We Like The Fully-Stocked Bar Part


City Scoops magazine has a nice profile on 92YTribeca and it’s birth from our Makor center. And we’re not sure we could have said it any better than Larry Getlen did in his piece:

If you live in New York, selecting your Saturday night entertainment means sorting through a brain-blasting selection of virtually every possible sort of intellectual, cultural, or hedonistic diversion. Picture if you will, on a recent Saturday night, the following options. Chatting with friends in a quiet cafe, eating wasabi tuna deviled eggs and sipping coffee or wine, or in that same cafe but with singer/songwriter serenades as you partake in your culinary delights. In a larger theater, complete with fully-stocked bar, enjoying an acoustic set from the indie rock favorite who once released a song called “Bill Gates Must Die,” John Vanderslice. Laughing along to a stand-up set by State/Stella favorite Michael Showalter. Taking in an exhibit of cartoon art. Or — in case this menu wasn’t well-rounded enough for you — marveling at a screening of an independent film called “Viva,” a parody of seventies sexploitation films featuring a pair of lead actresses for whom shirts appear to be a luxury, and dialogue so intentionally overwrought you can almost hear the actors giggling in their own minds.

At 92YTribeca, a brand new cultural/community center at 200 Hudson St., these activities were all on offer at their October 18 opening celebration, a grand display of the new facility’s versatility and diversity.

Check it out yourself. In the next few days, you can choose from a Backstage Tour of The Simpsons with Mike Reiss, Lyricist Lounge Presents...The Foundation Album Release Showcase, Mashable NextUp NYC: Lessons From the Local Internet Startup Community or our much anticipated event, Print vs. Blog: The Many Faces of Cultural Journalism. If you really want to get an idea of upcoming events, you should look at 92YTribeca’s website yourself and browse the comprehensive programming.
