Guide to the Weekend: Parental Edition
Written by Bwog Staff
Since the folks are in, treat them to the best that New York has to offer. Or, get them lost in the Book Culture and sneak out yourself. We won’t judge.
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday:
New Yorker Festival
See schedule of events for times and locations
A wild intellectual ride of panels and talks and Q&As. Tickets are required—popular events are probably already sold out. Sometimes you get lucky with stand-by.
Views from the Avante Garde
See website for showtimes
If you’re interested in going where no moviegoer has gone before, check out these mind-bending adventures in cinematic experimentation.
Price: $11 for the public, $7 for students with ID
Friday and Saturday:
Taste of Korea 2008
