Weekanerd NYC: Coverboy Chris Ware, They Might Be Giants, and Great Films That Aren't The Superbowl

Friday, February 1
Remember that soul-crushing New Yorker cover we posted last Thanksgiving? That was a mere taste of what Chris Ware has to offer the magazine reading public. An exhibit celebrating his work for publications such as the New York and NYTimes, there'll be a reception from 6pm to 8pm. Click the title link for some previews, including this rough version of the aforementioned Thanksgiving cover...
The Johns and two great movies, after the jump...

Saturday, February 2
The ultimate in geek rock. Tickets for the floor are already sold out, so if you want to snag some $30 dollar balcony seats, act fast.

Here's a reminder of just how awesome these guys really are.

Sunday, February 3 Sure, the Super Bowl is a great excuse to get horribly drunk, and apparently it does feature some sort of New York theme this year, but it can' t be denied that a significant chunk of the nerd population has either a natural or learned aversion to sports. So if you're looking for something else to do this evening, you can choose between Punch-Drunk Love and Casablanca, playing on two separate screens at Galapagos as part of their MovieHouse series. Included with the evening is free popcorn, a short film before the feature, and a Casablanca trivia contest. All for only $5, and you can watch the superbowl commercials on YouTube when you get home.
