GO

Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge Think your pup is cool? He’s got nothing on the seriously talented dogs from across the country coming to compete in events like freestyle flying disc, Jack Russell hurdle racing, head-to-head weave poles and dog diving. Yeah, that’s a thing. Preliminaries: March 1, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Finals: March 2, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free, Rio.

New York City Ballet The respected and revered ballet company presents Moves, an evening of noted works by Jerome Robbins, Peter Martins, Christopher Wheeldon and co-founder George Balanchine. March 5 & 6, 7:30 p.m., $26-$149, Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall.

HEAR

Carrie Underwood She almost certainly won’t bring her crazy Grammy-night projection dress to town, but she will have her hit-stuffed catalog (count ’em: 11 No. 1s in seven years), and that’s what matters most, right? With Hunter Hayes, May 2, 7:30 p.m., $46-$66, Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Bob Weir Jerry Garcia died 18 years ago, but the Grateful Dead’s adventurous musical spirit lives on through the band’s “other” singer/guitarist. Show him your love will not fade away. March 1, 8 p.m., $50-$75, the Pearl.

LAUGH

Bill Cosby You might have grown up watching him on TV, but his stand-up—focused mostly on family dynamics—is where he really shines. He’ll hit you where it hurts to laugh. March 1, 8 p.m., $65-$87, Treasure Island.

EAT

Naked City Swine & Wine Chris Palmeri’s pizza shop is already one of our favorite places to grab a slice. This Sunday the chef ditches his regular menu for a five-course dinner celebrating porcine goodness and craft wines. Chocolate dipped bacon with maple gelato, anyone? March 3, 6 p.m., $50, Naked City Pizza Shop inside Moondoggies, 3240 Arville St.
