Okay so I’ve only been to one of the twelve places included on this list (Marie’s Crisis, which is super close to Adafruit HQ in NYC). However, I feel like the best part about this list is it’s making me think of the so many different music/food joint combos that are missing from it (I can think of about 10 I’ve visited in just Ireland alone – Hairy Lemon Pub in Dublin, Tigh Coili in Galway, and at least a handful in Harlem – Silvana is a personal fave, and that’s just off the top of my head). Anyway, if you love listening to live music while you grab a bite, check out this fun post from Atlas Obscura Lists.
But sometimes, music at restaurants is more than cover for loud conversations and chewing. At these restaurants and bars, the music is the point, whether that means making a stop at Organ Stop Pizza for a slice and some organ music, or toasting the geriatric jazz maestros at the Peace Hotel in Shanghai. These 12 joints make up a global symphony of melodic machines, jazz in every venue imaginable, and a whole lot of Broadway balladeers. All that, and a side of fries.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
