FREE Cartoons, Culture and Cereal: This is How We Do 2011

We cried, we laughed, maybe we even puked a little bit, but we survived another year. If you’re not to busy drowning yourself in Bloody Mary’s, there is plenty of awesome free stuff in our fair city this weekend. After all, do you really want the first face you see in 2011 to be the Papa John’s Delivery Man?, I think not.

FREE Admission to Brooklyn Museum

Due to the holiday, the Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturdays is getting switched to this Sunday and it’s also the last day of the Fred Tomaselli exhibit, whose trippy creation you can see above. Admission is free from 11:00am-6:00pm, so get there early to avoid the crowds and check out this amazing exhibit.

Spoons, Toons & Booze

Whether it was He-man and Shera, Thundercats, or Snorks, there was nothing better than waking up on a Saturday morning to a heaping bowl of sugary goodness and Saturday Morning Cartoons. The only thing that could possibly improve this nostalgic indulgence is booze, and that is where the Knitting Factory comes in. Every Saturday around brunch time, the Knitting Factory will be serving up all your favorite cereals from childhood and screening cartoons from the 60’s to the 90’s. I’ve never thought to pair bloody mary’s with Cap’n Crunch before, but something tells me it will be wonderful.

Laura S - Spendthrift Scribe

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
