The Weekend 411

Share

Memorial Day weekend is FINALLY here and that means Summer is right around the corner. If you’ve been secretly hating on your friends whose facebook and twitter statues read something like “Bienvenido a Miami” no worries, there is plenty going on in NYC. From the Nanette Lepore Sample sale, to Fleet Week, and Dance Africa, you’re sure to find lots of things to keep you busy. Have an O So Chic weekend!

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale

The color palette in Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2009 collection always makes me smile (I developed a fashion infatuation with the label ever since I sat in the Tent during her Spring 09 presentation). Score some of flirty frocks at a fraction of retail cost at the sample sale.

When: Ends Friday, May 21, 2009
9am-7pm
Where: 225 West 35th Street, 4th floor (near 7th Avenue)

Fleet Week

It’s Fleet Week in New York, and that means the sailors are here dressed up in their Navy best (be still my beating heart). We’ve heard from a couple of sailors that New Yorkers are mean, and we know that’s just not true, so if you see a sailor smile and say “Helloooo Sailor.”

Head down to to the Pier 86 for a tour of the Intrepid Air, Sea & Space Museum, military demonstrations, and performances by some of the best casts on Broadway (the cast of Stomp performs on Friday; Wicked on Saturday).

Visit the IntrepidMuseum.org for the full schedule of events.

Dance Africa

Since we all live in different parts of New York city, I usually meet up with my friends in Manhattan (midpoint for us all), but for the past few weekends, we’ve been carrying a love affair with my borough, BROOKLYN.

This weekend Dance Africa returns to BAM with Rhythmic Reflections: African Legacies Revealed. The event is directed by Chuck Taylor and will feature performances from New York and Washington-DC based dance companies.

When: Friday, May 22, 2009 (7:30pm)
Saturday, May 23, 2009 May 23 at (2pm & 7:30pm)
Sunday & Monday, May 24 – 25, 2009 (3pm)
Visit bam.org for tickets.
