In general though, I feel like there haven't been as many things to check out (except Tim Burton @ MoMa, very cool!)...but wait til it gets warmer: ). Summer will be here soon enough = street festivals, outdoor fun, and lots of other free events! In the meantime...here are some upcoming things I'm checking out, and you should come along too!
