QC: At The Weekend 1

A few scenes from the weekend, spent kicking around
the city in rather unseasonably warm weather…

The best kind of tents and street style photographers
flocked to Lincoln Center this weekend.QC: At The Weekend 1

As I mentioned, I made it to the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts for an excellent exhibit on Katharine Hepburn’s costumes for stage and screen.  Incidentally, I discovered I had unwittingly purchased the accompanying book some months back: Katharine Hepburn: Rebel Chic.  Do give it a look, it’s quite good — especially if you didn’t make it to the exhibit!QC: At The Weekend 1 QC: At The Weekend 1 QC: At The Weekend 1

While there was plenty to love about the exhibit, my absolute favorite part was when I overheard an older couple discussing the trousers that Katharine tended to wear.  The wife, who you can see above, wore a fedora and what looked like a man’s overcoat.  When she said she wanted a pair of pants just like Katharine, her husband immediately said that he thought she would look amazing in them.  Sort of completely made my day.QC: At The Weekend 1

On my way to catch Amour at Film Forum (which I highly recommend!), I nipped into the newly opened Houston Hall to sample some of their house drafts.  Not only is it a formerly abandoned FBI garage complete with exposed trusses and industrial touches, it’s also the largest — and prettiest! — beer garden I can think of downtown.  The Standard had better watch their back.
