March 31

Going Rouge

Heat up the ice tonight at a Moulin Rouge–themed skating dance party at Prospect Park’s LeFrank Center! At this Lola Star Ice Disco, pro skaters will can-can across the ice while corset-clad hula hoopers shake it in the center rink, and anyone 21 or older can strap on some skates and groove to some retro disco tunes.

7–10 pm at LeFrak Center at Lakeside [171 East Dr. at Ocean Avenue in Prospect Park, (718) 462–0010], $20.


April 1

April rules!

No joke — the Target First Saturday party means free admission to the Brooklyn Museum tonight, plus lots of special events. Catch a performance from roots musician Martha Redbone (pictured) at 5 pm, tour the exhibits, and boogie down at a dance workshop and after-party in the atrium.

5 pm at Brooklyn Museum [200 Eastern Pkwy. at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights, (718) 638–5000], Free.


April 4

Gimme Five

Eat your way down Fifth Avenue while staying in one room! The “Taste of Fifth” party tonight will offer samples from almost 50 eateries along Park Slope’s Restaurant Row, including newcomers Gristmill, Mis Gril, and Wild, along with beloved favorites like Buttermilk Bakeshop (pictured), Sidecar, and Freddy’s.

6:30–9:30 pm at Grand Prospect Hall (263 Prospect Ave between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope, $65 ($60 in advance).


April 5

Out of the box

The musician behind the annual “Unsilent Night” music event performed on boomboxes presents an evening of inventive new work in “Not OK: the Music of Phil Kline.” Highlights of the night include a collaboration with filmmaker Jim Jarmusch featuring guitar feedback, drones, Edison film projections and 24 boomboxes, and excerpts from Kline’s upcoming song cycle about Joan Crawford.

8 pm at Roulette [509 Atlantic Ave. at Third Avenue in Boerum Hill, (917) 267–0363,]. $25 ($20 in advance).


April 6

‘Paper’ boy

Our final story: local boy done good! Former Brooklyn Paper reporter Alex MacGillis will discuss the work that won him the coveted Polk Award for journalism tonight — and the lessons he learned in our newsroom — in the panel discussion “Covering the Trump Presidency,” with fellow winners David Fahrenthold and Marina Walker Guevara.

6:30 pm at Kumble Theater at Long Island University [DeKalb and Flatbush avenues in Downtown, (718) 488–1624,]. Free.
