Poets House’s annual Poetry Walk benefit across the Brooklyn Bridge; Bill Murray often participates. ••• A Matter of Taste, the documentary about Corton chef Paul Liebrandt, airs on HBO at  p.m. The film is about an hour and entertaining.

Denitia Odigie plays the Bubble Lounge: “Born and raised outside of Houston, Texas, Denitia’s earliest musical memories juxtapose classic country and 60s era soul on her memory’s mixtape.”

The new comedy Loveless, set in Soho, screens at 92YTribeca. ••• Also at 92YTribeca: “Fisticuffs,” which is described as “Iron Chef” for cartoonists. Left: A photo from the Fisticuffs blog. ••• Greg Laswell plays City Winery.
