Weekend Guide
There’s nothing like the winter solstice.
People traveling home, cold breeze in the air, and a fresh aura hits the air. Plus a little something we know as Christmas Spirit.
Make the most out of your weekend, here are a few things to check out!
Short Story Selection
Every city feels as if it is an entity in and of itself, a being created by the millions of lives that inhabit it now and have in the past. In this short story written by Jemisin, we follow a young black homeless man just trying to survive in NYC.
An older man named Paulo helps him from time to time, buying him coffee and sandwiches in exchange for someone to listen to his rants. One morning, Paulo’s rant goes into the inner workings of the city, how it breathes and is ready for someone to help it live.
Our main character is wary of the breathing sounds he hears but assumes being homeless for so long has warped his mind. 
Make Pizza, Drink Wine
Since we had such a great time earlier this month for our past two events, we're coming back for more, more, more!
Consider this your formal invite (yes, once again) to KestΓ© Pizza & Vino’s pizza-making classes, Make Pizza Drink Wine, going down from 7 PM to 10 PM on the following Friday nights: January 11th, 25th, plus February 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd!
Artist Open Call
AUGMENTED is a group show focused on the intersection of art and technology, serving as a metaphor for the augmented self - not seen with the naked eye.
Inspired by your bodega man’s dreams, this exhibition is a one night only party, held at the well to do Arlo Nomad. A former Turkish bathhouse turned work of art, turned chic travelers boarding house.
We’d love for you and your artwork to be a part of this night!
To submit your work, download the 3DBrush App and create a piece that captures your AUGMENTED self. 
Finger Frame
We live in a world where our attention is for sale, and most of us don't even realize it.

Alex Wolf explores how ideas are classified from weird to normal, and how consumption has created an industry supported by digital media plantations.
How much does that like mean to you?

Short Story Selection
When the dreadfully boring Mr. Sorensen passes away, his widowed wife is told she must live out the rest of her days alone as a widow. But shouldn’t she be allowed to move on? Find a spark of love that had been absent from her previous marriage?
Mrs. Sorensen sure does not believe so, and finds company in a place most others would find troubling. The local priest does his best to convince her to be nothing. This strange world is full of odd characters, some of whom are not what you think.
Live DJ, Anyone?!

Do something different this New Year’s Eve by grabbing your sneakers and heading over to Central Park. New York Road Runners will be ringing in the new year with its annual NYRR Midnight Run on New Year’s Eve.
Get pumped up with a DJ booth set up at the halfway point, stilt walkers at the start line, and then join the countdown to midnight and watch fireworks light up the sky as you take on this four-mile race through the park. This festive celebration is the perfect way to start 2019 off on the right foot!
