What You're Doing This Weekend in Mexico City

Books, books, and bikes

THURSDAY

According to Ernest Hemingway there is no friend as loyal as a book — they will never leave your side (unless you’re amazingly forgetful or into the dangerous habit of loaning) and will always offer sound advice. If you feel like making a couple (ok, maybe a lot) of new friends for life, head to the Gran Remate de Libros del Auditorio Nacional. The sale brings together over 100 editorial houses that will offer books with 50-70 percent off their usual prices. Thank your lucky stars for inventory clearing and remember the sale ends on Tuesday April 18 and is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

FRIDAY

More books more fun! Museo Jumex will be hosting the third edition of Index Art Book Fair, an event devoted to the promotion of art publications. Exhibitions, public reading spaces and performances will pepper this event featuring an exciting group of independent editorials and international bookstores. Tickets start at 35 pesos and the event runs all weekend.

SATURDAY

If there is one machine that can help slow down global warming while improving a city’s mobility that is the bicycle. The sustainable and healthy alternative to fossil-fueled transportation marks its 200 anniversary this year and celebrates it with the sixth edition of the World Bicycle Forum (FMB6). This event will feature workshops, rides, film screenings and exhibitions in several venues. Check out the full schedule on their Facebook page and join in on this important cultural movement.

Imagine how ridiculous it would be if people discriminated against accountants the same they do against sex workers. If people said things like “Oh my God, I can’t believe they keep other people’s books!” or  “I’m sure they had a rough childhood and that’s why they have to file tax statements.” This different perspective on sex work, is the central theme of Una investigación pornográfica, a brilliant play performed by Alba Alonso and Vincenç Mas at Foro Shakespeare. Entrance is 330 pesos and the play begins at 8 p.m.

SUNDAY

The best thing about long weekends in the city is how easy it is to move around the city. Make the most out of this holiday improvement and head all the way to La Cineteca where the spring edition of the Muestra Internacional de Cine will be showing. Tickets are 50 pesos and the festival ends on April 24.
