We have quite a week ahead of us, particularly if the rain confines itself to convenient times of day! Tonight, don’t forget there’s an excellent indoor event at Union Hall- the Board Game Olympics! The organizers at Metro Metro have some good tricks up their sleeves- get out there and play nice!

If a night of board games puts you in the mood for even more nostalgia you should head to BAM Tuesday night for a screening of the 1979 classic- The Muppet Movie! Check out the trailer:

On Wednesday Finger On the Pulse NYC is presenting another fantastic BBQ, starring The Harlem Shakes and Sam Mason, of Tailor fame (read my review of Tailor to get your taste buds excited).


If you want to do a bit more moving and a bit less eating Wednesday night check out the Official Tango Factory Milonga Opening at Drom. There will be “live electro tango music” and a “dance exhibit”- sounds promising, if a bit on the unusual end of tango!


There’s a ton going on Thursday; my pick if it’s not raining is a screening of To Catch a Thief in Brooklyn Bridge Park. This might well be the most romantic event of the summer- the bridge glittering above you as Cary Grant and Grace Kelly (future Princess of Monaco) exchange smoldering looks on the silver screen. Sneak in a bottle of wine and a blanket to cuddle under; check out the trailer for a taste of what you’re in for:

For those of you who are not secretly romantics (or trying to get laid- let’s be honest boys), you can check out Mem at the Delancey. The drummer from Brit Boras and the Cavalry, who I’ve raved about in the past, gives the music its hot beat.

If you’re looking for a more classic sound check out the Saxophone Summit at Kaufmann Concert Hall. The 92Y is hosting this all-star concert with saxophonists including Jimmy Heath, Phil Woods and Steve Wilson.

Finally, if you’re still feeling nostalgic, round out your week with a visit to Camp Wanatachi, aka Glasslands Gallery, for lots of great music and theatrical reenactments, plus s’mores, friendship bracelets and hair wrap stations!

I just got home from the Mermaid Parade, which was great despite the rain and dreariness (can we get a little sun here please?!). I’ll post some pictures for you later but first I want to pass on a few events I didn’t include in my last post.

Tonight is the Summer Solstice Party at the Chelsea Art Museum:


Tomorrow is Make Music NY:

From 11 in the morning until 10 at night, musicians of all ages, creeds and musical persuasions- from hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock- perform on streets, sidewalks, stoops, plazas, cemeteries, parks and gardens.

Time Out New York has complete coverage with maps and recommendations; check it out here.

Also tomorrow if it’s still raining you can make the most of it by participating in a giant slip-n-slide in Prospect Park! This MAP has the details on where and when, plus a phone number you can text to receive updates.

If you want to stay inside until the great floods are dry you should check out the Dysfunctional Theater Company’s production of Arsenic and Old Lace, playing through June 27th.

I have adored that play since first seeing it on a school trip in 4th grade (so inappropriate for that age group!). The movie version, with Cary Grant, is also fantastic. If you don’t know the story this clip from the movie should give you a good concept:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay tuned for news of this week’s events!
