The Weekend

So much fun stuff happening this weekend!  Last night L and I went out with a friend for her sister's bachelorette party.  We stopped by Babeland in Park Slope for a little store event and then headed into the city for some adventures.  

In Greenpoint, PRF.BBQ.NYC will be happening all weekend.  This is an annual festival that was created by Steve Albini.  Usually it's held in Chicago but this year it's right in the neighborhood.  From the event page:

"Three days of rapid-fire rock, food, art, poetry, and all sorts of fun stuff right here in beautiful NYC. A completely DIY, not-for-profit event with a hearty disdain for corporate sponsorship and a love for all things music and art, PRF.BBQ.NYC proudly welcomes bands and artists from across the globe (that's right, globe) happy to share their art with the people of New York City. ALL of the money collected at the door will be used for the event itself and to help out the generous touring bands who have agreed to drive hundreds and fly thousands of miles purely to play their music for us lucky souls."

The line-up looks really great.  My friend's band, Methodist, is on at 6:30pm.  

Also tonight in Brooklyn, 3rd Ward is having a great art exhibit of inflatable sculptures from 7pm to 10pm.  Admission is free and I anticipate the place to be packed.

To round out the night, some karaoke in the city at my friend's bar.

Tomorrow I'll be attending a baptism for my dear friend's son at Park Slope Methodist.

Lots to do.  Lots to celebrate.  : )
