TGIF! Here are a few events to keep in mind when looking for things to do in Long Island City this weekend (8/5 – 8/7):
Fri. 8/5- 8/13: The Two Gentleman of Verona
Come see this Shakespeare classic at The Secret Theatre, performed by acclaimed comedy troupe Face Off Unlimited.
Shows: Fri @8pm, Sat @3pm/8pm, Sun @ 5pm. $18
44-02 23rd Street
Sat.- Popolopen/Peekskill Festival and Fireworks Trip
Here’s a blurb from LIC Boathouse: “We will head 3-4 miles up river and explore Iona Island, go past Bear Mountain Pier, under Bear Mountain Bridge into Popolopen Gorge. Four bridges converge there so it’s great for photos. Plus, there’s a beautiful waterfall and natural 20′ deep pool beckoning to you at the end. This is the best swimming spot on the Hudson!”
Sounds like an amazing summer event! For more info: http://www.licboathouse.org/index.php/2011/07/22/popolopenpeekskill-festival-and-fireworks-trip-saturday-8611/
