Sick of art fairs? No? Good. This weekend is your last chance to peruse Basel, be seen at Scope, and be baffled at Context before they all pack up and leave for the season.

We've got plenty of opportunities for you to live out your Warhol Factory fantasy. If that's not your thing -- if you hate art, celebrities, and traffic -- we have a few things for you, too.
