Friday March 8th – MoMA is the home to some of the most innovative art chronicling the past century.

Sunday, March 17th â€“ Where Brooklyn at? At the Barclays Center silly! Feel free to wear some St. Patrick’s Day green ontop of your Nets black jersey as you watch the boys take on the Atlanta Hawks. Great tickets are still available. (Brooklyn Nets)
Music & Entertainment
Friday, March 15th – Movie release day. Quiet night tonight? Check out the films opening this weekend. Prepare to laugh and scream, or scream with laughter at the movies tonight. “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” (PG-13) is an extremely over the top love letter and satire of the Magic industry. Funnyman Steve Carrell rounds out an excellent cast featuring the likes of Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde. Prepare to be amazed! Halle Berry returns to her leading woman status in the thriller, “The Call” (R). Sporting an interesting haricut, Berry stars as a veteran 911 operator who must save the life of a kidnapped young woman played by actress Abigail Breslin.
Friday, March 15th – Before you get sick on all that green beer, how bout a few laughs in Williamsburg? Its the, “Big Terrific 5th Anniversary.” This popular comedy variety show is hosted by former Saturday Night Live star Jenny Slate.
