Is it summer yet?

Hello Fans and Air Conditioners!

I know it's not even Memorial Day yet, but I am posting my annual, here's what is going on in NYC this summer for FREEEEEE. At least Part 1 (May & June)...cuz a lot of it isn't announced yet ;-)

* May 29th--the new Coney Island opens, called Luna Park. So while not totally free, as you have to pay for the rides, the great people watching is au gratis!! (Oh and be sure to check out the Mermaid Parade on June 19th!)

* June 8th--Do you heart art? Well then Museum Mile Festival is for you!

* June 12th--Fat Bottom Girls Make the Rockin' World Go Round!!! Sign up for the naked bike ride.

*June 24th--A great show at Prospect Park Bandshell--Buena Vista Social Club!

*June 26th--Apples in Stereo live at the South Street Seaport. Concerts with an incredible view.

* June 26th & 27th--Willyburg walk--walk it out with hipsters and see some art and eat some food.

*June 30th--Not free, but it's only $10, and I love the name of the band cuz it's named after one of my favorite books ever: The Secret History, Live + Guests at The Bell House.

--> Monday night Craft Night sponsored by Etsy!
--> Thursday Night Burlesque @ Nurse Bettie
--> Free drinks for you and 15 of our friends! Well sort of. At Bushwick Country Club.

The "IT" List--MAY Edition

This is a new segment of agmac's party and it's basically cool stuff I want to see, do or eat. It's my way of remembering this info and also of sharing it with you, my adoring fans.

For the month of May, here's what I'm looking forward to (or enjoying):

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia
This crazy redneck documentary looks both scary and wildy entertaining. I love me some meth comedy. This was just in the Tribeca Film Festival and I'm not sure when it's being released to the rest of the world, but stay tuned!

Mark Ryden Exhibit
The coolest, weirdest artist of our time. Now in New York for our viewing pleasure.

That Tree
A cool video to check out by the super fun Snoop Dog and Kid Cudi.

Holy WHAT?
Another film, yet to be released, about a Hasidic drug mule. Called 'Holy Rollers.' And it's a true story!

Ear Cuffs
For when your ears need a break from cheap metal dangly earrings, there's these cool Victorian inspired ear cuffs. No harm done.

I'm off to Paris in 16 days which is cooler than cool. I'll post a June "IT" list all about Pareee! Mon amie!
