1. Discuss design. Did you know that NYC's subway map is the "most controversial transit map of the century," according to the New York Tranist Museum? Find out why at , a panel discussion at the museum, at the corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street. 6 p.m. Free. (Btw, the museum in a former subway station, so look for the subway entrance.)
2. Hit the bars. For a less serious evening, there's a weath of activities at our area bars. At Branded Saloon there's Aviva Jaye at 7 followed by Bingo with Tammy Wynette and the country music Tribute w/ Gerard & Viva both at 8. There's also The John Baab Trio + The DeLorean Sisters + Doll Parts @ The Way Station, Trivia Tuesday at Bar Sepia, Tuesday Nite Comedy @ Eve's and Karaoke @ Janelles.
3. Think green. Big!Compost is looking for volunteers to help out with a variety of events across the city, including the "Grow Our Grass Roots" conference on March 16 at Borough Hall. Check out their list of events here.
4. Get hitched. DNAinfo has an informative piece on some top-notch Brooklyn locales for couples looking for places to tie the knot, including suggestions for the price-conscious. For instance, did you know that while Prospect Park's Audubon Center is quite costly, the Picnic House is "pretty darn affordable"? (Prospect Heights Patch, btw, got married at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and can vouch that it's hands-down the best spot for a Brooklyn wedding.)
5. Move your car. Alternate side parking is in effect today.
