If the city happens to be getting you down, this is one of those weekends that remind you why you slog through every day, the options available to you are varied and outstanding. Here’s to keeping on keeping on.
This is probably the best weekends-worth of shows all year, so you should probably stop reading at this point and make your plans, if you haven’t missed the boat already.
I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, survived valentine’s day, and is generally looking forward to making plans for Spring. After a couple more quiet weeks show-wise, we’re back with some fine choices.
