Time to spring forward this weekend with some on your own March madness. Speakeasy parties, dancing in a museum, dessert goals and experiencing spring plants blossoming are on the horizon.
The American Museum of Natural History hosts a different DJ every month in its Rose Center for Earth and Space. This Friday they will be featuring Classixx, Lloydski, and Alex Behnke as the opener. Tickets are $25 to $30 the day of the event, and beer and wine are served at the cash bar. Dancing one step beyond around earth and space never felt so good.
If you don’t have #dessertgoals, then you might as well have no goals. The 2nd annual Dessert Goals Fest is taking place this Saturday and Sunday in Williamsburg. The only tickets left are for the workshops and general admission at $50, which could be worth it for access to 20 of the best dessert vendors, free candy shop, a savory salt bar, access to a rooftop lounge, and an Instagram garden decorated for dessert photography. Every photo taken should clearly have #omgdessertgoals.

The Museum of Interesting Things will take over the Lofts at Prince in Soho for a special Suffragette-themed party for the Museum this Sunday. It will feature a movie fest and party, where you obviously will need to dress like it’s 1925. There will be drinks (cash bar), free food and snacks, music and beautiful visuals, all for a ticket price of $10 to support the museum. Interesting indeed.

New Restaurant Openings/Art to Check Out:
Japanese chain Yo! Sushi just arrived in Flatiron, bringing with it fun, conveyor belt style eats that are colorful as they are delicious.
Recently opened in Hell’s Kitchen, this exclusively pescetarian restaurant will make fish lovers unite in joyful noise and meat haters do the same.
The Museum of Arts and Design is featuring the exhibit “Counter-Couture: Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture” to celebrate the handmade fashion and style of the 1960s and 1970s. Often referred to as the hippie movement, the Counterculture swept away the conformism of the previous decade and professed an alternative lifestyle whose effects still resonate today.
The Brooklyn Museum and its yearlong feminist movement is now displaying the paintings, photography and clothing by the talented artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The exhibit takes a new look at how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona — including her clothing and the way she posed for the camera. Tickets are $6-$20.
#GeorgiaOKeeffe often painted abstract forms in shades of black and white, the same restricted palette she used in her dress. Her artwork’s simple lines, free flowing forms, and minimal ornamentation seamed effortlessly to her personal style. ⇨ Her muted aesthetic is depicted in this portrait by Alfred Stieglitz, which captures O’Keeffe in a similar dress that mirrors her painting’s simplicity. ⇨ These clean lines and soft shapes are also echoed in this dress she made and wore in the 1920’s. #okeeffemodern
