The three best things to do in New York today

By Lea Ceasrine

Get your candy crush on at the grand opening of Dylan's Candy Bar: Union Square
Grab a signature goody box of gummy bears, rainbow sour belts, and chocolate-covered candies at the brand new location of one of New York's favorite candy stores! (Plus, tomorrow you can taste the brand new Mean Girls-inspired jelly beans.) The ribbon cutting will be accompanied by Brooklyn United Marching Band, so of course, the rush of people and sugar will be equally high. Dylan's Candy Bar, 33 Union Square West; 11am; free 

Catch a free screening of the Met's "Iolanta/Bluebeard's Castle"
Tonight, the Summer HD Festival displays a compelling and chilling two-in-one opera, Tchaikovsky's fairy tale "Iolanta" followed by the story of a troubled wife in Bartok's "Bluebeard's Castle." The nearly three-hour-long show debuted earlier this year at the Metropolitan Opera. 3,100 free seats are available outside the plaza, but it's best to arrive early to guarantee a spot. Lincoln Center Plaza; 7:30pm; free 

Rock out Fleetwood Mac style to Delta Rae + Liz Longley
Hailing from North Carolina, the rock music group Delta Rae first broke out on the indie scene two years ago with their hit song "If I Loved You" featuring Fleetwood guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Catch them tonight on their almost-sold-out tour with talented singer Liz Longley. Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 8pm; $20
