DELICIOUS DEBUTS
Chalk Point Kitchen Brings in Guests Via Twitter



Have you ever heard of a NYC restaurant that doesn’t have a website or even a way to preview the menu beforehand?

Enter Chalk Point Kitchen, a new Soho restaurant from Executive Chef Joe Isidori and restaurateur Matt Levine. Isidori, from the late Carroll Gardens spot, Arthur on Smith, has described the new restaurant's menu as having a strong focus on “organic vegetables, seafood, and local produce.” Too bad that is the only information you’ll get about the menu--that is, unless you check it out in person.

This is the news that lots of women have been waiting for! It has been announced that Magic Mike XXL, a sequel to the 2012 film, will be released in theaters on July 3rd, 2015. The sequel will see the guys going on a road trip.

Channing Tatum, who is co-writing the movie, recently spoke to MTV about the sequel. “We want to have real, like reality in it, but we don't want to make like some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last movie and I think it surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want to have a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a shit ton of fun,” Tatum said.

As far as which of the guys will be back for the sequel Tatum said, “I think everyone's gonna be back, I think, and obviously nobody's deals are done.”

Since the director of the first film, Steven Soderbergh, has since retired from directing, Greg Jacobs will step in to helm the movie.

Album Review & Interview: Sultan Bathery

Let’s switch it up just this once, and JUDGE a book by its cover. Sultan Bathery's just-released debut album is exceptional on more than one level, it's cover art nothing short of spectacular. Paired with an addicting collection of kaleidoscopic, bright, spacey accents, with surprisingly insightful lyrics, Slovenly Recordings has got a win-win.

The album begins with the fast-paced, fuzz-filled “Satellite,” a brilliant blend of garage-pop and surf-rock. “Satellite” is an ironically happy sounding track about a drug overdose. “My friend Mike has left his body, and he won't be here for you,” chants frontman Giovanni Ongaro, “He doesn't know where he's going...Mom and dad can't stop crying, and he laughs from the top, he doesn't know where he's going...” It's a risky move to start with such a dark tune, but Sultan Bathery manages to disguise the pain with chipper, dance-worthy instrumentals.
