I don't know if HX magazine still exist. They went under or were bought out atleast a year ago. http://www.nextmagazine.com/
they also have a weekly hard copy which is available at many places for free. Click On the next week tab on top.
There is also a new web site called; http://www.hmess.com/
but there info is for some entries already stale. They still had a place or two that had closed down already. For all there youthful ambition I'd rate them only a C+ for information. It needs a stronger editorial presence and more professional managerial team but after all that they are still a source.
Here is another site http://www.queenofnewyork.com/
There is a new bar opening just around the time your scheduled to be in city and very near a bunch of others. Check there facebook page out: http://www.facebook.com/industrybar
Good luck and have a blast!!!
