If you buy one travel book about NYC, it should be Broke Ass Stuart’s. If you buy a second, it should be the Zinester’s Guide to NYC by Ayun Halliday. Broke Ass Stuarts lists just about every decent dive bar in the metro area, while the zinester’s guide encourages people to play bike polo in parks.
If you’re too broke to buy either, you can just go Housing Works Bookstore Cafe tomorrow night for the release party of the Zinester’s Guide to NYC.Bushwick Book Club will be playing songs based on entries from the guide. Contributors will have a mini-zine fair, so you can score some zines and comics. Guests can also compete for low budget prizes in a game called the $2 pyramid. (And buy a snack, the proceeds go to help fight AIDS and help the homeless).
