Seen & Heard: Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine Shut Down by the DOH

••• Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine on Chambers was shut down by the Department of Health. James sent over the sanitary violations:

1) Hot food item not held at or above 140º F.
2) Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas.
3) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
4) Accurate thermometer not provided in refrigerated or hot holding equipment.
5) Non-food contact surface improperly constructed. Unacceptable material used. Non-food contact surface or equipment improperly maintained and/or not properly sealed, raised, spaced or movable to allow accessibility for cleaning on all sides, above and underneath the unit.

••• The infamous Fyre Festival was based at 52 Lispenard. Good luck getting that money back. (Thanks to @eveisapisces for the photo.)

••• Neat kites by Haptic Lab at Canal Street Market through the end of this month. And check out its quilts online.

••• From Crista Samaras, founder of a new “experimental space,” 2A, that’s affiliated with the Hal Bromm Gallery: “As a creative person and lover of people making all kinds of stuff (art, music, poetry, sounds, smells, etc) and as a person who has built communities, I am looking to slowly build one that wants to engage. I want people to come here hoping to be shaken a bit in some way. I want them to want the reward of the experience of being challenged. We are starting by featuring a great guy who paints political pieces, pairing him with a strong guitar sound, some musk scents, and good wine. We will have new shows about every two months designed around the experience during the event. We hope to generate a loyal following of people interested in being in the conversation.”

••• If you missed Manifesto—Julian Rosefeldt’s video art installation with Cate Blanchett in 13 roles—at the Park Avenue Armory, you can now see a 95-minute supercut (supercate?) at the Film Forum. Blanchett is amazing, of course, but what I didn’t expect were the extraordinary locations, some of which are on view in the trailer.
