Maybe you heard: Keith Urban taped a mini-set -- which included a hometown homage to St. Mark's grad Steve Miller -- in the West Village tonight, in advance of his halftime performance during Cowboys-Saints. Our Stephen Masker was there and had, from the looks of this very hunky slide show, quite the prime perch. Still, I like this shot best -- very, how you say, "big city." I expect the same crowd for the Uptown Menorah Lighting at 7 p.m. on December 2. Don't make me guilt you.
