A Few Ways to Support the L.E.S. This Weekend
Here are a few special events happening this weekend. If you know of more ways to get out and support our neighborhood as we continue to recover and rebuild after Hurricane Sandy, email us here, post them on Facebook here, or send out a tweet to @LoDownNY on twitter.
- The Lo-Down is helping to sponsor a pet drive in areas where organizations are leading the efforts for human aid but have few initiatives for pets. LES residents can drop off pet items on Saturday, Nov. 10, at Ruff Club, 34 Ave. A in the East Village, from noon to 3 p.m. More on this here.
- A long list of Lower East Side and East Village merchants (including Economy Candy!) are offering families a chance to have Halloween “Take II” this weekend. They’ve teamed up with the people at Nightmare Haunted House to give candy away to Trick ‘r Treaters between 4-7 pm on Saturday, November 10th. When you see a sign inside a window that says “Participant Location” you know that’s a spot that you can Trick ‘r Treat. More on this here.
- The Peck Slip Pickle Festival will take place as planned this Sunday from 11a – 5pm. Some of the vendors taking part on Sunday were scheduled to be involved in the Lower East Side’s pickle festival, which was cancelled due to the hurricane. More here.
- As part of the 3rd Annual Jewish Heritage Festival, there will be a special walking tour to support the Jewish Conservancy. Tours and festivities, including an opening for an exhibit by acclaimed photographer Rebecca Lepkoff, kick off at 10:45 am. More here.
