One of our favorite pop-up projects of the year, Dacha 46, will be serving their Eastern European food at Ursula in Crown Heights on Friday, August 13th. Stop by from 4-8pm for chicken and celery root skewers, sweet corn cherry plombir cake, and khachapuri pelmeni filled with four different cheeses and topped with salmon roe.

Once again, NYC summer weather has decided that no deodorant will suffice. If you want some good old-fashioned air-conditioned fun, check out a new karaoke bar in Koreatown called Ms. Kim’s. It’s a bit more upscale than other places where you might belt “Torn,” by Natalie Imbruglia in a soundproof private room, with cocktails and Korean and Japanese bar snacks. Not feeling karaoke?
