I posted about a few museums a while back, and we were able to go to one of the 3 (Tim Burton @ MoMa - pretty awesome!!). I still plan to check out "Hyper" ft. gravity-defying dancers at French supermarkets, especially since it's wrapping up at the end of this month.

Today is Chopin's 200th birthday, and to celebrate, 200 hours of his beautiful music will be playing all week on 5 pianos at the World Financial Center. It's open to the public to play in the morning too (if only I could play still!). I enjoy classical piano so so much. I will likely stop by later this week in the afternoon, if anyone wants to join!
