Show: Cougars This mean-ass local rock band comes out of hibernation for the Rock and Wrestling Supershow, organized by EGO Pro Wrestling. “Cougars play so hard it sometimes seems like they’re parodying hard rock, which to my mind makes them a perfect match for a sport that can’t decide if it’s parodying itself,” writes Monica Kendrick.

Dinner: Macello Executive chef-partner Giovanni DeNigris (Trattoria Trullo) showcases the rustic cucina and robust wines of Puglia in his exposed-brick dining room, a former meatpacking warehouse, and pizzas are a good bet under the hands of chef Gino Losacco, who mans the central wood-burning brick oven.
