PLAN DATE: WEDS / JULY 17
Take a dip into performance art this evening at New Ohio Theatre where the annual Ice Factory Festival is currently underway. This Obie Award-winning festival (equivalent to the Oscars of performance art) has a female-centric lineup, with each of the seven shows having been directed by a woman. Indulge in 70-90 minute performances dedicated to activism and sexuality (Lordes), intimacy (Sex Play), or history (Songs About Trains). You’ll be sure to walk away with lots of things to talk about over dinner!
Next, head to Hudson Clearwater and grab a table in the delightfully lit backyard garden. Start with the goat cheese tortellini which is a small dish, but mighty in flavor, and the east coast oysters. The pork chop and steak are two crowd favorites which are both similarly modest but mighty. The staff at Hudson Clearwater are very friendly, so don’t feel rushed to leave this outdoor haven. Enjoy a nice Aperol spritz for dessert before heading back into the busy streets of NYC.
