Christmas Re-Gifting and Gettin’ Freaky

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

The gifts are unwrapped, the eggnog upchuck stain cleaned up, and all that snow has turned into sludge, it’s time to face the cold reality that Christmas is over. It was fun while it lasted and now you are the proud owner of 12 new pairs of argyle socks, a slap chop, and a gift card to Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. There’s a reason why the phrase “It’s the thought that counts” was born. But who says you have to keep these unfortunate gift blunders? Trade your way to a better gift at the “Christmas Re-Gift Show” at Comix.

Enjoy sets from five different comedians and put your name in a hat that let’s you trade in your crappy gift for one of their secret gifts or a previous person’s cast-off. As someone who has received a copy of SuperFreakonomics and decoupaged ornament set in the past, I’m all about exploring your options.

Babeland’s DIY Porn Workshop

While we were all busy Fa-la-la-ing, New Yorkers have been getting freaky at Monkeytown’s Porn Week. This performance space cum restaurant will soon be shuttering so you better get your rocks off now. They’ve been screening vintage porn from the 70’s and 80’s and even some films by Lars Von Triers production company. If you’re looking to dabble in realm of home videos, instructors from Babeland will show you how to do it right. This means no black light bullshit or last minute flings with the ex. Because if this past decade has taught us anything, everything you do eventually ends up on the internet.

Sunday. December 27, 8PM

Laura S - Spendthrift Scribe

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
