I'm a culture dork. Unabashed, unashamed. Maybe it's my decidedly common roots -- American born Italian-Polish girl -- that make me crave knowledge about other cultures.
New York is the city to be for those who need a melting pot of people, and there never seems to be a shortage of festivals and events to celebrate the diversity of this great city.
Today marks the kick off of Celebrate México Now 2010, which highlights talented Mexican artists in dance, film, literature, and music. Through September 30, the annual festival will host a series of free events -- film screenings, talks, art openings, etc. -- around the city.
In conjunction with the festivities, several tasty Mexican restaurants like Mercadito and Crema are offering prix-fixe meals as part of New York Authentic Mexican Restaurant Week.
Check out the event website for the full schedule.
