The Freakin’ Weekend: 02
Last time I checked it was Monday, now Friday has arrived once again.. and I ain’t mad. TGIF. As most of you already know this Saturday is International Natural Hair Meetup Day. There’s amazing events happening all over, including For The Naturals Who Color. This weekend outfit is for a chill, relaxed fun weekend.
+ For The Naturals Who Color @ 1185 Rogers Avenue | Sat May 18 @ 6:30-9:30p – $10
If you’re still don’t have plans for International Natural Hair Meetup Day, head on down to Brooklyn and join Janel and I for a night of coloring. Janel will be sharing useful tips, tricks & techniques for using color & henna on natural hair. Tickets are still available at ftnwhocolor.eventbrite.com.

+ The Great GoogaMooga @ Prospect Park | Fri May 17 – Sun May 19 – $55-$134
If you’re looking for a cool.. probably impromptu.. food-and-music extravaganza, The Great GoogaMooga has got you covered kicking off with a Friday night concert headlined by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Flaming Lips. If you consider yourself a major foodie, there is a marathon lineup of grub from a whopping 85 spots, as well as over 100 wines and 75 brews to choose from.
+ Party with the Papaya King @ 3 St. Marks Place | Sat May 18 @ 12-4p – FREE
If you don’t know about the Papaya King franchise in New York, you’re probably living under some kind of rock. In lieu of opening a new location in the East Village, they are celebrating with tunes, fun.. but most importantly free franks. Take a minute out of your day to pick you up some free lunch.
+ Mad. Sq. Eats 2013 @ Madison Square Park | opening Fri May 17 until May 31 – FREE
Once again, calling all foodies. Save yourself the subway fare–for 28 days only, this semiannual pop-up market brings the best grub from the five boroughs right to Madison Square Park.
+ Sex & the City Hotspots Tour | Sat May 18 or Sun May 19 @ 10am – $42
Grab your girls and follow in the footsteps of Carrie Bradshaw & Co. See where they drank, shopped and gossiped. Since this starts so early, you & your girls could enjoy a wonderful brunch afterwards in the city. Get your own Sex & the City on. For more information about tour, call 212.209.3370.
