What: A talk on Kubernetes and how modern enterprises are leveraging it.
When: 2019.01.28, 1900-2100
Location: IBM CODE NYC
Brief: Kubernetes is cool and the IBM Code NYC events have been relatively good at giving high level introductions to some of the newer technologies, complete with some internal advocates to answer questions you might have. If you're interested in k8s, might be worthwhile.
Pigeon pages January reading
What: Writers reading stuff they wrote
When: 2019.01.28, 1900-2100
Location: Pigeon Pages, Brooklyn
Brief: I haven't been to a reading in awhile but this could be cool. I don't think that it's poetry, probably more prose given the "literature" tag so if you go, just be warned it could really be them reading anything /shrug
Backroom speakeasy mondays
What: Every Monday, the backroom hosts musicians playing ~jazz~
When: Mondays 2130-0030 (doors at 1930)
Location: The Backroom
Brief: Ever since the Roost stopped doing their Thursday live music stuff I've been looking for an alternative. This might be it.

When: 2019.01.29, 1830-2230
Location: Carbon Five NY
Brief: I've been trying to put something similar together via Make Sessions NYC but it's been slow to kick off so this might be a good one to try on the last Tuesday of each month.
DayBreaker NYC // Havana Mornings
What: DayBreaker is a cool org that puts on early morning, sober parties. This one comes with the option to add a salsa class.
When: 2019.01.30, 0600-0900
Price: $25 just dance, $40 to include salsa class

Brief: DayBreaker is a super dope organization. If I could ever get up early enough to get to their events, I'd go infinitely more

Passport to Bushwick launch party
What: A launch party for Passport to Bushwick, open bar from 2100-2200
When: 2019.01.30 2000-???
Location: Hart Bar
Brief: I don't think this event itself will be that dope, but I kinda like the idea behind the launch. Passport to Bushwick is a coupon book (go ahead, make your Jew joke) that gets you a free drink at 19 bars in Bushwick for $25. I like Bushwick, drinks, and free stuff so they might actually get my money.
Web Animation Series: CSS & SVGs

When: 2019.01.31, 1830-2130

When: 2019.02.01 1800-2359
Price: FREEMIUM, free to get in but more perks for paying
Brief: I've been wanting to go to this for the past few months. Seems like it could be a very good date spot if you've got someone you want to go with. The $75 option for two seems expensive at face value, but if it gets you seated and drinks and, like me, you like to split the bill that's only $37.50 for a pretty balling tie.

When: 2019.02.01 2000-2359
Location: MoMA PS1
Brief: I still haven't been to PS1 so this seems like a pretty awesome way to see it, see their current exhibit before it leaves on 2019.02.25, and have an odd night out. V interested in going to this one.
Flickr photo walk
What: A photo walk to iconic places with a bunch of photographers, led by some famous photographer
When: 2019.02.02, 0900-1100
Brief: Earlier this year I hung up my camera to focus more on my other, more core outlets but this seems like a great opportunity to meet and work with fellow, local photographers if you're still wielding your lens (and think you can get up before noon on a Saturday).

What: Code workshops followed by showcases, all for free
When: 2019.02.02, 1130-2000
