1) This is not about the 1960s TV sitcom “The Flying Nun.” The real nun who really took off then was Sister Mary Corita Kent. While teaching art at a small Catholic college, she skyrocketed to fame through her own artwork, a major collection of which is now on display at The Andy Warhol Museum. The show, titled Someday Is Now: The Art of Corita Kent, is a natural one for the museum. Kent worked in (and pushed the boundaries of) a medium that Warhol also favored, silkscreen printing. The exhibit includes a big sampling of Kent’s early pieces along with many of the works she did after leaving the sisterhood in 1968 and becoming a full-time artist. Through April 19. 10 a.m – 5 p.m. 117 Sandusky St., North Side.

2) The Pens are still searching for the elusive formula for massive success. Tonight they get another opportunity to work out the kinks with a 7 p.m. game against the St. Louis Blues. Consol Energy Center, 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.

3) Getaway to the tropics with a trip to Brillobox for Tropical Tuesdays. There you’ll feel the trade winds (heat flowing from ducts) soothing your overdue vacation bones. Here’s a sampling of their specials: $3 select craft cans, $4 frozen drinks, $10 California bubble bath, $10 Eva Peron, $7 Fernet con cola, and $6 Coronita Margaveza. You can also sop up the island drinks with $7 pineapple soy-glazed chicken or tofu skewers served with Caribbean sweet potato salad. Shoes and shirt required. 5 p.m. – 2 a.m. 4104 Penn Ave., Bloomfield.
