New Place to Dine and Drink Pre-Show

I love it when new boites open in Soho and the West Village, especially when the are so close to the Soho Playhouse, where my long-running Off-Broadway comedy show plays every Saturday night at 11:00 pm. The latest addition to the neighborhood is Bar Ciccio Alimentari, open on Sixth Avenue in an underground spot that was formerly part of an antiques row. The place is charming and a perfect spot for a pre-show drink or dinner.

The menu is so good it’s hard to choose what to have. You can’t go wrong with the salami or the mushroom polenta. Or try one of the mouth-watering pastas — ricotta and spinach ravioli, pappardelle wiht lamb ragu or spaghetti with clams. And wash that down with a glass of wine or beer. And, you’re only about 100 steps from Soho Playhouse. Two weeks ago, we had a huge group from the show go to Bar Ciccio Alimentari, and they raved about their experience.

Best SoHo Bars: The Brooklyneer

Categories: Latest News
Posted: March 22, 2012

While I’m a huge fan of the bar at Soho Playhouse’s Huron Club, where I perform my mostly one-man comedy show – Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer – every Saturday night, the surrounding neighborhood has many other bars to recommend.
One of my favorites is The Brooklyneer, located on West Houston just across the street from Film Forum, which I wrote about as one of my best New Year’s experiences.
The Mascot and I recently stopped by The Brooklyneer. As we admired the Brooklyn Bridge mural in the background, we were our usual demure, wallflower selves.

In no time, we had made a few new friends. Not only is the bar friendly, so are its first rate customers.

Go to The Brooklyneer. Order some of its tasty concoctions, and I promise you won’t be disappointed. And you won’t drink alone.

Five Things to Do in SoHo This Weekend | March 9 – 11, 2012

Categories: Latest News
Posted: March 8, 2012

SoHo is one of New York’s most vibrant neighborhoods, nestled between the West Village and TriBeCa. Filled with former factories that have been turned into fashion stores, restaurants and boutiques, SoHo is a must visit for most tourists and a frequent cultural destination for New Yorkers. It is also home to my Off-Broadway comedy show,Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer.
This upcoming weekend, March 9 through 11, 2012, take full advantage of all SoHo has to offer. Here are five can’t miss things to do:
5) The Three Seagulls, or MASHAMASHAMASHA at HERE. One of downtown’s premiere theater, HERE presents the ultimate Chekhovian mash-up with over 24 actors.
4) Doc Wasabassco’s BURLESQUE at City Winery. Right after my show, Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer, wraps late on Saturday night, head one block west and take in all that is wild and woolly. Get a taste of what New York used to be with this riveting burleque show.
3) Final Weekend to catch Alec Soth’s Broken Manual Exhibition at Sean Kelly. See Broken Manual, the exhibition of Soth’s photographs from 2006 through 2010. Beautiful and haunting, the photographs focus on men who have withdrawn from society. Something we would all like to do from time to time.

2) Geek Week at Housing Works Bookstore. Geeking out has never been this cool. Add sci fi, fantasy, comics, vintage vinyl, science and math books to your collection, and save 30% through March 12th. And support venerable non-profit Housing Works.
Geek Week
1) Bossa Nova Brunch at S.O.B.’s. The legendary club is home to raucous parties many nights of the week, but on Sunday afternoons, $28.99 gets you a three-course menu and open sangria bar as well as live music by the Nanny Assis Trio. Knock back enough sangria, jump on the dance floor and forget you’ve got to head back to the 9 to 5 on Monday.
