PLAN DATE: WEDS / FEB. 27
For an evening of fresh takes, start at the newly-opened Takeshi—a new omakase sushi spot by chef Takeshi Sato, whose love of heavy metal and boxing brought him to NYC. Seated in front of Takeshi himself, your meal will be creatively crafted before your eyes in the small and intimate space. Choose between an eight-course or sixteen-course omakase (from the Japanese phrase “I’ll leave it up to you”). Each course is simply plated, allowing you to focus on the flavors.
After dinner, head over to Canal Street Market for the Hack City Comedy Show. Hosted by comics Fumi Abe and Michael Nguyen, this jam is one of NYC’s most diverse comedy shows. Come early to grab a seat and enjoy complimentary OWL Brew samples. Then sit back, and get ready for a night of laughs with performances by rising and established comics from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and Comedy Central. You can RSVP here. If you can’t make tonight’s show, it runs once a month until May.
