The Weekend: 12.24-12.27


There are lots of family obligations this weekend for sure, but for those looking to get out, here's what's going on near you:

Thursday, December 24

Have a Ball: Forget Chinese food and the movies this year. Brooklyn Bowl (61 Wythe Ave.) is throwing its first annual Matzah Bowl this year for those looking to break from their own traditional Jewish holiday plans. The event will feature Israeli performers Days Like Months and Pey Dalid, as well as drink and bowling specials, and menus from nearby kosher restaurants. At 8:15 p.m. Tickets $12. Over in Park Slope, Southpaw (125 Fifth Ave.) hosts JDub's annual Jewltide, a night of funk from Dan Saks (of DeLeon) & The Funkadeli All-Stars. At 9 p.m. Tickets $10 in advance, $15 at the door.


Afrobeat: Antibalas take a break from their December residency this week at Knitting Factory, but you can catch them on stage in Fela! this winter and get your afrobeat fix.

Theater: St. Ann's extended its popular run of "Brief Encounter" until January 17. Get your tickets before they're gone.

Sunday, December 27

Music: Dar Williams has her own holiday tradition: a Brooklyn show after Christmas. Make it your own as well and see her at Southpaw tonight. Tickets are $25 in advance, available for purchase at, or $30 at the door.
