Summer is drawing to a close, so mark its passing with Andrea McGinty’s Life’s a Beach!!! at Beverly’s tomorrow night. And although the Rockaways won’t be in season for much longer, the rest of Queens is heating up. Witness the comedienne Adrienne Truscott taking off her pants to take on rape culture in Long Island City on Wednesday night. Thursday, thingNY’s apocalyptic opera opens at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, along with the exhibition Surface Matters, though we recommend saving the performance for Sunday, when there’s less stuff happening. The borough’s New York Hall of Science is also hosting the World Maker Faire (which actually has programming all week). It seems like there’s virtually no reason to ever leave Queens. It does suggest, though, that art loving New Yorkers may soon need to invest in a car to get to all these places. For anyone in the market, we hear the 2010 Jeff Koons BMW art car doesn’t suck.

Let's get one thing straight: The art shown at Pulse is not our cup of tea.

Alright, who hasn’t placed a bid at BAM’s Benefit Auction yet? Time to move! The auction closes tomorrow at 6 pm.  The Ryan Johnson mixed media work above needs a home. A cocktail reception will be held tomorrow from 3-6 for those wanting to hob nob a little before the auction closes. I hope to see at least a few readers there as the BAM benefit events are usually a blast. Speaking of which, this time I intend to remain sober. The last BAM auction reception I attended resulted in a little *too much* fun and a lost weekend.

In anticipation of tomorrow’s closing I’ve added few more items to my original list readers might enjoy:
