Do you have a sweet tooth? This week, you can order a special set of Asian fusion treats (available for one day only) and pretty Bridgerton-inspired baked goods for when you’re binge-watching the new season (which drops on March 25).

If you feel like staying in, there’s a music festival online, as well as an Irish film festival that you can check out in person or online. But for those who miss doing things in person, there’s a Justin Bieber concert and a citywide art festival promoting local talent.
