Mundo is technically in Long Island City, but since it was voted a BOAST winner for Best Vegetarian food, they are certainly on our radar. First, the food and cocktails, which have an international and Latin vibe, are both excellent, and are certainly worth checking out. Second, there is almost always something going on at Mundo besides the food and drink. There are Flamenco and Tango shows, live music many nights of the week, and other events, such as screenings. This Thursday the 14th at 7pm is the opening reception for the art show The Mundo We Live In. Many of the artists will be attending, and there will be live music, and DJ sets later on in the night. You can find out more about this event on our HAPPENING page, and on their website, at mundonewyork.com.

An exhibition space rather than a collecting institution, MoMA PS1 devotes its energy and resources to displaying the most experimental art in the world, and supports innovation in contemporary art. Warm Up, a popular program on Saturdays in the summer, takes place in the courtyard where DJs spin and people dance for hours.
