The three best things to do in New York today

Written by
Jillian Anthony

Have a pow-wow with Salman Rushdie
Hear the luminary author read from his newest novel, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights, and have him sign your book! You, uh, have to purchase it from Barnes and Noble or to get in, so you should at least get it signed. 
Union Square Barnes and Noble, 33 E 17th Street, must provide proof of purchase from a Barnes & Noble location or for event attendance and priority seating

Play Strangers with Candy bingo
Revisit Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert's hilarious roles as teacher and student in this bizarre comedy. Play rounds of bingo during a couple of episodes with bingo squares like "health class," "I've got something to say" and "fanny pack."
Videology, 308 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, 9pm, free

Dance to the beat at the New York Gypsy Festival
For its 11th year, the rollicking celebration of Gypsy culture and heritage gathers at Drom for perfomances by the prodigious French/North African brass band Fanfaraï (9pm), Spanish flamenco dancers Memoria Antigua and acts from Algeria, Poland and more.
Drom, 85 Avenue A, $15
