Things to do for March 12, 2009
Dark and Stormy Happy Hour, Pi and Pie
The weekend is infinite.
If you've got a thing for decimal points (and who doesn't), you'll probably want to join those unusual creatures who celebrate Pi Day, March 14—everyone brings pie for some mathematical music and a dramatic reading of the number. It's even longer than Watchmen.
Every Sunday night, this Polynesian playpen now pulls out the Kung Pao Chicken for a family-style spread that also includes Pupu, veggies and fortune cookies. It'll soak up your mixture of joy and sadness upon hearing the Dow-dependent cost of your Recession Punch.
You already know the Irish bars that'll be sloshing unnaturally green beer at unnaturally early hours. Alternative: an alfresco lunch at Breadbar, where $17 gets you a spread of asparagus salad, brisket sliders, split pea soup, green tea cupcakes and a stout.
When you're going to see a play about a stoned teenager rejecting his parents' ideals, that teenager had better be…Mark Ruffalo. The original cast is back for a staged reading of the off-Broadway hit, actual ages be damned.
