UD - Blind Barber’s in the Burg Now

LEADING THE BLIND

Blind Barber’s in the Burg Now

Blind Barber. The name alone evokes images of perfect ear-lowerings and the refreshing pints that follow. You know... because it’s a barbershop with a bar attached. Anyway, they’ve also got a whole operation in Williamsburg now. The only place where beer and scissors together is a fantastic idea.

Now open, Blind Barber, 524 Lorimer St (at Ainslie), Brooklyn, 718-599-2435

UD - Warhol’s Most Wanted in Queens

THE LONG ’HOL

Warhol’s Most Wanted in Queens

In 1964, the World’s Fair (hosted by Queens) commissioned art from Andy Warhol. He painted giant murals of America’s 13 most wanted criminals. They rejected them. (Great move, 1964 World’s Fair.) Now the murals are back at the Queens Museum for you to art-date it up. So please, go easy on Andy’s work.
411:
Apr 27-Sep 7, 13 Most Wanted Men at the Queens Museum, New York City Building, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Flushing, 718-592-9700
