This week, you’ll be able to see a full moon just after the stroke of midnight on Friday the 13th... but don’t let that scare you. There hasn’t been a full moon on a Friday the 13th since October 2000. This is the sort of night that only happens a few times in a life.
If you’re superstitious, you can play it safe and stay indoors with a copy of Friday the 13th. Or you can tempt fate, push your luck, and have a night you’ll still be talking about by the next full moon on Friday the 13th in August 2049. Make it a weekend to remember with a honey tasting in a Brooklyn cemetery, a $13 flash tattoo on the Lower East Side, or a late-night screening of The Warriors on the streets where it was filmed -- we’ve rounded up everything you have to eat, drink, see, and do in NYC this weekend.
Friday, September 13
Part comedy-show, part cringe-fest, and part clear-eyed take on the trauma of dating in the swipe-happy surveillance state, UpDating puts New Yorkers on their first dates live on stage. During the show, you can DM the daters discussion topics, give real-time feedback on their performances, or even offer yourself up as an alternative. It’s the perfect place to bring your own date -- even if that goes disastrously, at least you didn’t have an audience.
Cost: Tickets are $15; drinks available for purchase
