Roundup: Saving Face

Have you signed up for the twice-weekly newsletter? It’s the easiest way to keep up with Tribeca Citizen. Look for the gray box to the right.

••• Tribeca Retail Club has been busy on Facebook. First, there was this: “Purchase a ticket to the Tribeca Retail Club today, and enter in the promotional code GGA, you’ll pay $10 for a ticket instead of $15 and we’ll donate the $5 you save to one of the Girly Girl Army’s Blog fave animal rights organization Mercy for Animals.” (No clue if it’s still valid.) And then this: “Subscribe
to the Tribeca Retail Club News Letter and win a $100 gift certificate
to OMG Jeans! Subscribe here!” Though the way it’s written it sounds like you automatically get the $100 g/c, when I’m hunching that it’s more that you have a chance to win….
••• Speaking of Facebook: Tribeca Performing Arts Center released this discount on its Facebook page: “Special offer for Facebook Fans: $5 off a ticket to see Guy Davis on Friday or Saturday at 8 p.m. Call 212-220-1460 or visit the box office and mention code FACEGUY10 to redeem your discount!”

••• Downtown Express has a lot to say about greater Tribeca: Independence Plaza, the Hudson Square garbage garage, and the Tribeca mom who does tarot readings at Whole Foods’ café.
••• Terror trials still possibly coming here? (Broadsheet Daily)
••• “The Tribeca Film Institute will launch two new programs in New York City and Brooklyn public schools to support multimedia and film education. The Camera-to-Classroom fund will support partnerships between cultural organizations and New York City public school to implement the curriculum outlined in the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts: The Moving Image. The organizations will plan a workshop for students to produce film, television, or animation projects. The Tribeca Teaches: Film in Motion program, already implemented in a middle school in the Bronx, will expand to two schools in Brooklyn. A collection of the films produced in this after-school program will be screened at the 2010 Tribeca Film Fest.” (Variety)
