I will undoubtedly be posting further events for this week but here are a few to mull over…

If you haven’t checked out the Monday night stand-up comedy at Pete’s Candy Store you should definitely head out there tomorrow. Jennifer Dziura hosts; there are 5 comics, free candy and no cover! She actually read at the In the Flesh Erotic Reading Series last year; check out the video:

I particularly like this line:

I bet half the people in this room, you have sex because you hope you can get somebody to listen to your feelings.

Tuesday check out the not-so-secret secret play space- The House of Yes. As a twist on their usual crafting sessions they’ll be celebrating Mardi Gras by providing materials for the production of masks, or… whatever. As usual at The House of Yes what you create is up to you; it’s the act of creation that’s important!

There are still tickets left for the Natural Wine Dinner that Brooklyn Based is hosting at the Roebling Tea Room on Wednesday! Here’s their blurb about the event:

Our friends at Jenny & Francois Selections are hosting a week of tastings and wine events this month, and we’ve teamed up with them and Roebling Tea Room to give you a chance to break bread, drink wine and listen to several winemakers speak about their methods. Jenny & Francois import natural wines, which are made from grapes grown without chemicals, and produced without sugar, sulfites or any other additives. Wines made in this style reflect the quality of the grapes, the land, the weather and the skill of the winemaker with unparalleled purity and character.

On Thursday there are two fantastic events that you should consider carefully. The first is at BAM; ‘Shuffle Mode’ is a night of musical convergence.

Michael Christie and the Brooklyn Philharmonic host a night with progressive indie rock bands Bell Orchestre and Clogs in an exciting musical dialogue that defies the expectations for classical concert programming.

I expect this to be a brilliant musical experience; if you’re interested you should get your ticket ASAP.

The second Thursday event appeals to the environmentalist in us all; Clearwater is having a benefit at the Brooklyn Brewery. The Hudson River Sloop (aka boat) is an environmental classroom on the water; the idea is that with direct access to the river people will feel more connected and committed to its protection. The organization also promotes sound environmental policy and fights polluters. This benefit will raise money to allow public school students in Brooklyn to partake of these wonderful educational river outings.

What a weekend we have ahead of us! I personally am throwing a party Saturday night so I won’t be able to make as many of these stellar events as I would like but I think it’s going to be an amazing party so I suspect I’ll be able to get over the loss (Flavor tripping masquerade).

Tonight, as previously discussed, Dare Dukes will be performing at Banjo Jims and will give a free CD to anyone who informs him that they heard about his show from TheBigRedApple. Please check him out (haha) and report back.

Also tonight, Rachel Kramer Bussel, the organizer of the ‘In the Flesh Erotic Reading Series,’ amongst other things, tells me she will be attending the Evening Symposium- ‘Sex in America- Can the Conversation Change’ at The Blood Center.

Join some of the most bold and distinguished thinkers on sex in America in a thoughtful and provocative conversation about sex, pleasure, desire, eroticism, infidelity and monogamy.

ALSO tonight (feeling overwhelmed yet?), check out BAM Jam for free:

Cello wunderkind Rufus Cappadocia burns through ecstatic wails, slap-stringed grooves, and transcendent riffs with gorgeous sound and technique to spare—all on an amped 5-string cello he designed himself.

Tonight AND tomorrow the Glasslands Gallery will be hosting Williamsburg’s Fashion Week. For all of you who love to ogle pretty clothes but haven’t managed to find a way into the tents in Bryant Park (yours truly lusts after those tickets almost as much as I lust after the iPhone), this is the perfect opportunity. And of course the afterparties will feature bands and DJs who are way too cool for Anna Wintour.

Also on Saturday you can support the New Amsterdam Market and help to make local oysters and sustainable food a part our city. The fundraiser will include some amazing local beer, bread, butter and oysters, just to name a few of the fabulous offerings.

On Saturday and Sunday head over to the Park Slope United Methodist Church for an amazing book sale. There will be books, DVDs, CDs, vinyl and even tapes for sale from 50 cents to $2 and if you buy 10 you get one free!

Also on Sunday you can hear David Polonsky discuss his film ‘Waltz with Bashir’ at the JCC– just in time for the Oscars!

Sunday evening if you aren’t having some sort of Oscar gathering of your own check out these spots for the best views of dresses and golden men:

  • At Mulhollands proceeds from the costumed Oscar viewing event will go to the Red Hook Initiative . Pull on that mask and drink with the comfort of knowing that you’re supporting a good cause!
  • At the Village Pourhouse you’ll have access to an excess of giant screens so you won’t miss a bit of the unfortunate fashion choices.

Have a wonderful weekend and if you go to any of these events please let me know what you think!

I’ll be off to lunch shortly and I’m hoping I’ll be able to stomach something… last night shortly after posting my cheerful review of Merchants NY Cafe I was struck by a nasty bout of food poisoning. I checked with A and she was fine so I assume it was the scallops. Ugh… totally unattractive puking up of guts. I suspect it will be some time before I eat seafood again. I’m going to call the restaurant later and let them know, as politely as possible, so that they’ll be more careful where they buy seafood in the future. I actually hesitated to post about it because I truly believe it was a fluke thing and that the restaurant is solid in general. Sigh… Well, whether you try it or not be aware that these things can happen in the best of places. I mean the review in NY Magazine was great so I wasn’t the only one to feel like it was worth trying.

On a much happier note, I forgot to mention that there is yet another event you should consider for this evening! The ‘In the Flesh Erotic Reading Series’ is taking place at Happy Endings tonight. “Sex guru Susie Bright” and her team of contributing writers will be reading stories of

gas-station hookups, Baltimore prosties and tennis matches where lob has a whole other meaning.

If that’s not enough of a reason to head downtown don’t forget that Happy Endings has some amazing specialty cocktails.

If that association isn’t erotic enough for you I don’t know what is!
