10 NYC Weekend Ideas Under $10: Matthew Morrocco at TEMP Art Space, and Oscar Night Viewing Parties
Voice film critics ask: "Do the Oscars really even matter, guys?", to which we say: a million times, yes! Well, they do to those of us tuning in on Sunday night. We've listed a couple of free Oscar night viewing parties, including at the Maysles Cinema, in Harlem, and at Videology, in Williamsburg. But before that catch Sarah Jessica Parker selling shoes at a Nordstrom pop-up shop on West Broadway, and an opening reception for fine art photographer Matthew Morrocco at TEMP Art Space in TriBeCa.
Friday, February 28

[Shopping] You don't need to be a fan of Sex and the City to appreciate Sarah Jessica Parker's incredible sense of fashion...although it sure doesn't hurt. Today the stylish actress launches her shoe collection, with Nordstrom, and if Carrie Bradshaw, err...Parker, taught us anything is that men she "may not know. But shoes -- shoes!" she knows. The lovely thespian/fashion icon will be on hand today, through the weekend, at the pop-up shop so be aware that this event will be an utter clusterfuck, but very worthwhile if you're a shoe enthusiast. Opens at 10 a.m., through Sunday, Nordstrom Pop-Up Shop, TriBeCa, free (to attend, not the actual shoes!).
[Art] Jason Andrew and Norte Maar bring back the late-night art walk in Bushwick with the tenth issue of Beat Nite featuring 10 art spaces selected by guest curator Austin Thomas, owner of Pocket Utopia. Click here to download the Beat Night map. Stick around for the after-party. At 6 p.m., Norte Maar (host space), Bushwick, free.
[Talk] Inspired by Wendy Perron's new book Through the Eyes of a Dancer, tonight's A Discussion About Dancers Who Write dives into dance and how that writing is influenced by being a dancer. Perron is joined on the panel by Siobhan Burke, dance critic for The New York Times, choreographer/writer Mark Dendy, and Sascha Radetsky, writer and soloist with ABT. At 8 p.m., Steps on Broadway, Upper West Side, $10.
