Those of us who, in the new year, have resolved to expand our horizons, discover new things, and just in general be smarter, better people, will be excited to learn about BeaconPass, a super streamlined and user-friendly site that finds, curates and categorizes arts events in New York City. Users can search for events by date, category, price and location, or browse the listings free-form to find an immediate cure for the winter doldrums or a lackluster Saturday. BeaconPass guarantees they feature “only venues with strong arts-focused missions and goals…that stand out from the crowd; the ones that present inspiring performances in intimate spaces night after night,” and aim for variety and quality above all else. Great for taking the guesswork out of arts-ing around town. Follow BeaconPass on Twitter (@BeaconPassNYC) for up-to-the-tweet event news, and visit them at www.beaconpass.com for complete listings.
