I know, I know! Let's shake it up a bit, shall we? I sure as hell didn't move to NYC to hang out in the same bars every weekend. Check out some of the awesome things you could do in the coming week in this glorious city.
1. Take Me I'm Yours at the Jewish Museum
Visitors are encouraged to participate, touch, and even take home works of art by 42 international and intergenerational artists, many of whom are creating new and site-specific works for the exhibition. It’s your chance to finally start your own art collection. Fill your pockets!!
2. NewFest - New York’s LGBT film festival, presented by HBO
Takes place over the next five days at multiple locations across the city.

Love Song http://newfest.org/film/lovesong-closing-night/
Credited with discovering Grace Jones, the marvelous Antonio Lopez, with his creative partner/boyfriend Juan Ramos, knocked the pasty-white starch out of American fashion illustration, then injected it with a glittering cocktail of Puerto Rican dandyism, Warholian sex, disco sultriness, and—duh—top-tier Roman candle–style queerness.
From Paris to New York and back again, arm in arm with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Tina Chow, Grace Jones, and Gianni Versace, they created a soiree that, still, few of us are cool enough to enter.

The noted celeb photographer presents large-format images taken between 1980 and 2015 of prominent women in politics, art, business, entertainment, fashion, literature, music and sports, along with a similar film project.
