FOOD NETWORKED: A decade ago, food television mostly involved people stirring and sautéing while staring into the camera—things have changed just a little bit. “Top Chef”’s Padma Lakshmi, “The Kitchen Sessions”’ Charlie Trotter, Kathleen Collins, author of “Watching What We Eat: The Evolution of Television Cooking Shows,” and food writer Amanda Hesser discuss the state of the food-TV union at the 92nd Street Y with Food on the Tube: How TV Shapes The Way We Think About Food at 8PM.

SISTER ACT: Greenlight Bookstore’s monthly Blogger/Author Pairings – where a local blogger gets to chinwag with a scribe they love – welcomes Sarah Pekkanen, whose debut novel “The Opposite of Me,” about grown-up sisters reconsidering their relationship, is going to be in every pair of hands at the beach this summer, for a chat with "Stacked" book blog founder Christina Oppold. 7:30PM.

RAZOR’S EDGE: The Tim Burton exhibit wraps at MoMA with a screening of his masterpiece, the 1990 Franken-musing “Edward Scissorhands,” as dark as it is uplifting. Masterfulness abounds from Johnny Depp as the be-scissored boy just trying to fit in (and from Dianne Weist, too). Ho often do you get to see this gem on the big screen? 8PM.
