what's on

Greetings, NYConfidants!

Where did the seasons go? Or, is summer actually here? I can't tell. It keeps raining...

That said, the sun is usually out for The Mermaid Parade, that raucous celebration of the ancient mythology and honky-tonk rituals Coney Island. Guthrie fans, go see King Neptune, Arlo, and his sister, as Queen Mermaid. That same night, The Moth is doing some experimental storytelling at There's A Place For Us, The Moth at Green-Wood Cemetery. Over the weekend, the New York Adventure Club has a few new ones, specifically, to Execution Rocks Lighthouse an unassuming lighthouse in Long Island Sound filled with stories of fires, shipwrecks, murders, and ghostly encounters. And of course, don't forget the Women’s World Cup, broadcast on an 80-inch screen with "grass" and lunchtime concessions at the Archway in DUMBO, or watching Wimbledon, where your faithful art journalist will be soaking in the tennis culture until 10 July.

Two events that are a no miss:
29 June, Kings County Tennis League is putting on an LGBT mixer at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe. Come see how LGBT volunteers connect by helping teach tennis to underprivileged kids.

31 June, MTG Pride Parade Float: The Metropolitan Tennis Group is driving its very first float down 5th Avenue for the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall. Come stand on the truck, wave flags, dance with tennis balls, and see the crowds. 3pm, 5th Ave and 35th Street.
