This week in 24/Seven

Each week we'll preview what you can expect in our 24/Seven print edition, out Thursday for you southern Brooklynites and Friday for the downtown neighborhoods.

Highlights include:

Theater: With its New York Clown Theater Festival, the Brick Theater has become the destination for clown theater each fall. Now, it with its upcoming Fight Fest, December 4-20, the Williamsburg theater looks to do the same for another obscure performance genre: stage combat. Other stage antics in the neighborhood include The Montessori Circus Show, an avant-garde piece featuring aerialists, hula hooping, puppetry, wood chopping, baking, and some clowning thrown in for good measure, running December 3-5 and December 10-12 at the Bushwick Starr.

Dining: Park Slope's Vue Restaurant, found atop the Hotel LeBleu, has a very popular bar and lounge a flight above its neo-modern Miami-esque dining room. We take a look at the restaurant below and its innovative and very atypical bill of fare.

Music: All you need is love, and a ukulele, at the Second Annual Beatles Complete on Ukulele Festival December 5 at Brooklyn Bowl.

Columns: Pumps & Pleats checks out the "modern vintage" of Park Slope's Eponymy, while the Kitchen Klutz has a Klutzy Thanksgiving with Pecan stuffing and the Reporter's Table takes a nod to the season with a fall vegetable saute.

Books: Fort Greene-based writer Abby Sher celebrates the release of her new memoir, "Amen, Amen, Amen" with an event at Union Hall Nov. 30. A comedic performer, expect some laughs as well.
