2. Celebrate the Year of the Snake. Mark the Asian New Year with a Tea Tasting for the Chinese New Year at Chrysanthemum at 1 p.m. or a Chinese New Year Party at Beast at 6 p.m. 

3. Get the kids out of the house. The New York Transit Museum is having a Special Day for Special Kids today for kids with special needs. Games, art projects and musical performances will be offered between 10am and 2pm, with a quiet room available for breaks from the excitement. 

4. Nerd up. Feed your inner geek with the Moving Pictures screening series: Doctor Who: Heartbreakers + Nerdeoke! @ The Way Station beginning at 5 p.m. 

5. Catch a classical concert. Today, at 4:00 p.m., The Brooklyn Philharmonic will give a special performance of Vera Pavlov’s Album for the Young at the Stevan Dweck Center at the Central Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza. In this rendition, Tchaikovsky gets personal as acclaimed poet Vera Pavlova and the Brooklyn Phil Chamber Players take an intimate look at the life of a great Russian artist through original poetry, imagery, and music for strings and piano. The performance will be followed by a post-concert Q&A with Vera Pavlova.
