Wrapping up a week of embracing springtime; lighter clothes, after dinner walks and maybe the kids off from school  - we've rounded up a selection of the local events to ease into the weekend and help refresh all you busy parents for the week ahead. From Fri-Yay! to Sunday Funday here are our top picks!

1. Tribeca Film Festival - Stronger than ever in it's 16th year the TFF has something for everyone. We are particularly excited for the throwback family movies focusing on sports. Angels in the Outfield & Space Jam!!! First come first serve to these family friendly & free showings this Saturday, April 22nd. Also part of the 'Retrospective Special Screenings" is the 90's Disney classic Aladdin & the more grown up version of Beauty and the Beast , 1942's La Belle et la Bete with a Conversation with Philip Glass, and Reservoir Dogs including a 25th anniversary convo with director Quentin Tarantino and some of the cast! The following weekend -Friday, August 28th -Saturday, August 29th - TFF cuts the ribbon on the inaugural Tribeca Games Festival at Spring Studios.

2. Taste of Battery Park - Right outside the doors of our Babesta at Brookfield Place shop, is the 2nd annual Taste of Battery Park this Sunday, April 23rd from 12-3pm. 19 restaurants will set up shop along the Battery Park City Waterfront to showcase sublime eats. Proceeds benefit middle school PS89 (our Babesta Cribz neighboors on Warren street). Be sure to bring your appetite.

3. MoMa PS 1: Ian Cheng: We are intrigued by Ian Cheng's 1st solo presentation in the USA, EMISSARIES. Opened earlier this April, the exhibit features Cheng's Emissary trilogy. The series of 3 live simulations, is made up of open-ended animations without a fixed outcome (aka live simulation according to Cheng.) As curious as we are? The exhibit shows at MoMa PS1 through September 25th with Cheng presenting at the Modern Monday series this Monday, April 24th at 7pm.

Let the countdown to Friday at 5pm begin!
