Those of you following me on Twitter have heard about the 1st Thursdays DUMBO Gallery Walk happening this evening; let me just add that there are a number of opening receptions at participating galleries this month, including openings at A.I.R. Gallery and the Farmani Gallery.
Tomorrow the city is throwing the Yankees a proper ticker tape parade in celebration of their big win (ok, I know nothing about baseball but I do like parades). The MTA has advice on how to beat the crowds on the subway and Metromix can help you get a great view and find a place to drink afterwards!
On Saturday you can prove just how well you know our fine city by participating in a massive Scavenger Hunt! Start at the Cube in Astor Pl. and then the Hunt Is On!
Also on Saturday, those of you who have never quite left your beer pong days behind can achieve glory at Second Chance Saloon:
This Saturday, Second Chance Saloon will challenge domestic-whisky-experts and beer-can-free-throwers alike to prove their drinking might in its first annual Bar-athlon. Teams of up to four drinkers will compete in 10 different bar-themed events, from a wafting contest (contestants must identify drinks by smell) to a bar counter beer slide. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place, and cheap drinks and hot dogs will be available for all.
This weekend is your last chance to see the Japanese Garden at the New York Botanical Garden; this is not just the end of this season but the final year so get on Metro North and smell some flowers!
