Double-check your Klonopin stash, brave stultifying airport traffic en route to suburb far, far away for rendezvous with stocked fridge and too-small college sorority sweatpants. Alternatively, bask in city’s eerie, deflated emptiness, when restaurant reservations are finally easy to come by and everything’s on sale. Or! For those with the energy, ageless rock legend Tina Turner appears at the Prudential Center in Newark—and today’s her 69th birthday! Somebody bring this nice lady a slice of cake! If you must stay home, then Netflix Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
