Your Weekend Agenda

Events to catch this weekend, May 810.


Judy Collins at Café Carlyle.  

1. Sunday is Mother's Day! And we've got you covered with events mom will love, from a family party at the Central Park Zoo to a zydeco festival in Brooklyn.

2. We've also got brunch options and spa deals.

3. Mom may also want to enjoy the great weather outside at a free party in Fort Greene Park. Presented by the Red Bull Music Academy, Yardcore: Brooklyn Bashment will have dancehall jams, art installations, and Jamaican food from Miss Lily's.

4. Or check out a show inside. The singer-songwriter legend Judy Collins herself is at the Cafe Carlyle through May 19, and on Friday, country star Lee Brice gets things going at the Best Buy Theater.

5. Comedy-wise, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Goldbergs star Jeff Garlin is at Carolines from Thursday through Sunday

6.While on Sunday, Daily Show producer Jena Friedman previews her Edinburgh set American C*nt at the Annoyance Theater in Williamsburg. Probably not for sensitive ears.

7.Over at BAM, they're finishing up their stellar RadioLoveFest lineup. Highlights include a live show of WNYC's "Death, Sex & Money," featuring W. Kamau Bell, Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler, Luscious Jackson, and more; "Selected Shorts" with Bobby Cannavale, Robert Sean Leonard, and Parker Posey; a Mexican take on Morrissey's music; and more.

8. While the NY Indian Film Festival takes over various venues through May 9, screening movies like the romantic comedy Meet the Patels and the U.S. premiere of Saari Raat.

9. On Saturday, the New York Wine Festival offers live jazz and 200 wines to sample downtown ...

10. While all weekend in Queens, they're kicking off Queens Beer Week with a sampling from new brewery LIC Beer Project on Friday, a party featuring beers from every brewer in Queens on Sunday, and more. Come to think of it, mom would probably be into both of these as well.
