Guide To The Weekend: Last Hurrahs Edition

Just because activities have calmed down here on campus in observance of approaching finals, it doesn’t mean that New York City isn’t still popping!


Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

The Con Film Festival

Film Forum, 209 W Houston St (212.727.8110)

This series of cinematic odes to the bad guy will feature classic takes on criminals and their sexy dangerous lives. Escape from Alcatraz and Riot in Cell Block 11 will be notable features.

Price: $11



Friday and Saturday

Worshiping Women: Ritual and Reality in Classical Athens

Friday and Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m., The Onassis Cultural Center 645 Fifth Ave. (212-486-4448)

Just in time for those CC/Lit Hum finals, this exhibit promises to challenge standard opinions of the age. 150 rare archaeological objects make their debut in this exhibit.

Price: Free!


Friday

Mono + Wordless Music Opera

Friday 8 p.m., New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W. 64th Street (212-874-5210)

Japanese electric and a hybrid orchestra combine to bring a night of music to New York that no one will soon forget. The repertoire includes whirlpools of sound and velvety smooth sections of pure and blissful noise; check your expectations at the door.

Price: $30


Saturday

Graffiti and Break Battle

Saturday 12-5 p.m., Riverbank State Park, 679 Riverside Dr

The nations top graffiti artists go head-to-head, creating live art for the chance to compete in the Oakland, California finals later this year. Simultaneously, NYC’s best break-dancers face off for a chance at cash prices. It’ll be a pretty bad-ass way to procrastinate.

Price: Free!

Homebase IV Opening

Saturday 12-8 p.m., 232 East Broadway

This former medical facility turns into an artistic and cultural hub this weekend, featuring the work of artists from a variety of countries and cultures. It will become a place of vibrant cultural programming and will certainly be worth getting acquainted with.

Price: Free!


Sunday

Tofu Takedown

Sunday 4 p.m., Highline Ballroom, 431 W 16th St (212.414.5994)

Since 2005, the popular NYC takedown events have taken on everything from chili to bacon. This weekend, vegetarians can finally participate in this classic mass orgy of flavor. Attendees are allowed to judge, so bring your appetites and help determine the first vegetarian winner!

Price: $10
