TRIBECA — Celebrate Lao New Year at Khe-Yo where chef Phet Schwader and his mother are putting out a week-long menu of family recipes like grilled porgy stuffed with lemongrass and galangal, crispy fish jerky, and grilled goat, a dish only served on special occasions in Laos. The festivities will go from April 13 to 19. [Eaterwire]

WEST VILLAGE — Head to Toloache for a Mexican Passover charity brunch on April 12. Everything down to the live Mexican-influenced Klezmer music will fit into the Mexican/Jewish theme. The menu includes dishes like Yucatan-style whitefish and avocado salad and brisket tacos served in matzo tortillas. All proceeds from the brunch go to Living with Dignity, a charity that provides mobility tools to the elderly. Tickets cost $150 and include an open bar of margaritas and wine. [Eaterwire]

SOHO — For the entire month of April chef Alan Wise will be putting out a six-course Games, Guts, and Off Cuts menu at Public. Expect offal in various forms, like beef heart tartare with pine nuts, sumac, sesame, and caper butter toast. The menu costs $79 with an additional $55 for a beverage pairing. [Eaterwire]

AROUND TOWN — SubCulture Dining's supper series "Chrch" is throwing a dinner on April 13 that fuses SoCal Latin dishes with '80s music — think Sammy Hagar, Cheap Trick, Steely Dan, Journey, and Blue Oyster Cult. Chef Russell Jackson's six-course menu is still a mystery, as is the location of this dinner, but those details should be come clear to those who put down $79 for tickets. Keep in mind, the tickets do not cover including beverages or gratuity. [Eaterwire]
