MUGWeekend

Ambient
Dream rock? Ambient pop? Whatever. Jimmy LaValle (whose old band Tristeza had plenty of fans) is recording now under The Album Leaf and whatever this mostly instrumental music is, it's all good. (iTunes samples here). The Album Leaf is at NorthSix, NorthSix, 66 N. 6th, Williamsburg, 718.599.5103, tomorrow night (Friday) at 9pm (doors at 8pm), $10.

Architecture
See what projects NYC architects are cooking up in the exhibition "New York Now" at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia [Bleecker] 212.358.6111. The opening is Friday night, 6:30-8:30pm, free, more info here.

Classical
Dvorak and Sibelius are on the program for tomorrow night's concert by the New Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra and will feature violinist Jinyeong Jessica Lee. It's $12 at the Trinity School, 101 W. 91st [Col/Amst] at 8pm.

Kids
Despite calls in the British Parliament for the original Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends to be returned to England, they live in the Central Children's Donnell Library, 20 W. 53rd [5th/6th] 212.621.0618, on permanent display. More on Pooh here.

Food
You know how it feels when you get out into the French countryside and you stop in at a place you just happened on, and it turns out to be a memorably lovely and restorative lunch? See if Fleur de Sel, 5 E. 20th [B way/5th] 212.460.9100, doesn't work that way for you (dinner's enormously appealing, too). Lunch is served Monday through Saturday, and it's a serious bargain at $25 for three courses.

Shopping
Tupli, 780 Mad [66th/67th] 212.472.2576, makes custom shoes and boots (using, if you want: diamonds, beads, leather, suede, satin, color swatches…). This Saturday, 11am-6pm, it's 50% off day. Shoes that were $600 are now $300 — which for a custom job is a steal.
Hey, our guy won!
Congratulations to photoblogger and MUG contributor Joe Holmes for winning two 2005 Photobloggies, one for Best Photojournalism and one for Best New Photoblog for 2004. We couldn't be less surprised or more pleased.
