(Photo: High Line Hotel’s Facebook page.)

The folks behind Smorgasburg, Berg’n and Brooklyn Flea are opening a “garden restaurant” at the High Line Hotel, in Chelsea. 180 Tenth was set to unveil its menu to friends and family this evening, but the private preview has been canceled due to the rain.

According to an invite, those lucky enough to have landed on the guest list to tomorrow’s preview will be treated to some “delicious, fresh, simple” food courtesy of head chef Aaron Taber, who has previously worked at Grindhaus and June Wine Bar. Cocktails, natural wine and frozen drinks will be served by Berg’n general manager Jen Watson, who will be the director of food and drink at 180 Tenth.

Kevin Beasley

At 6pm this evening, tomorrow, and Thursday on the 12th Avenue Overlook of the High Line, sculptural artist Kevin Beasley wants you to stop and smell the roses — and while you’re at it, give them a good listen, too. To assist you with this sensory challenge, Beasley spent his summer months traversing the old West Side Line track, recording sounds – “natural, human, and machine” – that he’ll present tonight as “Untitled Stanzas: Staff/Un/Site.”

At Cuomo’s ‘Marijuana Listening Session,’ High Hopes For Legalization

(photo: Cassidy Dawn Graves)

When Governor Cuomo’s office announced a series of statewide “marijuana listening sessions” to get community feedback when drafting legislation for legal adult use, many rushed to make jokes; the name conjured images of stoned people jamming to records. But recreational cannabis use was one of the last things on the minds of those at last night’s Manhattan session. Rather, the two-hour event at BMCC’s Tribeca Performing Arts Center was rife with dialogue surrounding the potentials and risks this type of historic legalization could bring, and how New York might be able to get it right.

I might paint myself as sort of a lame if I say this, but I was slightly, completely terrified of what was going to transpire at the most recent iteration of an event that fell into my pipe (you could say) through the social media supply chain. You see, word on the street was this wasn’t just any underground comedy show on a rooftop in Bushwick, but a “#420 infused” vegan supper club and local standup showcase where you could pay $30 to feast on thoughtfully prepared food and specialty cocktails that you won’t find in any bar in the city (at least, not on the menu).

‘Democracy Dies in Dampness’: Massive Lines, Broken Scanners, Epic Waits to Vote in Soggy NYC

(Photo via @dagesjuvelierkeates on Instagram)

If you thought the line for a last-minute Halloween costume was as bad as it got, you may have learned otherwise when you headed to the polls this morning. As if the soggy weather wasn’t bad enough, New Yorkers reported downed scanners and waits of up to four hours. (Gonna need those free drinks!) Even Mayor de Blasio had to wait in line; he emerged from his Brooklyn polling location calling for voting reform and saying “NYC deserves so much better.” The state Attorney General’s office announced that as of 3:30pm, it had received roughly 100 complaints about New York City poll sites with broken scanners. Here’s a look at this morning’s carnage in the B+B area.
