About the Author | Jesse & GregWe earn our living selling New York City. The next day is never like the last. The last is never ordinary. We witness all sorts. We listen to the City’s noise. We devour its phenomenal food. On the Real is our documentary. It is your pack of unfiltered New York 100s.
Weather’s been sort of blue this week, hasn’t it? Gray, rainy, wistful. Thought we’d dig into the back catalogue for something to suit this weekend’s mood. If you don’t have it already, check out an album called Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim. Recorded in 1967, this seductive recording is the bluest, softest, sexiest, glass-of-scotchiest Sinatra album ever. The entire album is unquestionably lush and gorgeous. If you’re trying to set a tone on a rainy evening, you can’t go wrong. Only have time for a quick listen? Check out the tracks “Insensatez” and “Dindi.”
Seems like the perfect day for some afternoon drinking and Phebe’s at the corner of 4th and Bowery is the downtown’s perfect choice. Tell bartender Gina that neighbor Greg sent you. Maybe she’ll make it a double!
