Fri 6/3
Coney Island at the McNay


While its sideshow banners, seascapes and carousel critters already offer a virtual trip to the legendary Brooklyn landmark, the traveling exhibition “Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861-2008” is sure to spring to life in living color for Coney Island at the McNay. Benefiting the museum’s education, exhibition and conservation efforts, the spring fling treats guests to Coney Island-inspired cocktails and cuisine and tempts them with top-notch items up for grabs in a silent auction. Dressed in their “boardwalk best,” attendees can also roam the grounds to find big-top feats ranging from aerial and contortion acts to fire spinners and stilt walkers. $100, 7pm-midnight Fri, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org. – Bryan Rindfuss
