Last-minute plan: MoMA Nights, part two
Thu Feb 4 2010
Tim Burton is even creepier when the sun goes down.
It's the first Thursday of the month, and you know what the means—tonight marks the second edition of the Museum of Modern Art's MoMA Nights (11 W 53rd St between Fifth and Sixth Aves; 212-708-940, moma.org). In case you've forgotten, here's the skinny:
For the regular price of admission, you can wander the museum until 8:45pm and enjoy scheduled gallery tours and film screenings (tonight, catch Anne Aghion's My Neighbor, My Killer). Check out two of the biggest shows of the moment—"Tim Burton" and "Bauhaus" (note: The museum recommends that timed tickets be purchased online in advance for "Tim Burton")—and then dance away the workday stress to tunes from guest DJ Alex Pasternak. If you feel like modern art is a dish best served with a glass of chardonnay, head to the cash bar (5--8:30pm) on the second floor. And tonight, should you feel peckish, the museum restaurant is offering a $25 three-course prix-fixe dinner featuring braised short ribs and duck confit.
For your scheduling convenience, here are the remaining 2010 MoMA Nights: March 4, April 1, May 6 and June 3.
