(sponsored)This Saturday, it’s that rarest of things: a really good reason to be in Manhattan on a weekend. Bedford + Bowery – New York magazine’s site covering North Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan – is bringing together the best of both worlds for an outdoor festival of food, shopping and music. Come for the free beer (while it lasts!) from Brooklyn Brewery; stay for the beats by members of LCD Soundsystem; and sip still more exotic brews from Greenpoint’s own Torst, whose newly Michelin-starred chef Daniel Burns will be serving up duck sandwiches. You’ll also get to try Vietnamese grub from Ridgewood’s Bunker, Malaysian street food from Williamsburg’s Pasar Malam, Japanese rice burgers(!) from East Village’s Yonekichi, Icelandic stews from the LES’s Skal, Korean-American fried bird from the Seoul Chicken, southern grub from Empire Biscuit and lots more.
Rad vendors like Etsy NY will be selling vintage clothing, home wares, jewelry, books, and zines. For Halloween, Bushwick’s Catland has all your occult items and Greenpoint’s “Wizard of Odd,” Billy Leroy, will be staging a one-day-only comeback of his famous Houston Street antiques and oddities tent. There’ll be used records – and brand new vinyl from Greenpoint label Captured Tracks. And speaking of music! Your DJs for the day will be none other than DFA Records artists Museum of Love (featuring Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem) and Nancy Whang (LCD, The Juan Maclean). It’s all FREE and happening this Saturday from 11am to 6pm at the Hester Street Fair, at Hester and Essex Streets on the LES. Find more info here and follow @bedbow for updates!

Queens’ largest outdoor flea is bringing the diversity of the borough to the market this weekend. In addition to vendors selling vintage clothing, furniture, collectibles, jewelry, antiques, art and amazing food this Saturday and Sunday (October 5&6), LIC Flea will host a Weekend of Japanese Culture.
There will be booths dedicated to Japanese food, music, art and more. Fan favorite Oconomi will be serving up their Japanese vegetable pancakes in addition to vendors offering stirred fried noodles known as Yakisoba, Japanese curry, rice balls and “creative” sushi.
Celebrating Japanese culture, children and adults will be able to try their hand at Japanese calligraphy with an instructor on site who will teach participants how to hold a brush. There will also be an origami station where you can turn paper into art and Kabuki face painting, featuring faces of a traditional Japanese play.
Along with the delicious Japanese treats and activities, visitors will be able to enjoy three unique performers. Female geisha dancers in costume will perform in a group called Salme and Japanese pop singer Reni Reni will also make an appearance. The final performance combines music with audience interaction as the Poku Poku Boys play Koto, a traditional string instrument, while translating names from English to Japanese in calligraphy, allowing audience members to take a piece of the performance home.
