Here are some exciting events and sites to check out in downtown New York this week, courtesy of Gogobot:


1. Chicago’s Juicy Beef
Hank’s Juicy Beef (Tribeca)
Monday through Friday from 11:30 AM – 9:00 PM

For a taste of Chicago’s Italian beef sandwich culture, check out the newly opened Hank’s Juicy Beef. The short and sweet menu includes the quintessential Italian beef sandwich and classics like eggplant parm or Italian sausage. Make sure you complete your meal with a zesty Italian ice.


2. Dance Comedy
UCB Theater (Chelsea)
Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 11:00 PM

Those who revel in the incompetence of others will surely enjoy watching NATIONALS: An Amateur Comedy Dance Tournament where real amateurs (which is really a euphemism for those that have no clue) will perform choreographed dances. $5


3. OSGEMEOS Exhibit
Lehmann Maupin (Chelsea)
Monday – Friday, 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM (Sept. 8 – Oct. 22)

OSGEMEOS’ new, large scale exhibit “Silence of the Music” will feature a wide range of works that trace the artistic evolution of Brazilian brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo. The immersive installation “combines drawing, painting, collage, mixed media sculpture, and kinetic and audio elements” and pays homage to music with a multi-sensory experience. FREE


4. Kitty Labor Day BBQ
Koneko (Lower East Side)
Monday, Sept. 5 from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM

We are always looking for ways to up our Labor Day BBQ game and that’s why we are going to throw in some cute cats into the mix. Koneko is throwing a feline BBQ on their outdoor patio with  all-you-can-eat burgers, hotdogs, and beer for $35 per person for 2 hours.


5. Postcard Lives
Rizzoli Bookstore (Flatiron)
Thursday, Sept. 8 from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Writing postcards is a lost art, but two artists, one in London and one in New York, spent a year exchanging weekly hand-drawn postcards detailing the ins and outs of their urban lives; “complaints, distractions, phone addictions, physical contact, and desires.” Come hear them talk with Maria Popova (Brain Pickings) about their new book “Dear Data.” FREE      


If you know of great events happening in your neck of the woods that might be a fit for a future GoGo This Week column, please send details about the event to events@gogobot.com
