CorePower Yoga in Bryant Park (FREE, 0800-0900)

incuBETA, Feb 2019 edition (Free, 1830-2100)

Not really sure how this works or how easy it is to drop-in but the idea is that it’s a community-sourced incubator. Could be a cool thing to get involved with if you’re thinking about building a company / are interested in the space.

Friday (2019.03.01)

Knockdown Center: spring 2019 exhibition opening reception (FREE?, 1800-2100)

Like many of the popular event spaces in Bushwick (think Elsewhere Space, Lot 45, and House of Yes), Knockdown Center tries to position itself as a focal point of artistic expression and community beyond a simple show destination. One way they do this is by housing rotating collections of art from local artists and beyond.

Art exhibitions / openings are always hit or miss for me, but this could be a good excuse to go out to Bushwick early then hop around to local digs like The Rookery or Clabrije’s.

Location: Knockdown Center, Bushwick

Saturday (2019.03.02)

TEDx Columbia University ($70, 1600-1900)

I’ve never been to a TEDx but I watch them online sometimes. Pretty steep pricing but could be worth it if you’re tryna be academic / learn some things.

Location: Upper West

Sunday (2019.03.03)

HackItTogether women’s hackathon ($20, 0830-2030)

HackItTogether is running an all-women’s hackathon this sunday. If you’ve been at all interested in learning more about code / building something yourself, I’d highly recommend trying out a hackathon. They’re a great way to meet up with other people trying to learn / build and you usually get some food out of it. You also help support gender equality in tech so that’s a plus.
