Performance and Food and Food Performance

There are quite a range of performances taking place in the Big Apple this weekend. The aforementioned Burlesque Festival is one excellent example (I have my tickets to the Golden Pasties; do you have yours?) and Prelude is sure to be full of surprises as well.

Tomorrow night at The Knitting Factory Girl in a Coma will be putting on their usual high energy performance! Are they hot or what?

Saturday night at Pianos you can join the Mile High club, well, sort of, you can check out the awesome VJ stylings by Valujet Visuals and dance the night away at the best new dance party in town.

It might not be exactly a performance act but NY Pickle Day is certain be entertaining (and delicious). Check out this video of last year’s festivities:

Wow. Now I’m hungry. Speaking of hungry, Bar Celona will be opening in Wburg this weekend; Daily Candy says

Former glue factory turned noir tapas lounge dishes braised oxtail, herb- and goat cheese-stuffed piquillo peppers, and crispy codfish bombas with orange garlic marmalade. Gazpacho- and paella-flavored artisanal cocktails from madmen mixologists The Tippling Bros. are worth the trek.

Of course if you’re REALLY hungry you simply must head out to the Lamb Takedown, brought to you by the creators of the Chili Takedown and certain to, umm… take you down.

Sunday night if you feel up to a splurge get tickets to the best tasting event of the fall- The Manhattan Cocktail Classic Preview Gala at New York Public Library’s Astor Hall:

Some of the world’s greatest bartenders will be mixing New York’s most iconic hometown drinks, with jazz greats Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks providing the soundtrack for the appropriate activities (fancy attire and dancing–in addition to lots of drinking–will be encouraged).

One advance notice: I’m also excited about the first-ever Vertical Three Ring Circus at the Trapeze School of New York. You may recall my foray into the aerial arts last spring took place at TSNY. This performance will feature “the aerial performances of Suspended Cirque and Una Mimnaugh, the flying trapeze team from TSNY, and unicycle, juggling and trampoline acts.”
