Cohen lost the vast majority of his savings and the publishing rights to his songs due to intentional financial mismanagement by his his manager. He's making back what was lost by playing the songs he no longer even owns the rights to (in many cases). Besides, the shows are universally reviewed as spectacular, often 2+ hours.
Look, from now on when you do these sorts of articles you should provide a way to listen to the songs mentioned. The computing world/internet is crammed with ways to do this, and it seems to be pretty standard practice. For instance, you could make a Spotify playlist, like this:
And sorry, there's not much Big Freedia on Spotify, because you know, samples. I hope Hammertime works instead.
I must advocate for Dante's Kitchen as the best brunch in town; pricey, but it will dull your senses to lesser fare for some time. There is also Elizabeth's, Marginy Brasserie, Cafe Roux, and Huevos was not to be scoffed at while it was open (and will be again). Also, Bywater BBQ has two stand-out dishes, even if the whole menu isn't spectacular.
Finally, some of the best drunk-brunches are done a bit ad-hoc. For example, stuffing down the Royal Feast or All That Jazz sandwich and your drink of choice (Budweiser tall boy or bloody-to-go from Golden Lantern) and sitting down in Washington Square Park or along the river are rarely beaten in price or pleasure.
Try St. Ann's.
