Manhattan -- off the beaten path

The NYTimes travel section has a short article each week about travel/tourism in NYC. This one was a good one about tourists searching out "off the beaten path" experiences:

Here's my cool thing to do in NYC these days. Birdland, 44 west of 8th Ave., right in the theatre district. 10 pm Monday, "Cast Party." Comfortable and well laid out Jazz venue hosts an assortment of cabaret singers, Broadway and Off-Broadway performers and other musical odds and ends continuously until 2 a.m.
Again, comfortable room, reliable reasonable kitchen serving till 1. Walking into a club that's packed at 10 pm on a Monday and hearing these singers and musicians? You won't have this experience any place else but NYC.
Yeah there's a cover , I think it $10, but check.

Birdland, part two. Fridays, 5:15-7pm. The Birdland Big Band
Hear some of New York's best musicians playing exciting original arrangements (maybe they'll play "Birdland"),. $20 cover.Grab some dinner while you there, then head to whatever Broadway show you have tickets for. If it's a musical, there's a good chance some of the musicians you just heard at Birdland will be playing in the orchestra pit at your theater. Reservations are a good idea.

neal, I confess I was a real regular at Birdland's (Jim Carusa's) Cast Party on Monday nights whenever in New York. Then I discovered a somewhat similar event at the Laurie Beechman -- 42nd near 9th on Friday nights. Even more fun and generally better singers. And I never have to watch that old man with the portable tap dance board. Have you been to that one?

NeoPatrick,
I never heard of it till I read a previous post about it (I think you wrote it). I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the heads up.
