Spring is in the air! But it really here? We’re two weeks away from Daylight Savings, when longer days will again return to New York City. Until then, enjoy the lineup of great events this week:


Tuesday, February 28


Fat Tuesday


Happy Mardi Gras! Indulge to your heart’s content in the best that New York City has to offer—including, of course, the traditional king cake. Regardless of whether or not you’ll spend the rest of the week fasting, Mardi Gras is always a good time!

Karaoke Against Humanity


Wednesday, March 1, 9 p.m.


Lot 45 Buckwick, 411 Troutman Street, Brooklyn


It’s a karaoke game for horrible people. If you’ve played Cards Against Humanity, you can play this version: The host picks a card from the deck, and the player has to respond with a song title, and then sing the song. A little levity for a Wednesday.
