I am currently visiting G in Boston but I would be irresponsible if I did not alert you to at least a few more events happening in the Big Apple this weekend.
If you are 1) a fan of Michel Gondry or 2) a fan of Gabrielle Bell or 3) a fan of Ariel Schrag you should be at Desert Island Comics this evening, where the two latter will be signing their new releases (if you’re unaware “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry collaborated with cartoonist Gabrielle Bell for his segment of current indie flick “Tokyo!,” based on a story from her collection Cecil and Jordan in New York, which is why fans of Michel Gondry may also want to attend).
Tomorrow night is Brazillian Carnival Night at the 92nd St. Y:
Come usher in the Spring with a taste of Brazilian culture! Zouk Nation presents a full evening of Brazilian music and dance. The night will include two djs, a raffle drawing with prizes, along with a free lesson in zouk dancing during the first hour and live demonstrations of zouk, forro, samba de gafieira and capoeira throughout the evening.
I wasn’t going to post this, mainly because I personally don’t eat pork, but since I’m not in NYC anyway you deserve to know that the people who brought you the Chili Takedown are now bringing you the Bacon Takedown at Radegast Hall.
Have a great weekend everyone and stay tuned for next week’s events!
