Erin go march
Sunday, March 21: The pipes, the pipes are calling — so it’s time for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Look for Borough President Markowitz handing out his green bagels in front of the Pavilion Cinema at around 9 am, as curly-headed Irish step dancers (are those wigs?) and bagpipe bands gather in advance of the noon step-off. A pre-parade Mass will be held at the Holy Name Church in Windsor Terrace.
Noon. St. Patrick’s Day Parade starts at Prospect Park West and 14th Street in Park Slope.
He wrote the songs
Monday, March 22: He’s a man who’s done it all in the rock and roll world — and he somehow managed to write it all down through the haze! Famed classic rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn will present his 20 years of interviewing the best (and the worst) rock legends. For the aspiring journalist, he’ll be giving career advice too — if you can hear him over the Aerosmith.
12:20 pm. Rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn at St. Francis College [180 Remsen St. between Court and Clinton streets in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 489-5200. Free.
Thursday, March 25: It’s not often you get the chance to hear a meshing of prayerful Hasidic music and jazz with one hot man in one hot spot — just in time for Passover! But Andy Statman, the virtuoso clarinetist and mandolin master, is continuing to take the borough by storm. He’ll bring in da funk — Jerusalem style — with his set at Barbes.
10 pm. Andy Statman at Barbes [376 Ninth St. at Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 965-9177]. $10. For info, visit www.barbesbrooklyn.com.
Hot time tonight
Saturday, March 27: Look, you’ve got some barbeque sauce on your face. But don’t wash it off — instead, head to Grillin’ on the Bay, the borough’s only sponsored barbeque and chili competition. All the top chefs and foodies will be there preparing ribs and so many varieties of chili that even a Texan would forget the Alamo. You get to reap the saucy benefits.
All day. “Grillin’ on the Bay” at St. Mark School (2606 E. 19th St. between Avenue Z and Jerome Avenue in Sheepshead Bay). For info, visit www.grillinonthebay.blogspot.com.
