Christy Dusablon checks in with her weekly exhibit, chef and theater picks for this week’s art dating and matchmaking
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is showing an exhibit titled Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy through September 1st, which explores the symbolic and metaphorical associations between the superhero and fashion. Featuring movie costumes, avant-garde couture, and high-performance sportswear, the show reveals how the superhero serves as a prime example for fashion and its ability to empower and transform the human figure.
After the museum, head over to Gabriel’s Bar and Restaurant for some delicious eats! The casual-yet-elegant restaurant has a menu sure to get anyone’s mouth watering. The spinach and potato gnocchi tossed in a tomato sauce was the first thing to catch my eye, but certainly not the last.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for a little jazz. This weekend, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Lincoln Center is featuring Lee Konitz Quintet with Peter Bernstein, Dan Tepfer, Ray Drummond and Matt Wilson. There are only two available sets (at 7:30 and 9:30 pm), so don’t miss out on all the good fun!
