Thanksgiving is just around the corner, by far one of our favorite holidays. We are super psyched to be involved in the annual Thanksgiving fundraiser, Cranksgiving, this Saturday. Read more about it below!
FRIDAY & SATURDAY
slash and dash.
Known for being one of the only films that Gene Siskel walked out on, MANIAC, the gratuitously glory slasher picture from the 80's (with the added credit of being banned in some countries) will be playing the midnight show at Sunshine Cinema this Friday & Saturday. Bonus: the director, Bill Lustig, will be in attendance for an audience q&a. 143 E. Houston Street.
Cranksgiving 12 is going down this Saturday and we are thrilled to be among their official sponsors. What is Cranksgiving you ask? For twelve years running, the New York Bike Messenger Foundation has been convening with serious cyclists the weekend before thanksgiving to race & gather food for New York City's homeless population. All you need to participate is a bike, a lock, a bag, some cash and some courage. Registration begins at 2pm, the race kicks off at 3pm at Thompkins Square Park.
ANS if you donate $25 to the Foundation, we will give you $6 off any of our sandwiches!
Our friends at Anthology Film Archives are hosting a series of Cocteau films until the 21st, including one of our favorites by far, Beauty & the Beast. As Pauline Kael said: “[P]erhaps the most sensuously elegant of all filmed fairy tales. As a child escapes from everyday family life to the magic of a storybook, so, in the film, Beauty’s farm, with its Vermeer simplicity, fades in intensity as we are caught up in the Gustave Dore extravagance of the Beast’s enchanted landscape.…magnificent beast.” Stop by and tell us what you thought after!
Showing Saturday at 5:15. 32 Second Avenue.
And Sunday don't miss another Cocteau gem at Anthology Film Archives, the screening of 1950's Orpheus at 5pm.
With an exhausting and eclectic musical resume (including a stint with the Polyphonic Spree), Corn Mo has found its home in its own special brand of exuberant piano rock that is as infectious as it is quirky and upbeat. Catch him at the early show at Mercury Lounge this Sunday. Doors at 6:30, show at 8:30. 217 E. Houston.

Comprised of Ritzy Bryan, Rhydian Dafydd and Matt Thomas, the English trio The Joy Formidable create the kind of energetic sound that we crave at the end of the night as we rally to clean up before heading home. If you can rally on this sleepy grey day, stop by and see them play at The Bowery Ballroom tonight. The show starts at 8. Pop in and pre-game with us over one of our toasty, warm sammy's.

This weekend calls for more of this ridiculously beautiful late Autumn weather. With temperatures hovering in the 60's & sun filled, it's the perfect weather for a sandwich & a show or a stroll.

El Camino dreams.

Salon 94 Bowery, right next to the New Museum of Contemporary Art, is currently featuring a show by artist Liz Cohen. An (actual) German Tramant & a Chevy El Camino marry in the work Trabamintino. As far as we are concerned, basically anything involving an El Camino inside of a gallery will get us on board.

hide out with Godard.

a marathon picnic.
40,000 runners covering over 26 miles and all five boroughs, the ING New York City Marathon is an institution not to be missed. Cheer on your fellow New Yorker's and camp out with a cozy Tiny's picnic while you do. If you are among the brave & the strong running this Sunday, we recommend stopping by for a carb loading session Saturday.
