Under the bright lights of the world-famous Madison Square Garden arena, four of the best women’s college basketball teams in the country will tip off in the Maggie Dixon Classic. The first game pits Baylor against St. John’s before DePaul takes on Tennessee to guess the number of jellybeans hidden inside the basketball. The undefeated Baylor Bears, ranked No. 1 in the nation nine games into the season, follow the lead of junior slam-dunk machine Brittney Griner. Pumped up from her placement on the Naismith Trophy early-season watch list, St. John’s senior forward Da’Shena Stevens will induce frustrated growls from Baylor as she makes them work for their points. With 15 NCAA Tournament appearances in the last 23 years, DePaul’s squad enters the high-pressure match gracefully, and Tennessee confidently follows the lead of its celebrated coach, Pat Summitt, named Sports Illustrated’s Sportswoman of the Year for her more than 1,000 wins and ability to slam dunk while riding a unicycle.
Discover the exact location where music meets visual art and toast their mutual admiration. Since this Groupon is good for two tickets, use this opportunity to repay a friend who introduced you to the healing power of string quartets or to experience date night in the middle of the day. Spend an afternoon at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium at the Brooklyn Museum soaking up the auditory gravy. Call ahead to reserve your seats.
If you and a friend are considering going to the Brooklyn Museum—or seeing Deborah Harry—anytime in the next year, you’d be wise to spend $35 to snag today's Groupon: a one-year Family and Friends membership to the Brooklyn Museum. Since admission to the Brooklyn Museum is normally $10 per person, if you and your art-loving friend go just twice in the next year, today's Groupon more than pays for itself. This membership is good for two adults plus up to four kids under the age of 18.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.

Reflecting the diverse scope and scale of science itself, the exhibits at the New York Hall of Science range from massive NASA rockets to holographic depictions of the infinitesimal atom. Originally built for the 1964 World's Fair to showcase technological advancements, the center has since transformed into an interactive museum that, since 1986, has seen more than 7 million visitors. Today, more than 450 interactive exhibits invite visitors of all ages to explore the world by watching living microbes thrive and evolve in a miniscule zoo, discovering the powerful mathematics hidden in everyday objects, and testing their understanding of physics and Plutonian trash talk on a mini-golf course inspired by the cosmos.
