So, now that it's like, cold, and a MetroCard is about to cost as much as a Bugaboo, our incentives to leave the Slope are few and far between. But here's a reason to be out in the city tonight:
*Thursday, November 18 (TONIGHT): Opera remixed. The L Magazine's Act 4 series, making opera rad (no, seriously). Booze, tunes, true love, etc. Here's what they say: "This Thursday is the second Act 4 installment, and the last one until the spring. The LA-based phenom of Active Child will perform following the Strauss opera Intermezzo, a great little diddy about the writer's crazy ass wife, featuring lots of drama and soprano arias." Here's the info on tix.
Also, probably the weirdest unsolicited piece of FIPS-related mail I've ever received, but why the fuck not: Park Slope Eye is having a Jono Hennessy Trunk Show on Saturday from 1 to 5. Figured I'd give you all the heads up so you can claw each other's poorly-working eyes out for some chic frames.
