Coming Up: Tatah Dujour Is in the House

anc_lightstahtah-courtesy-flickrTODAY: FRIDAY, MAR. 12
••• From 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the 14 restaurants in the World Financial Centerserve up sweet and savory treats for $1–$5, including Au Mandarin’s famous [Saying it doesn’t make it true. —Ed.] pork dumplings, P.J. Clarke’s always popular mini-cheeseburgers, Starbucks’s hot chocolate, and Financier’s blueberry panna cotta.” All Night Cookin’, a bluegrass band (right), provides musical accompaniment.
••• Tribeca Project Space, the McNeill Art Group’s gallery inside the lobby of Artisan Lofts, is debuting a new show—and if you swing by between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., during the opening party, you can see it without making an appointment. The multi-artist show is called The Garden, as in the Garden of Eden (it ain’t just a deli). Here are some pix. Artist Jason Hackenwerth will do what appears to be a balloon-based performance (seriously, visit his website!), and caterer Mark Fahrer is creating a spread of food with a “Flora, Fauna, and Aqua” theme.
••• The Craic Festival, a celebration of Irish and Scottish film, started yesterday and runs through Sunday at Tribeca Cinemas.
••• The Brian Newman Jazz Trio plays Duane Park restaurant starting at 11 p.m., with burlesque dancers—Catherine D’Lish is flying in from L.A., and Tatah Dujour (above right, working a blue dog) will be there, too. I’m now going to spend the rest of the day determining my burlesque name.

••• Apexart holds a silkscreening workshop for kids from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Artist McKendree Key is doing the teaching. “Kids are free to experiment with different images and patterns, including tributes to our neighbors on Canal Street in the ‘designer bag’ industry. Children do not need experience, but must be accompanied by an adult.” Materials are provided and T-shirts are available for $3.
••• Melody Sweets and the Candy Shop Boys play Duane Park at 10:30 p.m. Video!

••• “Inspired by everything from the Kinks to Queen to the Shins,” the Macaroons rock the Museum of Jewish Heritage for a special Passover concert for kids. Expect “whimsical songs about flying matzoh brei and what to do if you drop a matzoh ball” (in my house, you pick it up and eat it before anyone sees you). 1 p.m.; $10, $7 for kids 12 and under.
••• An interactive version of Little Engine That Could (above), produced by Omaha Theater for Young People, pulls into the Tribeca Performing Arts Center at 3 p.m. Just think what Tatah Dujour could do to that train…. Alas, the show is for ages 3 and up; $25.
••• Health and wellness coach Marissa Vicario leads a workshop at New Field Yoga on creating your own indulgent skin care products from natural ingredients. 5:30 p.m., $20.

••• The general public may begin buying advance-selection ticket packages for the Tribeca Film Festival; details are here and a taste of what’s playing is here.
