Join Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan for her official New York Homecoming Celebration at The Fashion Institute of Technology’s Haft Auditorium, for drinks and a show aptly called “Here She Is.” Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 at the door—which does not guarantee a photo with the comely Ms. Hagan that you can Instagram, but true beauty is never free. No word yet on whether the last Miss America from New York, Vanessa Williams (remember what happened to her crown? Google “Vanessa Williams nude”), will show, but “stars of stage and screen” are promised.

The Fashion Institute of Technology, 227 West 27th Street, (212) 217-7999, 7pm-12am.

In the first half of the 20th century, there were more than one hundred thousand Jews living in Iraq. Today, we estimate that there are about 12. Their legacy lives on at the Kubbeh Project, a pop-up restaurant that serves Jewish-Iraqi comfort food. The Kubbeh Project will be tucked inside the Zucker Bakery in the East Village until March 21.
