trade school!

Because that tax refund won’t spend itself.

Trade School Returns
Take an item from the teachers’ wish list (soil samples, Indian spices, good vibes) in exchange for a tutorial in an area of their expertise.
Why: Learn to draft the perfect OKCupid profile, tap into your inner fortune-teller, or figure out the best way to crowd-fund.
When: Schedule online at tradeschool.coop.
Where: 139 Norfolk St., b/t Rivington & Stanton Sts.

Never Sleep Alone

What: Sex therapist Dr. Alex Schiller (played by comedian Roslyn Hart) walks an audience of singles and voyeurs (couples) through her tweaked rules of courtship with the aim of getting everyone laid.

When: Sat., 11:30 p.m.
Where: Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette St., at Astor Pl. Tickets ($30-$35) online at joespub.com.

Pok Pok NY Opens
What: From chef Andy Ricker (the man who introduced the LES to the best wings ever), an intimate temple devoted to flavorful, balanced Thai cuisine.

Where: 127 Columbia St., at Kane St., Red Hook (718-923-9322).
