The Starving Artist’s Directory

This is the directory. It’s huge, and it took me a long time to put together. If you ever need to find any place around New York City that is cool, you’ll probably be able to find it here. I’m currently doing a few things, as always, including but not limited to: brewing a batch of strawberry Octoberfest, working on some songs to play at Path Cafe’s Thursday Open Mic night, editing a super secret project of which details will be released very soon, finishing up final edits for the 2011 Starving Artist’s Guide Addendum, and some other stuff too. I’m also going to update the LINKS section of this site this week. Stay tuned!
