Ever had some really amazing dim sum and been tempted to try to recreate it at home? Me too, but then I remember that my Chinese food-making experience is limited to nuking potstickers from Trader Joe’s. Luckily, the Farm on Adderley aims to eliminate some of the intimidation factor with its Chinatown Shop & Cook event this Sunday. Meet at 1pm in Sunset Park, where chef Tom Kearney will guide you through a few Asian markets, pointing out key ingredients and explaining how to incorporate them into your own kitchen. Later that evening, the group will reconvene at the restaurant to enjoy a special dinner inspired by the shopping trip, complete with recipe cards that you can take with you and use at home. The total cost of the shopping excursion and dinner is $60 per person, excluding drinks, and you can reserve a spot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. –K.H.

There are 25,000 objects in the Brooklyn Museum decorative arts collection, and each one has a story. We’ll highlight one particularly interesting piece each month, starting with one of the the collection’s most controversial acquisitions. By design, decorative art objects are intended to be one of two things: pretty or purposeful. “It’s unusual that they have […]
The Runaways didn’t have of a long career, but they were certainly ahead of their time. An explosive outfit both on and offstage, they were one of the first all-female hard rock bands to clear a path for future women rockstars. Though the Runaways had broken up by the early ’80s, former members like Joan […]
