Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Brooklyn, NY 

8pm-12am | FREE | 21+ (25+ recommended)

“Enjoy inventive craft cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude, no cover. Weekend bars are awful; come hide out here. We'll make you something delicious. Plus, the Experiment: craft cocktail pop-up meets Iron Chef. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you and a friend get a complimentary round (up to three friends, if it's a full size bottle of something excellent!). No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.” – Gemini & Scorpio

You see all of the red carpet pictures for the Met Gala each year, marking the opening of a new exhibit. Experience this year’s, “Camp” for yourself.

“Through more than 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present, The Costume Institute's spring 2019 exhibition explores the origins of camp's exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on 'Camp'" provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.” – The Met

New World Stages, Stage Three, 340 W. 50th Street, NY, NY 10019



Rock of Ages is celebrating its 10-year anniversary and is back off Broadway! If you didn’t get to see this show during its first run, you have to see it now! It was one of my personal favorites, and one of only a few shows that I have seen multiple times, and will definitely be seeing again. Rock of Ages is like experiencing a live rock concert – high energy, lots of fun, and full of excitement and awesome 80s music that you’ll be singing the entire rest of the night! “This five-time Tony Award-nominated musical tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. But when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day – and the music.” – Rock of Ages
