Here are some ways to celebrate the last weekend in July, in the LES and a stones throw beyond.
Eat (& play) well!
Critical Mass: This monthly gathering for biker's rights in Manhattan, hosted by Times Up, is tonight at 7pm. Meet on the north side of Union Square (it will be hard to miss the masses of bikers and revelers).
Catch the last weekend of Lush Life, this weekend. Different chapters of Richard Price's 2008 novel of the same title can be experienced at nine different Lower East Side Galleries, now through Sunday. Take a look at a full directory and further information here.
Watch The Main Squeeze Orchestra at the Living Room located at 154 Ludlow Street this Saturday. This all girl accordion troupe puts on an incredible and irreverent show, combining merited music smithing with tongue in cheep burlesque undertones, and joined by a host of friends. Saturday, July 31st from 9pm-12am. Tickets cost $12.
Maryam Nassir Zadeh's summer sale continues, now with discounts of up to 50% off. Stop in to their beautiful space, just around the corner from the restaurant, and snatch up the deals while they still last!
