The three best things to do in New York today

Jillian Anthony

1. See Fun Home
On Sunday, Fun Home won the Tony Award for Best Musical, and with good reason. Adapted from a graphic memoir by cartoonist Alison Bechdel, the musical is not just groundbreaking in its treatment of lesbian and gay identity; it is also smart, bittersweet and powerfully personal. (Circle in the Square, 1633 Broadway, 7pm. $75-$150, premium $175-$200.)

2. Go to the Museum Mile Festival
A 23-block stretch of Fifth Avenue becomes a car-free promenade when ten of the city’s most prestigious art institutions—including the Guggenheim, the Met and the Museum of the City of New York—open their doors to the public free of charge for three hours—plan to get there early if you want to see big-name shows. Musical performances, including string quartets and jazz ensembles, will enhance your walk from one museum to the next. (5th Ave between 82nd and 105th Sts, 6–9pm. Free.)

3. Eat Kanye-flavored ice cream
Yes, you read that right. This week, Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream is celebrating Yeezus' 38th birthday with creamy creations like the Bowl Digger (two scoops of chocolate ice cream with whipped cream, fudge and a cherry) and the I Am a God Ice Cream Croissantwich (vanilla ice cream inside a custom-made Arcade Bakery croissant). You've got until Saturday to get a taste of Kanye. (2 Rivington St, 8am–11pm. $4.50-$8.50)
