Here’s a list of things that our fair city can offer you next month:
We have sports! Tennis fans can attend the US Open! The tournament runs from August 25th through September 8th. Nadal! Federer! Williams!
We have movies! The Harlem International Film Festival runs from the 10th through the 14th. A film on Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Children of The Light, narrated by his daughter Naomi, opens the festivities.
We have inexpensive art! You can buy some low-cost goodies at the Affordable Art Fair in Chelsea from the 25th through the 29th. Browse thousands of paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs in prices ranging from $100 – $10,000. (Most pieces are priced under $5,000.)
We have freebies! Saturday, the 27th is Free Museum Day. Head to the Smithsonian magazine website to download free tickets for participating museums in the city.
We have beer! Quaff ale and help animals at the same time at Beer for Beasts benefit at the Bell House in Brooklyn. $45 will get you samplings of suds plus noshes from some of the city’s best food vendors. All proceeds will go toward the Humane Society of New York City.
Okay–one more reason. It’s still warm, but with a very slight chill in the air…a light sweater is all you need. Perfect people-watching, outdoor-eating, city-strolling weather! So come see us next month!
