We know y’all love a good weekend roundup, so we’re bringing “What To Do This Weekend” back! The first weekend in February is full of public forums, film screenings and of course, ALLLL the Super Bowl parties.

Friday, Jan. 31

  • Tell the MTA what you really think about the brand new redesign of the Queens Bus Route (take a look and read all about it here). 6-7:30pm at the HANAC Harmony JVL Center at 27-40 Hoyt Ave S., Astoria 

  • Watch a local artist’s four short films for free (plus popcorn!) at The Local. They are all documentaries about obscure but super fascinating artists, either based in NYC or are ex-NYers living in the Catskills. One of the films even premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival! Artist’s Talk: An Evening of Short Films, from 6-8 pm, The Local NYC, 13-02 44th Ave.

  • Enjoy a wide-range of music acts at Gussy’s Bar. The Minettes namecheck both Buddy Holly and Bikini Kill, Ala Muerte takes songwriting to the next level, and Flyin’ J and the Ghostrobber brings energetic dual-guitar garage sound. The show starts at 7 p.m. and there is a $10 cover. 20-14 29th St.
  • Work on your short story at this free Narrative Structure in Short Fiction Workshop from the Newtown Literary Alliance.
  • You probably know, but Fridays are “Free Fridays” at MoMi! Free admission every Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. If you don’t mind spending a few extra bucks, it might be the perfect night to check out the brand new 2001: A Space Odyssey exhibit.

  • Check out the “Contract and Release” live art performance at the Noguchi Museum. Live dancers interact with Noguchi’s sculptures throughout the installation taking place at 1:30 and 3 p.m. (each performance lasts about one hour). [see top photo] 9-01 33rd Rd, Queens
  • Laugh ’til your stomach hurts at Jackknife Comedy—a rad monthly stand-up show the first Saturday of every month at The Creek and The Cave in Queens, hosted by two (self-proclaimed) dummies from Iowa named Gideon Hambright and Patrick Hastie! 10-93 Jackson Ave. from 8-10pm, buy tickets online.

Sunday, Feb. 2
