In Town for the Weekend? Some Last-Minute Suggestions

The Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra will present an all-Russian program this Sunday afternoon, February 20, starting at 3:00, at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, Clinton and Montague streets. The concert will feature Mikhail Glinlka’s Overture to “Ruslan and Ludmilla”, Reinhold Glière’s Horn Concerto (featuring soloist Marshall Sealy), and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5. Marc Cerri will be the guest conductor. Admission is a $15 suggested donation.

We’ve already noted that the first film in the Brooklyn Historical Society’s series of movies about the Dodgers, The Brooklyn Dodgers: An American Treasure, will be playing at BHS, 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton) this Sunday, February 20, starting at 2:00 p.m. In addition, tomorrow (Saturday, February 19), starting at 2:00 p.m., historian John Zinn will lecture at BHS on “The Legacy of Charles Ebbets”, president and owner of the baseball team from 1902 to 1925, for whom the Dodgers’ famous ballpark was named. The lecture is free with museum admission, which is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors, children over 12 (under 12 are free) and teachers, and free for BHS members.

    Not sure this is perfectly relevant, but I have to ask: will the Calexico Cart be out in Brooklyn Bridge Park today? The weather is gorgeous, and I have a craving.

    Petey Slap, I was just thinking this afternoon, “I hope the Kosher falafel cart will be out by the Municipal Building!”

    I miss those toppings.
