Postcards, Cider and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, November 2, 2018

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a postcard show to a celebration of cider. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.

Here’s something you don’t hear everyday: a challenge where teams of architects and engineers build enormous sculptures made out of unopened cans of food, all for charity. Well it may not be something you hear everyday, but you’re going to hear it today, because it’s going on at Brookfield Place.
