Nov. 28

Dancing on my own

Williamsburg performance venue Glasslands is closing up at the end of the year, which means so is “This Party Is Killing You,” its beloved dance party honoring the life and work of Swedish pop star Robyn. Most tickets to the final bash — dubbed “Robynsgiving” — are gone, but word on the street is that there will still be a few at the door.

11:30 pm at Glasslands (289 Kent Ave. between S. First and S. Second streets in Williamsburg, www.theglasslands.com). $5.

Saturday

Nov. 29

Sideshow sale

If you’re bored of Brooklyn holiday markets all flogging the same $20 soaps and twee tea towels, head down to Coney Island USA where things are always a little freakier. The arts center is hosting a gift market featuring some of its own staff and performers as vendors. Look out for the wares of sideshow performer Serpentina, who cuts up dolls to create insect-human hybrids and “Siamese Barbies.”

1 pm at Coney Island USA (1208 Surf Ave. between Surf Avenue and Bowery Street, www.coneyisland.com). Free.

Monday

Dec. 1

Tech the halls

This may be the most exciting thing to happen at MetroTech since they built a Chipotle. The Downtown office hub’s annual tree-lighting ceremony will this year feature a humanoid robot. The bot, which comes courtesy of the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, will turn on the lights and mingle with the crowd, alongside human entertainers and Nets players.

5 pm at MetroTech Commons (2 MetroTech Center between Lawrence and Bridge streets Downtown). Free.

Tuesday

Dec. 2

Quiz snow

Pat Kiernan is from Canada, so the man knows from cold. It is just as well, then, that Brooklyn’s favorite news anchor is returning to the Bell House for yet another trivia night, this time featuring all winter-themed pop-culture questions. We’re thinking “Game of Thrones,” we’re thinking Tonya Harding, we’re thinking, uh, Ice-T.

7:30 pm at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third streets in Gowanus, (718) 643–6510, www.thebellhouseny.com]. $26

Wedesday

Dec. 3

Break out the brewskis

A night entirely devoted to craft beer from the Midwest? You betcha! Ditch the pop and get schnookered with the brew geeks from beer blog Beerded Ladies, who are co-opting the taps at Covenhoven and filling them with celebrated and hard-to-find drafts from the likes of Bell’s, Jolly Pumpkin, Founders, Prairie Artisan Ales, Off Color Brewing, and more.

6–11:30 pm at Covenhoven [730 Classon Ave. between Park Place and Prospect Place in Crown Heights, (917) 449–6793, www.covenhovennyc.com]. Free entry.
