5 Things To Do This Week In NYC

Gallery Tour With ARTLOG And The Yale Club
Spend a Saturday browsing around NYC's coolest art exhibits, with a little assist. ARTLOG and The Yale Club have teamed for an exclusive guided tour of the Gagosian, the Tanya Bonakdar, the Pace Gallery, as well as other local art hubs, topping off the day with a champagne tasting and chocolates. Held in groups of limited numbers, you'll want to grab a ($40!) ticket before they're gone.
When: Saturday, May 19.
Where: Various galleries around NYC, including Gagosian, Tanya Bonakdar, Haunch of Venison, Larissa Goldston Gallery, and The Pace Gallery.
Slide Luck Bike Show
When it comes to exercising, a little bribe encouragement always helps. Barbecue, live music, prizes, a photobooth: yep, sounds like something worth peddling for. And, you'll find it all at this awesome uptown bike show.
When: Saturday, May 19th, from 6 to 10 p.m.
Where: Hostelling International, 891 Amsterdam Avenue (near West 104 Street); 212-932-2300.

"Modern Moves" Presented By The New York City Ballet Young Patron's Circle
Even if you're working with a recent-grad's budget, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a little fancy art and culture in NYC. This week the New York City Ballet Young Patron's Circle will be presenting three ballets —Alexei Ratmansky's "Russian Seasons," Christopher Wheeldon's "DGV: Danse à Grande Vitesse," and a new ballet by Benjamin Millepied — with tickets starting as low as $30. That price is way less painful than toe shoes ever were.
When: Wednesday, May 16, 7:30 p.m.
Where: David H. Kock Theatre, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, 212-870-5500.

The Met's Cloud City

When you hear Cloud City you may think storms are brewing, but at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, it's quite the contrary. Thanks to Argentinian artist, Tomás Saraceno, you can now visit an interactive sculpture on the museum's roof. Mirrored and modular structures cluster together to create a new way of interacting with the space on the roof and the city, reflected in the spheres. Ironically, we're guessing this amazing exhibit will be best experienced on a sunny day.
When: May 15 through November 4
Where:The Met, 1000 5th Avenue (at 82nd street); 212-535-7710.

Blood, Bones & Butter

Foodies will want to flock to the 92Y to witness the one-on-one chat between Mike Colameco and Gabrielle Hamilton. If you're not familiar yet with Hamilton's East Village restaurant, Prune, then this is a perfect intro to the woman behind it all. Take a journey with her from her earliest years, to her success in the New York restaurant biz, and her own published work, Blood, Bones & Butter.
When: Tuesday, May 15, at 12 p.m.
Where: 92Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue (near East 91st Street); 212-415-54701.
