MIDTOWN— The Peninsula Hotel is announcing the arrival of their new "romantic" rooftop bar Salon de Ning, opening on May 16: "Offering panoramic views over 5th Avenue and the glittering skyline of Manhattan, Salon de Ning features an intimate interior bar with an eclectic art collection, complemented by two large outdoor terraces with Chinese-style day beds for relaxing and taking in the stunning views...Moroccan lanterns will cast a romantic glow on the terraces as the sun begins to set. A range of signature cocktails and Asian-inspired light fare will be offered at Salon de Ning." [EaterWire]

RED HOOKSixpoint Craft Ales lets in DBTH on all their latest 'green' efforts: "After being used for brewing beer, all of our spent grain is used to feed livestock on Long Island. We buy used/recycled kegs, especially our 5 gallon soda kegs, which are normally thrown out for scrap. We also don't bottle our beer, so there's no wasteful packaging...We recycle the heat energy from the boiling process of the wort and use it to heat tap water for use in the next day’s brew." [DBTH]
