10 Things to Do for Less Than $10 in NYC This Weekend
Clueless about what to do this weekend? Have little or no money to spare? Your life isn't as pathetic as you think. We've got your social calendar packed with very cool events beginning with tonight's humorous look at life on the road featuring Village Voice columnist Andrew W.K. and Wu Tang Clan's Masta Killa, at the Creek and the Cave, in Long Island City. Also, this weekend experience DISown: Not for Everyone, which could be an art installation, an obstacle course, or a boutique. We'll let you figure that one out.
