Like most places, the blues are not alive and well in NYC. Other than a few bars in Harlem, the best-known "blues club" per se in NYC, Terra Blues in the Village, isn't worth your time/money in my opinion, but if you want to check out Junior Mack, say, there, go ahead.

The Knicks may have a playoff game Sunday afternoon. The Liberty play their home opener in Brooklyn against Caitlin Clark's Indiana Fever tomorrow afternoon, with another game Monday night. You won't get tickets to any but the last of these.

The Yankees are at home through Thursday, with day games Sunday and Thursday. The Mets return Friday the 24th, with day games starting the next afternoon, when they'll wear unusual, ugly uniforms.
