Memory lane

Nightlife: The stars were all visible “Under African Skies” on April 9, when the Brooklyn Academy of Music hosted a gala to honor Paul Simon, who performed a concert by the same name — part of a month-long series entitled “Love in Hard Times.” Comments (1).

‘Hotel’ check in

Nightlife: With its unconventional entrance — an unmarked door on a side street — and frosted front windows, you could easily pass by Hotel Delmano, the latest impossibly hip new bar to grace Williamsburg. Comment.

‘Walworth’ your time

Theater: When GO Brooklyn reached playwright Enda Walsh, he was at home in London and had just finished watching an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The 41-year-old Irishman is the author of “The Walworth Farce,” which will make its U.S. debut at St. Ann’s Warehouse in DUMBO on April 15, but despite being a serious playwright, he was still floored by Larry David’s antics. “It’s so good,” he said. “That’s perfect farce.” Comment.

Catching the ‘Flea’

Vox Pop: Hundreds of shoppers flocked to the April 6 grand opening of the Brooklyn Flea — a 200-vendor gathering in the yard at the Bishop Loughlin HS on Lafayette Avenue. Here’s what they told GO Brooklyn they found. Comment.

Say ‘spahhh’

Spa: Those suffering from dull complexions, aching muscles and tattered toenails should stop and make and appointment — now! It’s Spa Week again, and 11 Brooklyn pampering emporiums are offering several services for the rock bottom price of 50 bucks, from April 14 through April 20. Comment.

Eye ‘Candy’

TV: For Jennifer Dzuira, stand-up comedy is no joke. After three years of running “Monday Night Stand-Up,” a live comedy show at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg, she’s reaching even more neighborhoods through television. Now, every Tuesday at midnight the show airs on BCAT. Comment.

Doll house

Art: In a small Prospect Heights community center, 31 artists have come together to create a new neighborhood — populated entirely by handmade dolls. Comment.
