Pope Scope, Pt. 2 Oops—it’s actually Earth Day, Charlie Brown! Spoiled private-school children empty out of uptown co-ops, get miserably high and proceed to Rumsey Playfield in Central Park for an celebration that includes a performance by Ricky Skaggs and Big Head Todd & the Monsters (Diana Ross it ain’t) not to mention—oh, dear—“family planting and mulching projects.” The real question is: Will chic reusable canvas eco-bags be available for purchase? Later, how do you make an afternoon at Yankee Stadium truly wild? Stir in some Pope! It’s the last day of the Official Papal Visit and so the multiculti Young People’s Chorus of New York City will lift their voices during a solemn Pontifical Mass. Feel mild guilt for refusing to call your mother on Easter, then get over it.
[Earth Day in Central Park, Rumsey Playfield, noon to 4 p.m.; Papal Mass, www.archny.org, tickets through the church only]
