During these unprecedented times, 42nd Street Moon is keeping its artists and audiences connected through interviews, previews, and other tidbits of theatrical joy. This Friday at 8pm, your favorite Moon singers (and maybe even some unexpected guests) will join you for a snippet of conversation and some music for "Full Moon Fridays." On Sunday, test your musical theatre knowledge with live trivia in "Quiz me, Kate: Musical Theatre Trivia." Play for cash prizes! The quizzing begins at 8pm.

"Turbo Drive"

If you're a fan of the music from "Stranger Things," "Kung Fury," "Drive," "Turbo Kid," or neo-80s nostalgia, then you'll love DNA Lounge's, "Turbo Drive," the biggest and longest running synthwave party in the world. To keep you sane during the lockdown, DNA Lounge is doing webcast-only DJ sets. Fire up the lasers and fog machine and dance along from the safety of your own home. The fun runs from 8pm-midnight.

Giants and A's Opening Series

Baseball is finally here, and both the Giants and the A's have big opening series against their Los Angeles archrivals. On Friday night, the Giants play their second game of the series against the Dodgers at 6:40pm. For the A's, catch Opening Day at 7:08pm as they take on the Angels. Both series continue throughout the weekend.

Virtual Bouquets to Art

Join the de Young Museum Friday-Sunday as museum curators, conservators, and featured floral designers bring your favorite floral content to the comfort of your own home. Programs include featured talks, floral-themed games, interactive demos, and more. See the de Young's website for a full list of the weekend's offerings that will have you blooming in place.
