No Name @ WORD UP, a series programmed and hosted by Eric Vetter

September 27: “No Name OPENS UP” (Heights/Inwood folks get their Words Up)

Host Eric Vetter is co-founder of long-running, LES-based, comedy/variety show No Name . . . & a Bag O’ Chips. The show is a “workout show,” wherein talented performers are encouraged to play and try out new material. The audience is invited to hang out afterward to share feedback and shoot the breeze. Notable past guests include Christian Finnegan, Hannibal Buress, Tom Shillue, Jim Mendrinos, Marilyn Torres, Leighann Lord, Ophira Esienberg, and many, many more. In addition to the flagship “Bag O’ Chips” show, Vetter now oversees other No Name incarnations, including “No Name presents:The Uptown Caberet” (a singers’ workout show in Inwood), “No Name @ The Kilt” (a headliner comic showcase, also in Inwood), and “Jazz w/ A Touch of No Name” (a jazz-&-comedy show in Brooklyn). He is very proud to have No Name’s first full-fledged reading series here, uptown @ Word Up!

Sleek modern furniture and light fixtures. Free Wi-Fi. Comfy colorful, upholstered chairs. Upbeat music in the background.

You call this a McDonald’s?

Washington Heights has become the city’s second neighborhood to get a new look, European-style McDonald’s and residents are thrilled.

“It’s comfortable. It feels like home. You feel good. You feel like a family here,” said Frank Reynoso, 70, while enjoying his morning coffee and reading the Daily News at the new W. 159th St. and Broadway location, which opened last week and had an official ribbon-cutting yesterday.

“It’s something new in town. The ambience is different – very modern; the decor is very nice. This is more up-to-date,” said Reynoso, recalling wobbly and noisy metal chairs from the McDonald’s that used to be across the street.

“I think the people are going to love it. The feeling is different, even the music,” he said, sitting under a modern light fixture in a comfy upholstered chair while LMFAO’s upbeat song “Party Rock Anthem” played.

The popular fast food chain opened a similar McDonald’s in Chelsea nearly two years ago, and decided to bring the new look to upper Manhattan.

via Washington Heights is ‘lovin’ it’: McDonald’s wins over upper Manhatta neighborhood with new decor.

Apt 78 is once again taking it back and digging into the old-school Latin Music vault for some serious classic Merengue, Salsa, Bachata and Perico Ripiao. DJ Smalls will be doing the honors, drink specials and a live band – what more could you ask for? If you want a taste of what to expect see below for a video of the first Latin Classics event at Apt 78 after the DR Parade.

In these troubled economic times what says America more than a yard sale.

Deals, steals, antiques and apparel – all treasure and no trash. Make sure you stop by; you might just find what you didn’t even know you were looking for.
