Guide to the Weekend: Strange Groupings

Written by

Guide to the Weekend returns, in the one post where you’ll ever find both burlesque and food trucks together.

Friday – Sunday

New York Film Festival

Alice Tully Hall

1941 Broadway

$7 for students

“In the past, the festival has showcased the likes of Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar and Martin Scorsese. Adventurous cineastes will especially want to check out the Views from the Avant-Garde series.” 

D.U.M.B.O Art Under the Bridge Festival

Various neighborhood locations


Artists turn the area around DUMBO into a series of temporary projects, using a variety of mediums.


New York School of Burlesque Student Showcase

The Satin Room

167 Orchard Street

$5, 8-10 p.m.

Seriously, it’s “hosted by NYSB Headmistress Jo “Boobs” Weldon.” What more do you need?


The Kitchen Block Party

The Kitchen

West 19th Street between 9th and 10th

Free, 12-5 p.m.

“Artists from the indie institution prepare collaborative sculptures, hula-hooping workshops, and lessons in double Dutch.” Sounds hipstery!

Dance Theater Workshop


62 East Fourth Street

Free, 1-7 p.m.

The free program, in its 15th season, brings together a huge number of choreographers and dancers for both inside and outside performances.


Award-Winning British Commercials


Free, 1 p.m. start time

Yes, the title sounds sketchy, but MoMA? Commericals? British? Consider it a cocktail that’s too intriguing to pass up.
