     4/2: Naked Girls Reading, the High Line Reopens…
    Naked Girls Reading
    Naked Girls Reading does Tween Lit at Madame X.

    BETWEEN THE LINES: This month marks the one-year anniversary of Naked Girls Reading, the Chicago-born celebration of literature and clotheslessness that’s already spread to more than 10 cities across the world. So come along to Madame X and hoist a cocktail as local burlesque beauties like Nasty Canasta, Delirium Tremens remind you just how much you enjoy books. (Yes, definitely books.) Tonight’s theme is Tween Lit; expect Judy Blume to be on the menu. 8PM. 

    SUPERSIZE ME: If you’re like us, sometimes we’ll be watching Tom Hanks in US Army camo or a space suit or a weird mullet, running through the Louvre, and you’ll go, why does everyone love Tom Hanks again? And then you re-watch Penny Marshall’s “Big” (1988), and you remember exactly why. (If only for the party buffet scene.) The man-kid fantasy is at the Sunshine tonight and tomorrow, 12AM. 

    ELEVATED: It might as well be spring, because starting today, the High Line’s seasonal hours return—meaning you can watch the sun go down and meander, picnic or what have you until 10PM nightly throughout the summer and well into fall. (And in the morning, it opens at 7.)
