Sunday Funday: 9/23

Still one more day to enjoy before the work week!

Here are a few ideas for some Sunday Fun, if you don't sleep in too much after a night out (or do, that's ok too!).  I noted in green what I'm planning to check out today - saving the others for later!

SUN 9/23
  • Open 7 days - DEKALB MARKET: I love going to street fairs whenever I have downtime on the weekends because there's always something to look at, buy, or eat - and Dekalb Market is one you should definitely go to over the next few weekends because it's closing/moving at the end of this month! [138 Willoughby Street (@Flatbush Ave), Brooklyn | B, Q, R to Dekalb Ave OR A, C, F & R to Jay St. Metrotech]
  • 10am - 6pm - BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL: Might strike your fancy - all FREE events, see schedule here [209 Joralemon St, Brooklyn]
  • 10am-7pm - BROADWAY CARES/FLEA MKT + AUCTION: Stop by Times Sq to look at/purchase B'way memorabilia to raise money to fight aids.  May see some B'way celebs there too! [W44 - Shubert Alley, website].
  • 11am-9pm - MADISON SQUARE EATS (Thru 11/19): 25+ food vendor in one place, yummy! [25th St and 5th Ave, website].
  • 1pm - BROOKLYN CANNING CLASS (Thru 10/21): Learn to be a master canner of late summer/fall fruits!  I know at least 2 couples who might like this: ) [BK Society for Ethical Culture, $20 includes materials and canned goodness to take home, website]
  • 2pm - SHOW at Lincoln CenterLa más grande historia jamás CANTADA (The Most Amazing Story Ever Sung) - well known Colombian musical production with 85 dancers, 600 costumes, and an 18-piece orchestra about the lesser known life of Jesus.  Email me to find out about $5 tix for this show (normally $45+!).  Still tix left, last show!
  • SMALL WORKS NYC EXHIBIT (Thru 10/20): See "small works" that are meant to draw you closer into the art, FREE [Jeffry Leder Gallery, L.I.C - my old hood!  website]
