I am on Long Island. It's sort of awesome, as usual; I'm at an RNA conference at Cold Spring Harbor.

But on Saturday, the conference ends and I schlep my stuff into the city for an extra day and night of fun. Only one problem - the fun. I haven't had any time to think or get maps or anything. In general I'm fine with exploring a city on my own; there are plenty of museums and such, and that doesn't take much planning. But I'll be sad if I'm in NYC on a Saturday night and I don't find some interesting thing to do in the evening. That's the part of solo travel that can be a downer. I'm not quite asking livejournal for someone to adopt me for the evening (at least not quite yet) but hey, if I'm forgetting someone who's in NYC...

Also, I wish I had an iphone. No need to plan anything if I have the internet in my pocket!

Does the RNA conference have a complimentary DNA conference next door ?

Black 47 is a good Irish punk band that is based in NY. See if you can see them play.

Q. Does the band still have a residency in New York City?
A. Black 47 plays Connolly's on West 45th Streer between Broadway and 6th Avenue most Fall and Winter Saturday nights. But do check our tour schedule to confirm or call Connolly's at 212-597-5126.

I'm not too far away in $INVENTOR, NJ for Floating World... but there is no at-door admission this year.

There's a lovely 24-hour Apple Store on Fifth Avenue, which would be happy to sell you an iPhone.

A friend of mine runs jello wrestling matches at a lesbian bar in Greenwich Village, but sadly it looks like they're on hiatus at the moment:

You should friend [ profile] sadisticseraph and tell her I say hi: interesting things to do seem to congeal out of the air around her.
