We’ve got a well-rounded weekend coming up: a reading, some karaoke, live music, an art showcase. Something for everyone to do; now let’s get out there and do it!
Thursday March 21
• Don’t forget about Brooklyn by the Book’s Bronfman Haggadah event tonight. Stop by Congregation Beth Elohim for a Passover wine tasting from Slope Cellars, delicious treats from Gefilteria, and a conversation with Edgar M. Bronfman, Jan Aronson, and Rabbi Andy Bachman about The Bronfman Haggadah just out from Rizzoli.
274 Garfield Place at 8th Avenue; 7:30 p.m.; tickets are free for CBE members, $10 suggested donation for the public. RSVP is requested; reserve tickets here.
Friday March 22
• Stop by Union Hall for their infamous late-night karaoke dance party Karaoke Killed the Cat. The raucous event promises to win over even the strongest karaoke haters, mixing sing-alongs with ”crowd surfing, choreography and feats of strength.” Tip: Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” makes the crowd go wild.
702 Union Street at 5th Avenue, midnight, free.
Saturday March 23
• Renaldo Domino is stopping by Littlefield this weekend and he’s bringing the Brooklyn Rhythm Band. Nicknamed for a voice that was sweet as sugar, the Chicago-based soul singer has toured with legends like the Jackson 5 and James Brown. The night will open with a tribute to other soul legend Marva Whitney, bringing out some guest vocalists to do her hits.
622 Degraw Street between 2nd & 3rd Avenues, 9:00 p.m., tickets $15-20 available here.
Sunday March 24
• Every month, Two Moon Art House & Cafe hosts an Artist Party: a night for artists and performers to come together and perform their music, show movie trailers, tell jokes, introduce their newest project, and meet and mingle. Each party features five artists’ showcases (like Ben Pawlowski’s, pictured above). this month the roster is full, but anyone interested in presenting in the future can email Two Moon to try to reserve a spot. This weekend, come out to meet and drink with a bunch of awesome people.
315 Fourth Avenue at 3rd Street, 7:00 p.m., free
• Support the Hurricane Sandy Relief Kitchen at their spaghetti fundraiser. Live bands will play all night, and the continuously refreshed buffet will include food generously donated from neighborhood restaurants. Drinks will be available at the cash bar.
