Many Charitable People in Ugly Sweaters
THE WIN-WIN

Many Charitable People in Ugly Sweaters

It’s an ugly sweater party and toy drive, wherein you’ll don the most heinous holiday-themed knit you can find, bring a wrapped toy for a kid who might want one and receive a free drink for your thoughtful actions. You’re essentially a very poorly dressed Santa Claus.

Thursday
Snowball Fights and a Mistletoe Grotto, Right This Way
THE WILD CARD

Snowball Fights and a Mistletoe Grotto, Right This Way

Oh, this? This is three floors of Santas, hot toddies, plush snowball fights, tons of Christmas lawn decorations, a mistletoe grotto and a makeshift Christmas tree forest that’s home to an evil Krampus. Yes, Krampus is already an institution.

Dec 22-23, 6-10pm, rooftop access $5, Northern Pole Territory, 12 Franklin St (at Meserole), Brooklyn, 347-689-4065

Friday
You’re About to Know So Much About Martin Scorsese
THE SCORSESE

You’re About to Know So Much About Martin Scorsese

The Deutsche Kinemathek organized this Scorsese-centric show, which has 600 artifacts from Scorsese’s personal collection on display, tracing his career from his birth in Little Italy. Expect photos, costumes, props, screenplays, a retrospective of his films and ample servings of profanity and violence.

Saturday
Because You’ve Never Seen Something Like This Before, Have You?
THE SUGGESTIVE LATKES

Because You’ve Never Seen Something Like This Before, Have You?

Sexy dreidels and scantily clad menorah dancers. Why, yes, this is a raucous Hanukkah-themed burlesque show hosted by the Schlep Sisters. Good guess.

Ilana Dadras cannot discern between situations in which sarcasm is and is not appropriate. Her favorite things include mezcal cocktails, Big Sur and writing about herself in the third person.
