THE SCOOP Hidden behind a graffiti covered door on N.Y.C.'s gritty Lower Eastside, this unique venue gives a whole new meaning to the words "dinner theater." Plan to see a circus act, burlesque show or some other twisted take on performance art if you go for the entertainmentwhich doesn't even get started until 1:30 am most nights. And while the venue holds up to 300 people, be prepared to get cozy with friends and strangers alike in the intimate space.
