Living in the NYC area is not always as glam as it sounds. There are always plenty of things to do, but sometimes we don’t hear about it until it’s too late, or unless you know someone who’s “in the know.” But those people suck.
Well, that’s why I’m here. If you’re going to be in the NYC area this weekend, here are some cool things to do:
Check out NYC’s first sake brewery at Sunset Park’s Industrial City. A 2,500 square foot warehouse has been transformed into one of the 15 sake breweries in the United States. The first in NYC, Kura should be an instant hit, and will have brews made from American ingredients.
Take a free tour of the Rose Main Reading Room at the New York Public Library near Bryant Park. It’s been closed for renovations and is finally open again after two years. The tours are done on a first-come first-served basis Friday and Saturday at 11 a.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. If you want more after the tour, cozy up with some books.
The Tunnel, a new exhibit by the Lyle O. Reitzel gallery at 139 Aldridge Street, is opening Friday from 6-9 p.m. The gallery is special because it shows how Latinx artists and the art scene of New York collide to create great pieces of work.
Darling has been a beloved boutique in the West Village for over a decade. With in-house brands and other international and local designers, Darling sells chic, trendy clothing like spring dresses and frocks. You can find a super cute outfit here that’s perfect to prepare you for the warmer weather.
Laugh about something…not so funny, at Apologies From Men: The Concert. Lauren Maul, a comedian and composer who brought us “Amazon Reviews: The Musical!” has decided to go political. This show has a social message we all need to hear: the apologies of men accused of sexual harassment. The empty apologies are mocked in song form, making them seem that much more ridiculous. See the show at The Striker on E 34th street at 9:30 p.m. on Friday.
