WEEKEND BULLETIN: THINK GLOBALLY, SHOP LOCALLY

Today is something called “Small Business Saturday,” which is supposed to encourage people to spend money at small businesses. We wholeheartedly support the sentiment and hope that it can be extended to Sunday and, you know, every day after that. Also, the GreenFlea Market is open on Saturday this weekend (as well as Sunday, per regular), and every weekend until December 18.

After shopping in the neighborhood, there are also lots of opportunities to expand your horizons this weekend: an African Diaspora Film Fest, a tour of Seneca Village (the African-American village evicted to make way for Central Park), Irish priests singing rock and roll, and some free classical music concerts that you can find on our calendar.
