  • This week, Littlefield hosts a night of Muppet-related trivia.

This week we celebrate our childhoods, celebrate the birthdays of two dance clubs and laugh our a.s.s.-es off. Here are our must-do and must-see events for the week:

Billyburg Bash ($30) – March 14, 10 p.m.

Earlier this week, we shared the news that the party promoters behind Verboten are finally opening their self-titled Williamsburg location (54 N. 11th St. nr. Kent Av.e) tonight. A massive party will take place in the 10,000 sq. ft. space and feature sweet tunes from Crosstown Rebels, who will put on one of their infamous Rebel Raves. The party will rage until 5 a.m.

Krash Kourse (Free) – March 15, 4 p.m.

A wise man once said that all is fair in love and Kart. He wasn’t kidding. This Saturday, Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St. at Lafayette St.) will host a Mario Kart Showdown. Attendees will compete for the title of the Greatest Kart Player Of All Time (at this one bar in Greenpoint) on the bar’s N64 system. Winners will get an awesome bar tab. Peach’s got it!

TBA Turns 1 (Free) — March 15, 7 p.m.

Help the electro-party spot (and former auto shop) TBA (395 Wythe Ave. at S. 6th St.) celebrate its first birthday. Get there early for the “dinner party” portion of the evening, where there’ll be an open bar from 7—9 p.m., along with dinner and music by Galo Akun, Michael Christopher and MAKr. Afterwards, burn the calories at the “party party,” with tunes provided by Julia Govor, Matias b2b Capo, RG and Sergio Dimoff.

Liverpool Comes To Brooklyn ($20-90) — March 17, 1—9 p.m.

Modeled after Liverpool’s annual Sound City Music Festival, the event hops the pond over to Brooklyn on St. Paddy’s Day, where folks can attend afternoon conferences at the Wythe Hotel (80 Wythe Ave. at N. 11th St.), including a brand panel featuring speakers from Shazam and other marketing agencies. Save a few bucks and catch the evening-only music showcase at the Knitting Factory (361 Metropolitan Ave. at Havemeyer St.). British artists Skepta, Drenge, Ian Prowse, PINS, Clubs & Spades, Elijah, Dev79 and Hot Soles will perform.

The Big Muppets Quiz Thing ($10 in advance, $12 at the door) — March 19, 7:30 p.m.

Well, this is adorable: Spend an otherwise uneventful Wednesday showing off your knowledge of The Muppets at Littlefield (622 Degraw St. nr. 3rd Ave.) via this multimedia trivia game hosted by quizmaster Noah Tarnow. Solve on-screen puzzles and watch clips of the lovable gang—but leave the kiddies at home (the event is 21+). Finalists get to compete in the three-way buzzer round. Tickets are available here.
