Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In a city like New York, 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 fashions aplenty to a Swedish classic. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.

New York Fashion Week

Say yes to the dress…and the pants…and the shirt… and everything else! Fashion Week is here, and with it come new looks—some good, some bad, but all very, very interesting. Make sure you stay on top of these styles before they hit the shelves.

The Seventh Seal

Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 masterpiece The Seventh Seal is a pop culture icon for good reason. Even if you haven’t seen it, you’ve certainly seen its famous chess-game-with-death parodied somewhere. And now, it’s screening as part of Film Forum’s centennial retrospective of Bergman’s work. If you’re looking for a Scandinavian meditation on mortality set in the medieval era, this is your flick.

Friday, February 9th and Saturday, February 10th


Run with the Cookies

How could something so delicious seem so…deadly? This Saturday, the New York Road Runners will be conducting a running tour of some of the Upper West Side’s best coffee and cookie shops. Can you run on a full stomach of milk, coffee and chocolate chip cookies? Only one way to find out.

McInerney at Hakkasan

Wondering what the year of the dog has in store? Well, fortunately for you, Jay McInerney has brought his writer’s wit to midtown hotspot Hakkasan. Bite into one of the restaurant’s black and white macaron fortune cookies and read one of McInerney’s droll predictions for the coming year.

Through February 28th


“One Basquiat” at the Brooklyn Museum

Last fall, the world was shocked when Jean Michel Basquiat’s 1982 painting Untitled sold at auction to Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa for $110 million—the highest price ever paid for a piece of American art. Now, the painting is embarking on a world tour before it returns back to Japan. Its first stop, naturally is at the Brooklyn Museum, where it will be on view until March.
