What’s going on this week in New York:

Sing for Hope

The pianos are back! Beginning June 4, tickle the ivories around New York City with Sing for Hope, which transforms lives by using the power of the the arts to create a better world.

Monday, June 4–June 24

New York City

Harlem Sound

Celebrate the Apollo Theater’s rich legacy and future at the annual Spring Gala. The event will feature performances by Brandy and Salt-n-Papper. Hello ’90s!

Monday, June 4

Apollo Theater, 235 West 125th Street, New York

Butterflies and Moths

Public speaking may give some people butterflies, but not at the Moth. Celebrate the art of storytelling at the annual Moth Ball, this year dubbed the Hatter’s Mad Tea Party. If you’re still on the fence about attending, take it from Molly Ringwald: “I love the Moth parties. I always have the most fun at them. They always have the most interesting people, and I love the fact that they always have a theme, and it’s something I can get excited about.” 

Tuesday, June 5

Capitale, 130 Bowery, New York

A Taste of Summer

Saturday’s weather may have given New Yorkers a taste of summer temperatures, but a more delicious sampling of the season awaits. The annual Taste of Summer boasts delectable food and seasonal cocktails, all benefitting the ultimate place to spend a summer day in the city: Central Park.

Wednesday, June 6

Bethesda Terrace, Central Park, New York

Claw Your Way to the Top

There was a time when lobster was considered prison food. Clearly that’s no longer the case. Sample 24 of the best lobster rolls in the country at the annual Tasting Table Lobster Rumble, all while supporting World Central Kitchen. From Maine to New York to even Cincinnati, which iteration will reign as king of the crustaceans? 

Thursday, June 7

Brooklyn BKX, 72 Noble Street, Brooklyn
