Sat 27: Jersey City LGBT Pride
Newark Avenue Pedestrian Mall, 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Free

Sun 28: Nail Art for Everyone
QED Astoria, 27-16 23rd Ave, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM, $25
If you’re like me, your nails can reliably look like those of a typically lazy 12 year-old boy. I’ve always admired those magical princesses whose nails always look amazing, especially when I then hear that they did their nails themselves. What the who?! Join teacher Claire Beaudreault for a class in all where you’ll learn all the simple-but-impressive looks you could ever want to learn.
Mon 29: The Lobster @ Syndicated Bar
The Syndicated Bar, 40 Bogart St, Brooklyn, 6:30 PM, $5
Remember going to the dollar theater with your mom, watching recent movies and eating slightly-stale popcorn? The Syndicated Bar is like that, only instead of popcorn you’re eating delicious food and drinking fancy drinks. If there’s ever been a moment to combine dinner AND a movie, this is it.
Mon 29: Free Yoga for Everyone
San Damiano Mission, 85 N 15th St, Brooklyn, 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM, Free
Yoga is fun, yoga in a beautiful old church (just google the mission) sounds pretty super fun and interesting. There will be an opportunity to sign up for a package of classes after this free intro, but no pressure! Check it out and stretch it out.
Weds 31: Womanhood LIVE!
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, 126 Crosby St, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Free
O Oh my freaking goodness, Aparna and Jo are so hilarious it hurts me. Check out this video and tell me I’m wrong. I’ll wait. See? You can’t. I’ve seen Aparna Nancherla do standup a few times it’s pretty obvious that she’s going places, and her partner in these videos is just as funny. Do yourself a favor and check them out before they’re famous.
