The Weekender

Your weekend Agenda

This weekend, you're holding serve.

Friday
Rugby World Cup 2007
FRIDAY RUGBY

Rugby World Cup 2007

That chill in the air means it's time for championship rugby. You can grab a front-row seat for the padless fury on three massive screens at the Sunburnt Cow, complete with a smoker's lounge, in case scrums bring out the stogie lover in you.

Saturday
New York TV Festival
SATURDAY PILOTS

New York TV Festival

Your pilot idea didn't work out—31 Rock—but that doesn't mean you should hold it against the ones that did. Check out the New York TV Festival, an unveiling of the shows your assistant will be glued to this fall.

Sunday
Kohei Yoshiyuki Exhibit
SUNDAY PHOTOGRAPHY
