Carroll Gardens Food and Drink, Talks


Hammerstein Ballroom : 7:00 p.m. November 4

In Japanese, the word for “heavy” rhymes with the word for “baby,” making Babymetal an especially appropriate moniker for this band of petite 15-year-olds in black tutus and pigtails. Like they were born and reared in a Hot Topic store or backstage at a My Chemical... More >>

XIV : 8:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 2

Noho Dance

Indian Ink

Roundabout Underground : 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 30

Ever since 1993’s math-laced, century-spanning Arcadia, we’ve loved it when Tom Stoppard shakes up our boring old temporal sensibilities, finding subtle ways to connect characters despite their being separated by wide berths of time and space. In 1995 he did it again with Indian... More >>

Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire

The Metropolitan Museum of Art : 10:00 a.m. daily until February 1

Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca

Joyce Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily until November 9

Fortress of Solitude

Public Theater : 8:00 p.m. daily until November 8

Music factors prominently into Jonathan Lethem's Fortress of Solitude, in which the central, superhero-obesessed best buds-in-the-face-of-rampant-gentrification Dylan and Mingus jam to The Sugarhill Gang, Lou Reed, N.W.A., and Run DMC. So it's no wonder that this, of all Lethem's locally-set... More >>

Greenwich Village Theater

Jim Caruso & Billy Stritch

Bemelmans Bar : 9:00 p.m. every Sun.

Two of the town’s most sophisticated goofballs sing, play and generally throw a party not exactly like the one the pair of them toss at Birdland on Monday nights but just as much fun. They’ve got something of that old Bob Hope-Bing Crosby chemistry going for them, which ain’t... More >>

Garden of Unearthly Delights

Japan Society : 11:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 11

Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4

Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until February 15

It’s the same argument every Fashion Week, every runway show: “Sure, it’s beautiful. But who would actually wear that?” Wearing high fashion is about as much the point as hanging the Mona Lisa in your rec room or hoisting a Rodin into your five-story walk-up. Such is the... More >>

Robert Gober: The Heart is Not a Metaphor

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 18

Sometimes a sink is just a sink. And sometimes — in the craftsmanship of Robert Gober, at least — it is memories remade and recombined. “I can remember,” Gober once wrote, “a recurring dream of a roomful of sinks, the fact that a friend was dying of AIDS.”... More >>

Some of us have quite enough trouble 
simply walking in six-inch stilettos. But to sing and dance and act in them? Really, someone should hand out honorary Tonys to the Kinky Boots cast just for trying. This new tuner draws its inspiration from a
