January 10


Misters are doing it for themselves once again, when “Boys’ Night: An All-Male Cirquelesque Revue” returns to Galapagos Art Space. The show features buff, scantily-clad dudes performing burlesque and circus arts for an audience of both admiring ladies and gents.

9 pm at Galapagos Art Space [16 Main St. at Water Street in Dumbo, (718) 222–8500,]. $20–$25.


January 11

I’m-a gonna win

Start your engines. The Diamond bar is holding a tournament for the classic Nintendo party game “Mario Kart 64.” The winner gets their bar tab paid, so decide whether you want to be Toad, Wario, or Yoshi (but not Peach; no one wants to be Peach) and prepare to tear through Koopa Troopa Beach.

4 pm at the Diamond [43 Franklin St. near Calyer Street in Greenpoint, (718) 383–5030,]. Free.


January 12

Globe trotters

Snarking at award shows is just more fun with other people — especially when one of those people is a comedian. Videology is screening the Golden Globes, which will be hosted by funny lady Maggie Ross, and also feature trivia, prizes, drink specials, and even a red carpet.

6 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. at S. First Street in Williamsburg, (718) 782–3468,]. Free.


January 14

Party hard

Calling all party people! History lecture event series the Society for the Advancement of Social Studies is cranking up the stereo and putting a lampshade on its head for its next subject — the history of partying. Probing historical topics will include “Who partied hardest in ancient Rome?” and “the ongoing war against bumpin’ dance parties.”

7 pm at the Bedford [110 Bedford Ave. at N. 11th Street in Williamsburg, (718) 302–1002,]. Free.


January 15

None more black

It is dark beer season, so give a toast to stouts, porters, and brown ales when Brooklyn Brewery pours a selection of its finest dark beers for its annual “Brooklyn Blackout” night. Brewer Garrett Oliver will be at Spuyten Devil, serving up some hard-to-find and vintage dark and stormy brews.

7 pm at Spuyten Devil [359 Metropolitan Ave. near N. Fourth Street in Williamsburg, (718) 963–4140,]. Free.
