Making Brooklyn Bloom
March 14, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden, 150 Eastern Parkway
It’s finally beginning to feel like spring, and that’s especially good news for city gardeners whose green thumbs are just itching to start planting. Cue the 34th annual Making Brooklyn Bloom, which brings New Yorkers out of the garden for panels, networking, exhibits, activities and even films on urban farming.
March 14, 8 p.m.
Kings Theatre , 1027 Flatbush Ave., Brooklyn
Kings Theatre just reopened in February, but the lineup looks like one you’d see at any established venue. For its first major show since Diana Ross kicked things off, Sarah McLachlan brings her classics along with new songs from her seventh album, “Shine On.” The appearance will be the first on her 31-city tour, which officially starts in June. It’s followed by Bjork (March 18 and 22), Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (March 21) and others at the movie theater-turned-concert venue.

‘Remote New York’
March 14-April 5
You can’t get more immersive than this: NYU Skirball’s “Remote New York” is a theatrical experience that takes place out in the streets. Groups of about 50 show up to a secret location and don headsets that give instructions on what to do. The details are scarce, which is part of the fun; the purpose is to change the way we interact with the city.
