Gary Pini
1. The highest Korean restaurant in the world, Gaonnuri, opens at 5 p.m. tomorrow, September 25, on the 39th floor of 1250 Broadway.  And, yes, that's just down the street from PAPER's world headquarters on 32nd Street in Manhattan.  Let's do lunch! [via Gaonnuri NYC]

2. The Jonas Brothers told Billboard Magazine that they are hard at work on a new album and are "about 10 or 11 songs in, probably close to some sort of body of music."  No word on a release date, but maybe we'll hear some new tunes when they play Radio City Music Hall on October 11.

3. New York artist Leo Villareal debuts his gigantic tribute to Buckminster Fuller in Madison Square Park on October 25.  The light sculpture, "Buckyball," is made from 180 LED tubes arranged in a honeycomb pattern.  Multicolored honeycombs are, apparently, a new trend as they're also incorporated in the new Bleecker Street subway transfer station.

4. Downtown 4 Democracy is hosting a "Fight Night" (and by "fight," we mean the first presidential debate, of course!) where you can watch the debate on October 3rd with other like-minded politicos at The Jane Hotel. Tickets are $25 and, if you're feelin' fancy, you can get VIP seating and a swag bag with goodies from Opening Ceremony, Rizzoli, Chrissie Miller and more for $250. RSVP at info@downtown4democracy.com. [via press release]

5. Anthony Haden-Guest is releasing a collab album, Rudely Interrupted, with New York singer Lorraine Leckie on November 12.  There's also going to be an album release show scheduled for the Mercury Lounge that night.  The album combines Guest's lyrics with Leckie's melodies.
