Calling All Gardeners

If you have a green thumb and a patch of land to work with that's just screaming for some inspiration, or if you'd just like to pretend you do, don't miss "In the World of Flowers," an exhibit of garden equipment and flowers, much of which is for sale. "In the World of Flowers" (V Mire Tsvetov) runs through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the Hermitage Garden, 3 Karetny Ryad. Metro Pushkinskaya, Mayakovskaya. Tel. 299-1160, 209-7827.

The Lower Depths

The age-old rumor that the New York sewer is home to giant crocodiles has been proven false, but have they gone below ground in our fair city lately? It's something to think about, at the very least. And Steve Miner's hilarious horror movie "Lake Placid," starring Bridget Fonda and Bill Pullman, provides plenty of food for thought (and for creatures of the deep) at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and midnight Thursday at the American House of Cinema in the Radisson Slavjanskaya Hotel, 2 Berezhkovskaya Naberezhnaya. Metro Kievskaya. Tel. 941-8747.

Brick by Brick

Who says you have to grow up in East LA or Harlem to play decent rap? These days, even former Little Octoberists from St. Petersburg are getting into the game. The 11-member Kirpichi, or Bricks, play at 11 p.m. Thursday at Bunker, 12 Tverskaya Ulitsa. Metro Tverskaya. Tel. 200-1506.
