Two Bloomsday celebrations for Sidewalks of New York

It will be possible this weekend to catch not just one street event dedicated to Bloomsday, but two — one on Saturday and the other on Sunday.

Ulysses’ bar on Stone Street will mark the 21st annual celebration of the novel of the same name. The “all-day fun starts at 11 a.m.” according to ulyssesnyc.com, but turning up at 1 p.m. should be time enough to enjoy emcee Colum McCann and star performer Aedin Moloney.
