photography… At the Jen Bekman Gallery, 6 Spring [Eliz/Bowery] 212.219.0166, now through Sunday, is their "Hey, Hot Shot!" competition in which photographers submit their best shot. Pictured: Untitled by Claire Hester. If that pic isn't exactly how we feel about March in NY, dreaming of elusive warm weather, maybe just on the other side of the wall…

shebeen… Perhaps not on St. Patty's Day, but just about any other time, we're happy to stop off at Molly's, 287 3rd [22nd/23rd] 212.889.3361, where there's sawdust on the floor, the fire is stoked, and the Guinness is perfect. A shebeen, which Molly's calls itself, is, roughly, an Irish speakeasy.

Series at KGB, 85 E. 4th [Bowery/2nd] 212.505.3360, features writers reading pieces less than 15 minutes with "at least one thing in them that makes people laugh."
