It’s not just Super Bowl Sunday this weekend. It’s also hip-hop weekend at the BRIC House and it’s the Lunar New Year — and there are plenty of ways to celebrate it all.
First up, BRIC Hip-Hop celebrates Black History Month with film screenings, conversations and the inaugural HOUSEPARTY featuring DJ Quiana Parks. Acme Smoked Fish and Bagel Point in Greenpoint have teamed up to give away lox, bagels and schmear while supplies last on Friday. Plus, a bunch of ongoing shows enter their final weekend of performances.
Saturday morning has Cupid’s Chase 5K in Prospect Park and there’s a Flower Market pop-up at CIBONE. That evening, there’s a classical music tribute to the songs of Taylor Swift. Also Saturday, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz debut their massive “Giants” exhibit at Brooklyn Museum.
Sunday brings the Big Game to a bunch of venues around town, but first, the 35th Annual Lunar New Year Parade celebrates the Year of the Dragon with a special program, traditional firecrackers, and performances. The lineup begins at 8th Avenue and 50th Street and reaches its finale on 61st Street.
