Nonsense NYC

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.
-Samuel Johnson
Modern corollary: Dude, it was 4:20 hours ago, now put the bong down and get out of your apartment, you're in New York.

The weekly newsletter called Nonsense NYC tracks "independent art, weird events, strange happenings, unique parties, and senseless culture in New York City." It comes out every Thursday night and gives you a badass Baedeker to off-off-mainstream events for the coming week. Makes MUG look so uncool. We tip our hat.
Versace, 645 5th [52nd] 12th flr. 212.813.0190. 5/11-5/15, Tu, We 11-3, Th-Sa 11-6. Cash only for up to 60% off men's and women's ready-to-wear.

Patti Rose, 124 E. 58th [Park/Lex] 212.861.2369. Tomorrow and Wednesday, huge savings on handbags from Prada, Chanel, Gucci as well as clothing and accessories from Pucci, D & G, Peter Som, and others. Sizes 2-14, V and MC, no men admitted.

You know the senators are furious when Lindsey Graham, (Lindsey Graham!) on "Meet the Press" sends a message, not once, but twice to Dick Cheney:

Sen. Graham: Well, something that was said, attributed to the vice president—I don't know if it's true or not—really bothers me. Says, "Get off his back." Senator Warner's hearing is not being on Secretary Rumsfeld's back. The hearing we're going to have Tuesday is not being on Secretary Rumsfeld's back. The Congress has an independent duty to find out what happened in that prison. It affects us all. So the vice president's comments, I don't know if they actually came from him or not, is just as inappropriate as calling for the resignation of the secretary and politicizing this even before he testifies. Nobody's on their back. We're doing our job.

and later:

Sen. Graham: Secretary Rumsfeld's resignation may happen, it may not. That's not the focus. And as to the White House, please don't say things like you should get off his back. Nobody is on his back.
