Live latin music at Industry City: Friday nights are best spent with wine and live tunes — and thankfully, Industry City has been keeping that going all winter long thanks to its spacious outdoor seating. Head to Sahadi’s at Courtyard 3/4 for a free, live latin performance from New York City-based Cuban son and salsa band Cuarteto Guataca from 6 to 9 pm.

Virtual game night: They’re bringing back Friday nights! Play online games, answer trivia and laugh ’til it hurts — all while connecting with friends near and far. Let’s Roam’s Virtual Game Night makes it easy for you to have an epic game night any night — and for the party animals, it’s BYOB. Free. 7-10 pm. Tickets here.

Saturday, March 6

Shop, with love: Head to Industry City this weekend to check out the All Love Market. The All Love Market is a curated, physically-distant, pop-up shopping experience that highlights 25 emerging Black makers and manufacturers in New York City. Happening from noon to 6 pm at Five Two A, the market is free to enter but face masks are required.

A wintry weekend walk at Green-Wood: It may be cold outside, but you don’t have to let that stop you from discovering Green-Wood Cemetery. On this leisurely 90-minute “Winter Wanders” walking tour, you’ll take in spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline from Battle Hill, visit Fannie the dog, the beloved companion of Elias Howe’s family and hear the tragic tale of Victorian debutante Charlotte Canda. Along the way you’ll explore Green-Wood’s historic landscape and learn about the seemingly cryptic iconography found throughout the cemetery. $25/$20 for members. Comfortable footwear suggested. 1-2:30 pm.

Rooftop comedy: Tell You What — you’re not going to want to miss this stand up comedy show produced by Mike Bramante and Maximilian Spinelli and hosted on the roof of The Tiny Cupboard (1717 Broadway, Brooklyn). Seating is extremely limited in order to ensure social distancing and advance purchase is highly recommended. Masks are required for the duration of the show and there will temperature checks at the door. Pay what you want, show starts at 9:30 pm. Register here.
