Hi everyone...This blog is meant to give you an inside look on events that are up and coming in NY that you are too busy to find out about, and to let you see the events you were not able to make, but want to know about. Not only will you be culturally enlightened about the whereabouts of innovative art exhibits, movies, shows, randomness in NY, but I will also list websites I discover that I think are worth looking at for when you want to be entertained or something unique to look at...ok this all sounds lame but I promise that its better than I can describe
