Ah, the post-Thanksgiving, pre-Christmas interregnum. God help you if you actually thought you were getting any work done these next three weeks. You are not. So why not just go all out with the not-trying, and spend every night partaking of Brooklyn's fine entertainment options. You may get yourself fired, but hey, the New Year's just around the bend, and someone will be hiring. Welcome to Whassup: Hollandaise Edition:
* Thursday, Dec. 5: Heart of Darkness: In Space!, Bell House: In space, no one can hear you laughing uproariously. (Congratulations, you've just read the one billionth iteration of the "In space, no one can hear you…" construction.) Unfortunately, you would also not be able to breathe or hear Todd Barry make calm-voiced cutting remarks in space. Both huge losses. Un-unfortunately, this Heart of Darkness special will not actually take place in space, but instead, at the Bell House, right here on Earth. And Todd Barry will be there, using the abundant oxygen and atmospheric pressure to its full potential. Comedians Elizabeth Gallagher and Rich Stein, along with musical guests The Mast join this live variety show. 8pm, $10-$12.
* Friday, Dec. 6-Saturday, Dec. 7: Crafted at the Canal, 9th St. and 2nd Ave: This holiday craft fair celebrates re-use, a rare commodity in this disposable culture of our -- sorry, laptop's acting up. Just gonna quick throw it out and get a new one…Ok, back. Anyway, they'll have shit like photographs framed in reclaimed lumber, jewelry born from recycled bike skeletons, classic dolls reanimated by evil, and hand-crafted furniture. This fair, you see, she's crafty. 5-9pm Fri, 10am-5pm Sat, FREE to attend (cash only for purchases).
