Weekend Staff Picks: Graves, Washboards & Lies
Saturday, November 02, 2013
Here's a sampling of some of the events our colleagues are checking out around town this weekend.
JOY Y. WANG, producer of Last Chance Foods: A tour of the historic Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn is a favorite of Joy's, especially during the peak leaf peeping and bird migration season. Joy also downloaded the very first historic cemetery app, "Green-Wood Discover" and is excited to get guided on a walking tour by author/journalist Pete Hamill.
ANA KARINA QUIROZ, membership assistant: The band Spirit Family Reunion is performing Saturday at The Music Hall of Williamsburg and Ana received tickets from a friend and even thought she had never heard of the group before, she's been listening to their music online and can't wait for the concert. "They're very high energy, folky and a good time band," said Ana.
JIM O'GRADY, WNYC reporter: Jim is a born storyteller -- just don't always believe him. On Saturday, he's participating in The Liar Show at the Cornelia Street Cafe in the Village where four stories are heard, three are true and one is a fake. The audience gets to question and grill the storytellers and decide who told the lies. T-shirts are given out as prizes.
