Strange Even by Masquerade Standards
THE BALL

Strange Even by Masquerade Standards

Pulp-horror-themed East Village watering hole Lovecraft is doing what will probably be your favorite steampunk masquerade ball of March. There’ll be mind reading, sword-swallowing and fire walking. Yeah, we’re sticking with this being your favorite steampunk masquerade ball of March.

Mar 6, 7pm, $10, Lovecraft, 50 Ave B (between 3rd and 4th)

Sunday
Björk Is All Over MoMA
THE BJÖRK

Björk Is All Over MoMA

At MoMA’s newest exhibition, opening Sunday:

—Robots.
—Insane music videos.
—Live performances with a gameleste, a pipe organ, a gravity harp and a Tesla coil.
—A dress that’s also a swan.

Guess who it’s about.

Monday
Notorious B.I.G., the Dinner
THE DINNER

Notorious B.I.G., the Dinner

Dale Talde, of Talde, and Chris Jaeckle, of All’onda, are fans of the Notorious B.I.G. Yet they can’t rap. So they pay tribute to Biggie the only way they know how—by doing oxtail patties, tomato soup and cheesecake based on his lyrics. There’s also bound to be something juicy.

What Else Is New
Bon French Stuff in the East Village
AND NOW...

Bon French Stuff in the East Village

Date alert: we’re getting reports of a devastatingly charming French bistro and cocktail spot in the East Village. There’re eyewitness reports of roasted lamb shoulder and absinthe Aviations.

Opens Mar 9, Pardon My French, 103 Ave B (between 6th and 7th), 212-358-9683
