Each weekend, we like to tell you what’s up in New York. This way, when you finish your bus tour or you’re just hopping off, you’ll know what to do. Here’s what’s happening this weekend in New York City:
Lobster Day with SoupMan
Friday is National Lobster Day and there is no better way to celebrate than with half-priced lobster bisque from The Original SoupMan. That’s right; the real soup seller who inspired the eternally famous Seinfeld character is going all out for Lobster Day. 50% off lobster bisque, $2 off lobster rolls, outdoor music… We even hear that there’s going to be someone in a lobster suit hanging out with the customers! Stop by their location on 55th and 8th between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. for the best soup you’ll ever try.
*No guarantee of being served unless ‘the rules’ are strictly followed*
The Northside Festival has been called “Brooklyn’s answer to SXSW,” and beginning Thursday night, it looks like and awesome time. Venues for Northside include Brooklyn Bowl, Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Knitting Factory and more! There’s only 12 hours left to buy an advance music badge (written at noon) so hurry.
HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival
So I guess Monday isn’t technically the weekend anymore, but the HBO Bryant Park Film Fest is cool and I wanted to talk about it. On Monday night there will be a free screening of the Hitchcock classic, Psycho. Every Monday until the end of August more great films – from Butch Cassidy to Indiana Jones – will be shown.
