So I subscribe to a whole bunch of mailing lists about art and events in New York City, and somehow every single one managed to have something mind-blowingly cool this week. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to go to them all, but here's my dream lineup:
- Saturday night, hit the Burlesque Showcase (40+ burlesque and variety performers from all over the world)
- Sunday, go to NerdNYC's full-day game-fest (nerdNYC is amazing)
- Sunday night, go to a lecture on the history of dueling
- Wednesday night, go to the Underwater James Bond party (even I'm not sure what that means!)
Of course, there's also the Amato Opera (a family of opera singers doing Lucia di Lammermoor) and the 2nd Avenue Deli party (a giant party involving lots of deli food in celebration of the 50th anniversary of one of the best Jewish delis in the city). And in my spare time, I really should join the Puppetistas (self-described raunchy, radical Spanish-language puppet theater) or just go ahead and found some kind of weird art thing of my own.
