“The Dinner Party” by Judy Chicago

With winter days gone by, March ushers in spring—Mother Nature’s rebirth. It’s time to get outside, see what’s new, explore everything the Island has to offer and have yourself THE BEST WEEK!

Monday

Brooklyn has long stated its status as the coolest place on the planet and this month it backs it up with two must-see Brooklyn Museum exhibits. David Bowie is and Roots of “The Dinner Party” celebrates the world’s rebels, whether they be nonconforming starmen or groundbreaking women.

Tuesday

Oligarchy may feel a little too close to home these days, but The Death of Stalin pokes fun at its lunacy with aplomb. For a nightcap, head to Cork & Kerry’s new Farmingdale location. Owner Doug Bickel gives us the lowdown on the latest outpost and what it means for the cocktail menu.

Wednesday

Catch a matinee performance of one of Broadway’s new slate of plays. Dare we suggest Denzel in The Iceman Cometh? On the way home, catch dinner at Olmsted in Brooklyn where chef Greg Baxtrom eschews the fussiness of fine-dining but delivers on the taste.

Thursday

Do you need a T-Rex skeleton? That’s akin to asking if you need a safari vacation. We have solutions for both. Into Africa will help you plan your excursion to Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve. And the dinosaur? It’s real, incredible and waiting for you.

Friday 

Mardi Gras may have passed, but the masquerade season is storming. Don a mask and come to Pulse’s Night of Mischief at Coe Hall for an evening full of surprises. The Gold Coast mansion will host our Gatsby-style party this year. We could tell you more, but where’s the fun in that?

Saturday

Get into the Celtic spirit at Rockville Centre’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. To keep the luck of the Irish on your side, dial into lipulse.com to find the best shepherd’s pie, coldest Guinness, highest steppers and checkout our Emerald Isle to avoid raising ire by committing St. Patrick’s faux-pas. Notice we didn’t say “Paddy”?

Sunday

A day out East is never a day wasted. Example: A stop at Macari Vineyards rewards sippers with a taste of this year’s Early Wine, a springtime delight. If it’s something stronger you desire, Fellowship of the Still is a primer on all things East End spirits, including Sag Harbor Rum and a pink gin from Wölffer Estate.
