The Weekend Guide

Blow on these dice, March.

Shipwrecked! An Entertainment: The Amazing Adventures of Luis De Rougement (As Told by Himself)
A 19th-century adventure tale about a pearl-hunting expedition gone awry. (After washing up on a deserted island, the protagonist is incorporated into an aboriginal tribe.) It’s wild but not kitschy.
Why: Three tireless players for all characters and sound effects.
When: Thru Mar. 7. Tues., 7 p.m.; Wed.-Fri., 8 p.m.; Sat., 2 & 8 p.m.
Where: 59E59 Theaters, 59 E. 59th St., b/t Madison & Park Aves. (212-279-4200). Tix and info at ticketcentral.com.

Madame Geneva: Gin History, Cocktails, and Lore
Mixology wunderkind David Wondrich and PDT personality Jim Meehan will have you sampling potent concoctions of the shit-kicking liquor.
Why: Vodka’s for ladies. Who wants to be one of those?
When: Sat., 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: Astor Center, 399 Lafayette St., at E. 4th St. (212-763-0832). Tix and info at astorcenternyc.com.

The New Dark Age
Cast of trippy characters (dressed in “neon Aztec organic spandex”), glowing guts, and ladders leading nowhere. Is this what it feels like to be trapped in an arcade game?
Why: Devised by compelling comic book artist Ben Jones.
When: Thurs.-Sat., noon-6 p.m.
Where: Deitch Projects, 76 Grand St., b/t Wooster & Greene Sts. (212-343-7300).

Woodworking Course

Where: 3rd Ward, 195 Morgan Ave., at Stagg St., Bushwick (718-715-4961).

Farinella’s Four-Footers
Pizza! Of the Roman variety (thin crust), cooked with care in a triple-decker electric oven and sold by the slice.
Why: The new Italian bakery serves lunch to the neglected FiDi set.
When: Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.- 7 p.m.
Where: 90 Worth St., at Broadway (212-608-3222).

Armani Ristorante 5th Avenue
Swank Italian eatery sits atop Giorgio’s even swankier new midtown boutique.
Why: Gnocchetti, pappardelle, zucchini flan. So this is what fashion-friendly carb loading tastes like.

Where: 717 Fifth Ave., at 56th St. (212-207-1902).
