Stars and Stripes (and Stilettos)
Since the old man's well, old, he's probably into old stuff, too. The Met's "Civil War and American Art" show, which traveled to New York from the Smithsonian, will tickle his historical bone. And all the fashionable dames (his words, not yours) going to the Costume Institute's "PUNK — Chaos to Couture" exhibition are the icing on that cake.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave. (E. 82nd St.), Upper East Side. $25 here, or suggested donation.
