Here's a Brooklyn Christmas treat for you: Brooklyn's finest set of depressing indie droners, The National, get transmogrified into Christmas ornaments on every nerd's favorite cartoon, "Bob's Burgers" (you know that show is set in Brooklyn, or NYC at least) -- trans-bob-grafied, if you will. All so they can sing Linda Belcher's "Christmas Magic." I expect that should get you Brooklyn hipsters into the holiday spirit, just enough to earn a place on Santa's so-naughty-let's-just-not-even-talk-about-it list. Oh yeah, and Merry Christmas. Welcome to Whassup: So This Is Chrimbus Edition:
* ALL WINTER: Bartel-Pritchard Greenmarket: The corner of Prospect Park, at 15th Street and Prospect Park West, has hosted a produce and seafood market summers and falls, and will now stay open for the winter. So, go get some greens to put inside you while the whole city is white. (That was a snow comment, not a racial thing. Don't make it political.) Open Wednesdays, except Christmas and New Year's Eves, 8am-3pm.
* CHRISTMAS: Traditional Jewish Christmas (Chinese Feast), Mile End (Boerum Hill): If you're Jewish, or if the Bumpuses' dogs nosh your turkey (sonsabitches!!), you might be in search of a "traditional" Xmas meal of Kung Pao, Generl Tso and the like. Boerum Hill's Mile End Deli gets all fusion with it, fixing up Chinese-Jewish fare like "corned beef and kraut wontons." Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646-494-9508 for reservations. Also happens Dec. 26. $65 reservations.
