NYC barbers plan a DJ, the bar is filled to celebrate the reopening



NYC barbers plan a DJ, the bar is filled to celebrate the reopening

Monday will be Very nice hair day in New York City!

Barbers and Big Apple salons are getting ready to go all out when the city enters Phase Two reopening of the closing coronavirus on Monday – with one owner even setting up a DJ booth and a bar to celebrate.

“The drink is ready. You can’t spell barbershop without a ‘bar,’ “said Alex Shamuelov, co-owner of Ace of Cuts barbershop in the East Village.

To bring the city back to life, he plans to offer customers drinks from a fully stocked bar in a shop on East 6th Street near Avenue A, and set up an outdoor DJ table, he said.

“Our customers cannot wait. They tell us how much they miss us. I can’t wait to see everyone, how much hair has grown on their heads, and what I will change into them. “

The much-awaited second reopening phase in the city – which also allows dining outdoors in restaurants, direct retail shopping, and open playgrounds – came not a minute too soon for some New Yorkers, who said they had been distracted by days days of constant bad hair.

“I have cut and taken care of the ends myself, but I did not do any style. This is a disaster, “said Elizabeth Short, a 22-year-old student in the East Village, whose brown shoulder-length hair became dry and difficult to manage.

“I was resigned enough to put it on a bun or ponytail,” he added. “I can’t wait to finally wear it and feel beautiful again.”

However, salon and salon owners must navigate the new coronavirus regulations. Chop shops can only be reopened at 50 percent capacity and customers must be kept six feet away from everyone except their stylist.

Tim Toohey, owner of the new NYC Public Image hybrid barbershop, said he had done “a million small things” such as buying hand sanitizers and masks for customers, along with rearranging the reception area to make more room for clients.

And he was “very excited” to finally start cutting the key at the West 27th Street studio in Chelsea – which was supposed to open in April but was delayed by a pandemic.

“I hear from people who can’t wait to fix the damaged hair that their spouse or friend is trying,” he said.

Another barber shop owner said they planned to separate the chair with a translucent plastic curtain at least six feet, and use registration sheets to encourage customers not to linger in business.

Meanwhile, Manhattan restaurant owners are getting ready for the return of the outdoor dinner.

Brendan McElroy, partner manager of the Irish pub Dymphna, is preparing five tables outside the business to anticipate more people traveling.

“This will basically provide a kind of place for a small number of customers to sit and enjoy a drink,” McElroy said in the watering hole, which serves pub grub on Avenue A near East Seventh Street. “All types return to their normal state, however small, very interesting at the moment.”

He added, “We have a carpenter at home who will make special flower boxes to attach the tables and to block road traffic, and make a small terrace.”

Other restaurant owners say they plan to change their normal eating practices to be safer from germs.

“New Yorkers want their social lives back … but their habits have changed. So for example we will not offer menus on the table, “said Paolo Rossi, one of the owners of the Giano restaurant on East Seventh Street in the East Village.

Instead, customers will be able to scan a barcode to access the menu on their cell phone to avoid touching anything that makes them uncomfortable, he said.

Omar Tawakol, managing partner at the Village East Horus Cafe hookah bar, said he planned to reopen with six to eight outside tables.

“We will keep it clean. “I have more than 250 hookahs, and I will make sure that no hookah is used twice on the same day, to eliminate any possibility of contamination,” he said. “Many bars went out of business during this pandemic … So people who are still in business, they are con artists.”

Preparations for the reopening came when Governor Andrew Cuomo said Sunday the New York state corona virus metric was “on the right track,” with less than one percent of the 67,526 tests carried out in New York state returning positive.

Under Phase 2 of the country’s reopening plan, car dealers and real estate services can also be opened, along with houses of worship with a 25 percent capacity.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
