The summer is slowly coming to an end. In fact, a pal said that she had seen Halloween decorations on sale in a local store. (I know! How crazy is that?) Here are a few fun events that you can still check out this weekend. It’s supposed to be a nice couple of days, weather-wise, so go for it. It’s your last chance!
Get your flapper on at the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s island this Saturday and Sunday. Music performances, featuring Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, Charleston lessons and a pie recipe contest are just a few of the activities at this whimsical step back in time.
The menu includes gourmet grilled cheese, shrimp roll, a Hawaiian-style Luau and a Chinatown Chop Suey station.
20s attire is not mandatory, but very much encouraged! Tickets are $30 (fancier packages cost more) and you can get them here.
The Washington Square Park Tuesday concerts ended at the beginning of the month, but on Saturday night you can catch a terrific band at the RCTA Summer Sunset Concert Series on the Upper West Side. The performance takes place by the Hudson right next to the tennis courts on 96th street. The music, the view and the glorious sunset add up to an incredible evening. Don’t forget a blanket, some wine and a picnic basket. Sabor Brasil, a Brazilian Samba band closes the series this Saturday. The music starts promptly at 7 p.m.
The Public Theater’s Shakespeare In the Park series ends this Sunday. Love’s Labour’s Lost will be performed both Saturday and Sunday at 8:30 p.m.
It’s one of the few last weekends of the summer….enjoy it!
