Your Weekend Agenda

Events to check out this weekend, October 1719.


Richard Hell belongs to the blank generation.  

1. The New York City Food and Wine Festival is happening! Let's eat. There are still tickets left for plenty of events, like a cooking class with Martha Stewart, a vegetarian seminar with Amanda Cohen, tastings, and more.

2. Speaking of eating and drinking, the Zombiecon costumed crawl happens all day Saturday. If you're not staggering as part of your getup, by the end of the day you will be, because, you know, booze. (Please, be responsible.)

7. While on Sunday, you can catch a comedy show named after the Home Alone star, featuring up-and-coming talents Andrew Fisher, Katie Hartman, Nimesh Patel, and more. We wonder if Mac's ever shown up ...

8. Face your inner demons at Sarah Kane's final play, 4:48 Psychosis, at St. Ann's, its first and only American engagement.

9. Or find some candy demons to demolish with your face in our Halloween package. It's only two weeks away!
