Girl Power, Cocktails and Ice Cream: 5 Things to Do This Weekend in New York

As of this week, Hillary Clinton is officially the first female presidential nominee from a major party in the USA. Regardless of your political preference, that win for women is reason enough to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than by attending a Girl Power Day at the Hester Street Fair this weekend? If you live in New York or are here for the weekend, there is that and so much more to smile about below.

First, go to Girl Power Day at the Hester Street Fair on Saturday.


The Hester Street Fair’s Girl Power Day will feature performances, classes and food, all by local women.

All that girl power making you hungry? Check out Beatnik Parlor.


Make sure to stop by the Beatnik Parlor ice cream stand at the Hester Street Fair. You will be delighted by their signature ice cream sandwiches, along with orange cream-sicle push pops and raspberry sorbet.

Oh, and did I mention that MR model Megan is one of the super rad women behind Beatnik Parlor?

The Keeper, the latest exhibit at The New Museum, explores the items that people keep and collect over a lifetime. By presenting these objects in a museum setting, the exhibit seeks to question what makes something valuable and worthy of a collection.
