: “The Secret Lives of Edward Gorey”

••• On the way to the airport, I saw that signage is up for the Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee café inside the Roxy Hotel (so no pic).

••• The Tribeca Meet & Greet, organized by the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a meeting “at the office of Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer on Wednesday, March 9, anytime between 6:30 and 9 p.m. Since this is a city building (which closes at 5:30 p.m.) it is imperative that you RSVP to and please bring photo ID for admittance. As always this event is free and welcomes anyone with an interest in Lower Manhattan.”

••• From April 29 through May 22 at HERE in Soho: Life Jacket Theatre Company‘s production of Gorey: The Secret Lives of Edward Gorey by Travis Russ. “A lyrical, funny, and introspective look at the life of the artist, Gorey features three actors portraying the artist at different times in his life.” I’m reminded, painfully, of the time I had a chance to buy a Gorey original and passed for lack of funds.

••• Añejo‘s downstairs bar, Abajo, is getting a reboot starting next Friday, March 11, with new food and drink menus, and it’ll be open from 6 p.m. Tuesday Wednesday through Saturday, with DJs on Friday and Saturday.

••• Fans of the Cricketers Arms can apparently find the same food and staff at Barleycorn.

  1. Went to the Barleycorn for the first time last week and was very pleasantly surprised. The place is huge but is set up in sections so it doesn’t feel too big. There was music Friday night from 7-10. It was a guy with a guitar and he was very good. I highly recommend the sausage rolls. The pizza looked really good too so I want to go back and try that. I am not sure whether or not they deliver.
