Weekend Quick Picks!
Fri Oct 19 2007
Go Fish with Michael Hill
Brooklyn Bluesman Michael Hill and his group of musician buddies tell jokes and perform silly songs about baiting a hook and casting a reel in this show, Fishing Blues. During the concert, your kid can partake in aquatic-themed arts and crafts and practice their catching-and-releasing with the provided fishing poles. All ages.
Sat 20 10am-2pm. Robert F. Wagner Park, Battery Park City, Battery Pl at Little West St (212-267-9700, bpcparks.org). Subway: R to Rector St; 4, 5 to Bowling Green. FREE.
Bari Koral Band
Though adult-pleasing music with kid-friendly lyrics has ceased to be a novelty, Bari Koral is still the rare rocker who can say she’s opened for SpongeBob SquarePants. This afternoon, she’ll be rocking out downtown, performing tunes from her band’s latest album, Family Rock Band. All ages.
Sun 21 noon-1pm. Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery between Bleecker and Houston Sts (212-614-0505, bowerypoetry.com). Subway: D, F to Broadway–Lafayette St. 6 to Bleecker St. $10.
It’s My Park! Fall Cleanup Day
Though some may consider this cheap labor rather than an expression of community spirit, we think your tykes will be up for the challenge of raking leaves, sweeping paths, and generally sprucing up some of Prospect Park. Grass stains are sure to abound, so bring out the old jeans and t-shirts.
Sat 20 10am-2pm. Prospect Park, Nethermead (midpark), enter park from Prospect Park Southwest at 16th St, Brooklyn (718-965-8951, prospectpark.org). Subway: F to 15th St.
