The Weekender…10/18-10/20


Looking for something to do this weekend?

Find your inner Sherlock Holmes as you search for Banksy in the act!

Nola by Banksy


As part of his new residency “Better Out Than In” Banksy is traveling all around NYC creating 31 new pieces during the month of October, and even having unannounced art sales on the streets. Unsuspecting passer-bys are purchasing works of art by a famous artist for knockoff prices. For those of you in-the-know, when you come across a Banksy graffiti piece, there will be a number next to it. Dial 1-800-656-4271, type in the corresponding number, and listen to the audio guide. Maybe you’ll even come across another unannounced sale. For pictures of his new pieces, go to the Banksy website.

Vegetarians beware this is for bacon lovers only!
