Eating & Drinking

Night markets have officially become hot commodities in our food-obsessed culture, but the Museum of Chinese in America’s one-night-only, indoor happening dedicated to the Year of the Pig might offer the most quality. Ring in the Lunar New Year with Nom Wah, East Wind Snack Shop, Tea Drunk, Danielle Chang of Lucky Chow, and some traditional lion dancers. Friday, February 1; 6 p.m.; 215 Centre Street (between Howard and Grand Streets), Little Italy

The Mint Theater Company—expert at discovering worthy antique drama that’s a century or more old—presents Elizabeth Baker’s 1913 play, The Price of Thomas Scott, about a shopkeeper unwilling to sell his real estate to a music hall. Will morality or business sense prevail? Through Saturday, March 23; Beckett Theatre, Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street (between Ninth and Tenth Avenues), Midtown

Live Music

Legendary jazz drummer Billy Hart may have first hit his stride in the 1970s, but, even at age 78, he can still kick it (the bass drum, that is) with the best of ’em. You can witness the Grammy-nominated musician if you stop by for his run at Village Vanguard with his newest quartet, featuring Mark Turner, Ben Street, and the Bad Plus’s Ethan Iverson. Friday, February 1–Sunday, February 3; 178 Seventh Avenue South (between Perry and West 11th Streets), West Village
