Roz Chast
One of our favorite cartoonists, the New Yorker's Roz Chast, gets an award from the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art at its festival this weekend. Meet cartoonists, buy books and artwork, and listen to panel discussions. It takes place at the Puck Building, 295 Lafayette [Houston] from 11-6 both days. Tickets are $7 for one day, $12 for both.

Broadway: The Golden Age
This winning documentary by Rick McKay captures the esprit de corps of the Broadway community, as veterans look back on a time when the theatre world didn't feel like an annually shrinking pie. Dozens of legends talk, and what talk!

Car Show
Empire Autorama is part of the country's largest gay and lesbian car club. Tomorrow, they're sponsoring a car show with 40 American classics, modern sports, and specialists cars (part of the Pride weekend festivities). Look for the beauties (automotive and owners) at Dag Hammerskjold Plaza near 47th [1st/2nd].

Med Cafe
In the old Global 33 space, Med Cafe, 99 2nd [5th/6th] 212.477.8427. Look for Tuscan stew, Burgundy-braised lamb shank, and wild mushroom risotto. Entrees average $17.

Nick Drake
Nick Drake, who was able to transform melancholy into art, has, in the decades since his death, only grown in popularity for his few recorded albums. Good news for devotees: Made to Love Magic has just been released, a collection of previously unreleased material and remixes. One song, Tow the Line, was only discovered by chance — at the end of a tape reel — and was probably the last song Drake ever recorded. Available at Other Music, 15 E. 4th [Bway/Laf] 212.477.8150, and elsewhere.
