The Weekend Guide

Do you see the light?!

Francis and the Lights
Cannot get enough of his funky, jerky, syncopated, retro-futuristic Prince-like stylings.

When: Fri., 8 p.m.

Savoy Cassoulet Fest
Try seven varieties of the simmering French stew made by chefs from Cookshop, Marlow & Sons, Back Forty, and Mas.

When: Sat., 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Where: 70 Prince St., at Crosby St. (212-219-8570). They’re holding twenty seats for subscribers, so mention DailyCandy when reserving.
