Memorial Day Weekend Guide

We’ve got plenty of ideas for your “stay-cation” this Memorial Day Weekend.  If there are other L.E.S. events or activities that you’d like us to know about, please email us.

The weather might be too warm to resist taking a field trip over to Pier 40 for some FREE kayaking, brought to you by the NYC Downtown Boathouse.  Usually only available on weekends, they’ll be open this Monday for the holiday.  Walk-ups are welcome from 9a – 6p with the last boat going out at 5:30p.

X-YU Festival Comes to Dixon Place

Starting tonight, choreographers from Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia will participate in the X-YU Festival, a first-ever festival of new dance from the former Yugoslav countries, at Dixon Place. The festival, a collaboration with Dixon Place, Wax Factory and Dance New Amsterdam, will present three U.S. premiers in rotating repertory through Saturday, May 29th.  (You can see all three pieces on Saturday.) As noted in the New Yorker: The Slovene dancers Maja Delak and Luka Princic offer a violent, punk, and multimedia vision of love.
