Smells like Spring! Which means lunches in depressing concrete plazas next to Au Bon Pain! Which reminds us: It’s been a while since we celebrated the gays! GayFest NYC brings you five plays about the gay experience (not that we’re not all living the gay experience here in New York already, but whatever), including Edward the King (Bonus dirty excerpt!: “Beset by the duties of his birth and dominated by a heroic father, Edward looks forward to a life of apparent conformity and desperate subterfuge, until he meets Piers Gaveston in a dirty alley.”) Later, Tod’s on Madison Avenue fetes closet organizer Melanie Charlton Fascitelli’s important new book on … closet organization! Expected to attend are designer-socialite Celerie Kemble, turbo-socialite Tinsley Mortimer, and designer of busty fashions and former Jerry Seinfeld inamorata Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss. Because, you know, in these troubled times it’s nice to break from depressing talk of saving the children and the environment and concentrate on color-coordinating one’s separates!

[Edward the King, TBG Arts Center, 312 West 36th Street, 8 p.m., 212-352-3101; Tod’s cocktails for Shop Your Closet, 650 Madison Avenue, 6 p.m., 212-524-6437]
