|Christmas Bliss, Free Bacon, Warhol Goes Silent, The Jolly Bowl and more
By Diana Salier
|It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! But there's still stuff to do around the city that doesn't involve stuffing your face with red and green cookies and drinking all the eggnog. Especially if you still haven't put away the menorah.|
THIS WEEK IN NYC
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23 - WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2010
Jolly Bowl: Alone this Christmas? Feel like Macaulay Culkin circa 1990? Gather up some fellow orphans and head to Brooklyn Bowl for their 2nd annual holiday party and tribal music fest.
Chinese + A Movie: Another option for the Kevin Mcallisters among us - show some respect for the late Leslie Nielsen at 92YTribeca's screening of Airplane and Naked Gun, complete with requisite all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet.
You + TRON = Free stuff: You like burgers. You like TRON. Hopefully you also like free stuff, at the possible expense of making an ass of yourself. Till Jan 30, Food Parc is offering a free burger combo to anyone who shows up with a TRON costume. You can also get free bacon or fried pickles if you just bring your ticket stub, but that's not as much fun, right?
It's A Wonderful Life After a long day of last-minute shopping and fighting over the last iPad in the store, let Jimmy Stewart lift your Scroogeness (or Grinchiness, whichever you prefer). It's A Wonderful Life screens at IFC Center until Sunday, December 26.
Andy Warhol: Motion Pictures Andy Warhol: Motion Pictures opened on Sunday at the MOMA - a collection of Warhol's silent films made between 1963 and 1966. Unlike most things this week, this has nothing to do with Christmas. Enjoy.
