Tonight, August 12 Liquid Sound Lounge Summer 2011 Dance Boat Party: This legendary party is packed with great people dancing to the music of Jeannie Hopper’s Liquid Sound Lounge. No attitude, no pretension, just super soulful conscientious party people with a purpose! Partial proceeds go to benefit Art for Progress. Plus, who doesn’t love a good boat party?
Saturday, August 13 Mafia Walking Tour: This popular and exciting weekly tour through NYC’s Little Italy explores the former social clubs, homes and haunts of some of the most powerful 20th century mobsters, and uncovers the truth behind many Mafia legends.
Saturday, August 13 The Canadian Invasion: Canada’s internationally renowned Impatient Theatre Co. takes over The PIT for one night only in this special engagement that has nothing to do with Canadians winning the War of 1812 or burning down Washington on August 24, 1814. This time they’re only setting fire to the stage metaphorically.
Sunday, August 14 48 HOURS IN HARLEM: “48 hours in Harlem” is a project by a collective of nine producers aimed at re-invigorating the Harlem community and stimulating emerging African American artists. Six playwrights are offered six classic, provocative plays. They are challenged to re-conceive these classics into a ten-minute format. Six savvy directors and 18 accomplished actors will bring these raw impressions to life, all in a weekend, to be performed on Sunday evening.
Wednesday, August 17 Beer Dinner With Guest Chef Ryan Tate: Join Guest Chef Ryan Tate (formerly with Savoy) for another amazing beer-pairing dinner extravaganza! This dinner will include a five-course meal paired with Shelton Brothers’ beers, including wild ales from Jolly Pumpkin and lambics from Cantillon.
