Learn the in's and out's of LinkedIn at this free LinkedIn Career Workshop. There's also an interview prep session after the workshop. Couldn't hurt.

Wouldn't the world be a better place if more people broke into dance like in the final scene of Slumdog Millionaire. Learn how to Jai Ho at this Bollywood Dance Workshop.

The guys behind are throwing a Tapas House Party. A $20 ticket gets you (and a friend) into a houseparty with bottomless sangria and homemade Spanish-Greek tapas.

SUNDAY 58° few showers 

There's a meetup on Sunday produced by called Brunch in Astoria for Newbies to the Area. Kind of self-explanatory. If you're new to the area or looking to make some new friends, give it a try.

There's a fairly new Open Mic Night at a fairly new pub that features some fairly established local musicians. Should be a fairly awesome time.

This event has my attention. Conjuring Tonight is a dinner + MAGIC SHOW at one of our favorite new spots in town, The Astor Room. Anxious to see how well they grip their class as a bunny is pulled from a hat, but this place doesn't disappoint.

Guests visiting The Astor Room for drinks or dinner are invited to join me at a table we’ll have set for as long as they see fit -- 15, 20, 30 minutes -- for some classic close-up magic, and perhaps a little mindreading.  We're looking to break away from the formal “dinner-show” concept and create an experience that’s casual, new, and truly unique to the area.

Also, and this is very important to mention, I’d like to assure you and your readers that I won’t be pulling any rabbits out of hats. I don’t even own a hat.
