5 Things: Trivia Night at the Transit Museum

Local news, events, and information you won't want to miss.

1. Drop some knowledge.
 Tonight the MTA Transit Museum is throwing its inaugural underground Trivia Night, with transit-themed questions hosted and posited by Stuart Post and Chris Kelley. 6:30 p.m. $15 tickets at the door. Prizes for winners and refreshments for all.

2. Plan your wedding. Get engaged over the holidays? Love the outdoors? Then you might want to pop on over to the Open House at Prospect Park's Picnic House to learn about nuptial options there. Those who attend will receive 10% off any weddings booked before Jan. 31, 2013! 5:30 p.m. No cover. RSVP here.

3. Take it to the curb. Last call for Christmas trees! If you don't bring yours out to the sidewalk by Saturday, Jan. 19, the city will not be picking them up after that.

4. Set a Google alert. Tomorrow tickets go on sale for two Barclays Center events that are sure to be in high demand: Legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman & Cantor Yitzhak Meir Helfgot will perform their signature version of "Jewish comfort music" on Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. (I saw these two perform at Lincoln Center recently and it is a very special experience.) For those more indie-minded, look for the release of tickets for Brooklyn's own The National, scheduled to play on June 5 at 8 p.m. (Plus, Youth Lagoon will open!) Ticket prices vary. Check the Barclays site for more information.

5. Move the car. Alternate side is in effect today. The next suspension is Monday, Jan. 21 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
