Make that a double. This week's Shot Of The Week features chef Simon Lange of Brooklyn's Apartment 138 luxuriating in the mellowness that is Key West, with what was clearly a magical drink in hand. These pics were shot by Ian Rowan on his Nokia Xpress , which puts the iPhone camera to shame.
This SOTW was taken downstairs at Santos Party House after the euphoric Washed Out show. Good review in the NYT here, and you can preview and purchase the Life Of Leisure EP here and buy it on vinyl here.
Some letters from readers who display admirable commitment to the Upper West Side's old school Irish bar The Dublin House and read our post about the establishment's name check in Mad Men.
Jason, if you go back far enough (circa 1981) you might remember the
Knights of Columbus sign the hung just west of the entrance (and east
of Woolworth's). Myself and a couple of other classmates from Calhoun
are the reason it's no longer there.
I remember when there were individual lights in the booths on the back room. UGH
And what may be the greatest reader's letter I've ever seen:
The DH is my sanctuary.... I met my wife there on a blind date 5 years
ago, got engaged there 5 years later - now 5 years later, my wife is
"with child".... I'm trying to negotiate that we have the birth in the
back room and baptism there to follow a year after that.
Not that kind of shot, for once. Out inaugural SOTW comes from Jeffrey Morgenthaler of Portland's Clyde Common, who tweeted this photo with the caption "This is what your Irish whiskey shelf looks like after the Pogues drop by the restaurant for dinner".
