|As Hanukkah winds down, the Major League Dreidel folks heat things up. Forgo that reindeer sweater for some new Williamsburg threads, dance to Daft Punk, and get your gastropub cinema on.
THIS WEEK IN NY
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9 - WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2010
RISK! Series: The 1st season of RISK! at 92YTribeca saw performances from Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo, and Michael Ian Black. This month's theme is "Eye of the Beholder" and features live stories from Aasif Mandvi of The Daily Show and Chris Wink of Blue Man Group, among others.
Studio XXI: Starting tonight (Wednesday), Chelsea's getting a new nightlife spot in the former Citrine space with Studio XXI. The interior is inspired by classic recording studio decor, and the sound system was built by the same people who brought you Limelight and the Palladium.
Daft Punk Tron: Legacy soundtrack release party: Celebrate the release of Daft Punk's TRON: Legacy soundtrack with Faux Punk, a DP cover band that recreates the former's ALIVE tour.
Major League Dreidel Tournament: Now we've seen it all - apparently there's a Major League Dreidel association? Come out for the 2010 Spin the Dreidel Tournament. Official motto: "no gelt, no glory."
reRun Theater: Catch a boozy flick at the reRun Theater, Brooklyn's newest 21+ gastropub movie theater. Don't forget to stop at reBar just down the street for a pre-show buzz.
Life: Curated: Find some hip new threads at Life: Curated, a men's and women's clothing store that opened this fall smack dab in the middle of Williamsburg. Just don't be scared of the animal head mannequins in their holiday display.
