West Bank Story
Come join RA Fooz and Noura in watching the West Bank Story. A satirical movie with serious undertones, The West Bank Story captures a small piece of the big conflict between the Israeli and Palestinian people. Funny, short, full of music, the movie is sure to be enjoyable and eye-opening.
Snacks will be served!
When? Friday, September 30th @ 6:00 p.m.
Where? 4th Floor Lounge
Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. This movie is intense. You need to come see it.

Neighborhood Concert: Karen Vuong and Carrie-Ann Matheson
Hear rising opera star Karen Vuong belt her heart out to music played by Canadian pianist Carrie-Ann Matheson, an assistant conductor at The Metropolitan Opera. The performance, which takes place at 5pm at Advent Lutheran Church on the Upper West Side, is part of Carnegie Hall’s free Neighborhood Concerts series. Of note: legendary opera singer Marilyn Horne mentored Vuong; the luminary has also collaborated in recital form with Matheson. In other words, expect a showcase with a pedigree.
Sunday, October 2
Head back to the Middle Ages with family and friends, or use this event as an admittedly nerdy (but creative) date idea. The 27th-annual Medieval Festival, from 11:30am to 6pm in Fort Tryon Park, will feature music, dance, magic and other performances and conclude with an actual joust between knights on horseback. Crafts, clothing and food will also be on offer (not for free), but the people-watching will provide the day’s ultimate entertainment, especially if Renaissance gowns and knights in armor are in the cards. (Yes, we’re thinking of Role Models, too.) If it rains, the festival will be rescheduled for October 9.
Monday, October 3
Bryant Park Pétanque
Hone your lawn-bowling skills every weekday from 11am to 6pm (weather permitting) with free lessons given by La Boule New Yorkaise, a local club for pétanque lovers. In case you’re wondering, pétanque is a French game in which players throw metal balls (“boules,” en Française), aiming to get them as close as possible to a smaller wooden ball (the “cochonnet,” en pétanque). And if that description reminds you a little of bocce, well, that’s understandable—but note that Bryant Park doesn’t offer it. For bocce, you’ll want to try two of Brooklyn’s fine drinking establishments—Floyd, NY and Union Hall.
