Happy Monday after Daylight Savings Time! Did you guys have any wacky mishaps? I woke up on Sunday and my phone had died and the clock on the wall wasn’t changed yet so I thought it was 11:00 a.m. but it was really noon. A pretty boring mishap!
Apparently some people had a harder time of it. My favorite ridiculous response to changing the clocks is tied between “thought about the unthinkable” and “stepped on a cat,” but I’m leaning towards the unthinkable.
If you aren’t too thrown off by the change and are feeling up to getting out this week, there’s plenty to do! Here’s what’s coming up.
Monday: The Night Train lineup at Littlefield tonight is almost too good: Jermaine Fowler, Jessi Klein, Max Silvestri, Yannis Pappas, Erik Bergstrom, and RG Daniels, with Wyatt Cenac at the helm? Stop it. It’s one of the most consistently funny shows going on right now, so get at it.
622 Degraw Street between 3rd & 4th Avenues, 8:00 p.m. (7:30 doors), $8 tickets available here.
Tuesday: It’s Secret Science Club time! Neuroscientist André Fenton stops by the Bell House and answers such [terrifying] questions as: how are memories stored and retrieved? Why aren’t our minds constantly overrun with them? If we can pinpoint how memories are stored, can we wipe out the bad ones? Are we all on our way to being Eternal Sunshine’d? Stay for themed cocktails, music, and a thought-provoking Q & A. Look at us, we’re learning.
149 7th Street between 2nd & 3rd Avenues, 8:00 p.m. (7:30 doors), free.
Wednesday: The Rock Shop hosts Trivia Tryst, a.k.a. “the East Coast’s premier live trivia quiz game.” It’s free, and teams of up to 6 people can win $50 in food and drinks during the game. Gather the crew!
249 4th Avenue at Carroll Street, 8:30 p.m., free.
