Astoria Weekend Edition 31.03.06

What great weather we finally had this week! Saturday will be rainy (yet warm) but Sunday should be nice and sunny. It has been great running weather and I hope you all are able to get out and frolick in the warm spring weather. I'll be rehearsing and performing a bunch this weekend (which means staying inside, boooo), but if I wasn't I'd be out and about in the nice weather, maybe going for a run down by Astoria Park, having pancakes at Zorba's (29-05 23rd Ave.) or having some fresh juice at Fresh Start (be sure to pick up their "Buy 6 Get the 7th Juice Free" card). To Laiko up the street has homemade Greek yoghurt with honey, something I've been meaning to try. Hey, on Sunday afternoon (around 3pm) there's Ultimate Frisbee going on at Astoria Park! Sunday's gonna be a great day for that sort of thing!

But apart from hanging in Astoria, go recognize your natural or recently adopted connection to Greece on Sunday at the Greek Independence Day Parade in Manhattan. It starts at 1PM and goes down 5th Avenue from 59th Street to 79th Street. And Saturday, April 1 is April Fool's Day, which means it's not the April Fool's Parade on 5th Avenue. Yeah...yeah, that's right...sure, sure it is...

For your mind, body, and soul, this weekend you might think about checking out the Yoga Room, which has locations in both Astoria and LIC. There's a couple of classes going on this weekend, which you can check out here. The Spring Detox class sounds pretty good, and a nice thing to do on a rainy day. On rainy Saturday, you might mosey over to the Sculpture Center in LIC to catch a couple exhibits that are leaving after this weekend. Both the Anya Gallaccio and the Michael Ross exhibits end April 3. On Sunday, the Art-O-Mat is hosting the Performance Poets Association, with a free poetry reading from 2-4PM that afternoon.

Sunday is also the start of Daylight Savings Time. Remember to turn your clocks forward an hour Saturday night.

More fun, here.
