Five events this week: Run through Midtown partially naked for a good cause


There’s something about running through Midtown while scantily clad that warms our hearts. Cupid’s Undie Run is back this week. The fundraising event is a benefit for those affected by NF, a genetic disorder affecting one in every 3,000 births. We covered it last year and can attest: It is a lot of fun.

Also on deck this week are some new theater productions, comedy and a lecture on food waste. More events are below. Have a great week.
