FREE Pancakes Today and the Peggy Lee of Punk: Phat Man Dee

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

So today is National Pancake Day!!  This means that you should go to an IHOP and fill up on your FREE short stack of buttermilk pancakes.  Offer good from 7am '“ 10pm today only.  The one catch is that they ask you to consider making a small donation to support a local charity.  (I assume you define the amount of 'œsmall.')  Check out the website for locations and more details.

IHOP’s that might be near you:

Downtown, Brooklyn – 276 Livingston Street
(B,M,Q,R to DeKalb; 2,3,4,5 to Nevins St; A,C,G to Hoyt-Schermerhorn; or F to Bergen)

Jackson Heights, Queens – 73-01 Northern Blvd.
(R,V to 65th St. or 7,E,F,R,V to Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Ave '“ 74th St-Broadway)


Some call her the 'œPeggy Lee of Punk.' Others refer to her as 'œa cosmic jazz chanteuse.'  Whatever your preference, Phat Man Dee is an eclectic, comedic burlesque inspired jazz diva.  With her soulful voice and her heart-ripping way of sharing stories in song, she is a lady with a weird, clear vision.  A native of Philly, Phat Man Dee will be gracing New York with her presence tonight.

Acompanied by pianist Kenny Peagler. Phat Man Dee’s most recent project was How to Survive the Apocalypse, a Burning Opera, which sold out a month long run at San Francisco’s Teatro Zinzanni. She’s also appeared with Foxy Moxy’s Cabaret Risque, the Boiler Bar Stage at the Maker’s Faire, The Neverwas Haul Exposition Stage in the Black Rock Desert, the lovely LA River, The Madagascar Institute of Brooklyn, NY, Candye Kane, the Goddess Perlman’s Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad, the Fat Bottomed Girls Burlesque Review, Chicken John’s Circus Ridiculous, Wolgemut, Jazz Mandolin Project, the Bindlestiff Family Roadshow, The Bull Seal! Collective, Seemen, the Flaming Lotus Girls and Heavy Pedal Cyclecide.

Danielle Levanas - Bargain Soul Huntress

Danielle was raised by a pack of coyotes in the Los Angeles hills. Since arriving in NY in 2001, she has had any number of strange jobs, including back-up singing for JELVIS (the Jewish Elvis), starting the non-profit LYDIA, and writing political cabarets. A huge advocate for travel as a way of life, you can find her at the Brooklyn Public Library when her bank account is empty, fantasizing about where to head off to next.
