Time marches on -- and so does March itself, which, somehow, is almost over. Thankfully there's a bunch of great stuff to do the final week of this month, including partying with some cartoonish Japanese metal dudes, sampling Argentinian BBQ, and laughing at some of the best comedians in the country.

Wear purple to The Regent's annual Prince tribute Just because the most legendary Super Bowl performer of all time is gone doesn't mean you can't spend some time getting funky with him, which is why The Regent's throwing a sing-along-encouraged party with a screening of Purple Rain. Dearly beloved, gather here today.

Put on headphones for Tasty Tunes This collaboration between lauded Union chef Bruce Kalman and HUSHconcerts (the guys who put on the super-popular silent disco parties on the pier) should be very interesting: Over the four-course dinner, attendees will hear a playlist of songs Kalman's selected to go with each dish. Union's a notoriously loud restaurant, so at least now you'll have an excuse for not talking to your date.
