1. Smith and Mills, 71 N. Moore St.
Ok, we admit this gorgeous little cocktail paradise situated in a former carriage house will probably be irritatingly full of industry types (you know, grown men in sports coats wearing baseball caps), but if you can manage to grab a spot, just let yourself sink into one of their classic cocktails and all your troubles will disappear (except for the guys in sports coats and baseball caps).
2. Square Diner, 33 Leonard St.
While those of Weinsteinian mien will be arguing over elbowroom at Nobu, why not just grab a paper and settle into this classic diner? The staff is friendly and absolutely unpretentious, and the huge portions of food would probably outlast the entire Sunday Times.
3. Nancy Whiskey Pub, 1 Lispenard St.
The classic bar with half a floor! The lopsided indoor shuffleboard is one of many significant draws at this Tribeca institution. Others include a friendly, generous bunch of bartenders (unless you’re a dick), cheap and plentiful beer, and… well, what else do you really need?
4. apexart, 291 Church St.
Moving images are cool, but sometimes your eyes need a few moments to focus on something that’s fixed and still. Art! Apex’s current exhibition is a fun collection put together by original funster Dave Eggers! Fun! Featuring work by greats like Basquiat, R. Crumb, Henry Darger, David Shrigley, Ralph Steadman and Kurt Vonnegut.
