NEXT MEAL: A panel of food notables like Anson Mills’ Glenn Roberts and NYT/Food 52’s Amanda Hesser grapple with the question, what will we be eating in 30 years? Can restaurants survive? Will traditional recipes rule, will fusion be the thing, and will anyone care about molecular gastronomy’s love of flavored foams and things that are both hot and iced at the same time (ooo!)? The Future of Food with Y+30 is at 92YTribeca at 7:30PM.

RIFF: If you’re a fan of Dave Brubeck’s work or John Coltrane’s iconic rendition of the Richard Rodgers classic “My Favorite Things,” but have always found them lacking in, say, modern dance accompaniment, you’re in luck: These – plus music by Kurt Elling and more – get a choreographic reinterpretation by the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company at the Joyce. 7:30PM, more dates.

MISS SMITH:  You could call what Lavay Smith and her Red-Hot Skillet Lickers do retro-swing, except, no, they were around long before “Vegas, baby!” even entered the pop culture lexicon and ushered in the unfortunate zoot-suits-and-cigars-phase we all endured in the mid/late ’90s. They do 1940s and ’50s-era big band jazz that cooks, pure and simple. Catch them at the Jazz Standard tonight and tomorrow, 7:30 and 9:30PM.
