The 6th annual No Office Holiday Party is returning on 12/9!

Brokelyn Office Holiday Party

Brokelyn and the skint present: The No Office Holiday Party, Brooklyn’s hottest holiday party for everyone who ain’t about that office life (or anyone who just wants to turn up without their boss watching) is coming back for its 6th year on Dec. 9, held at Littlefield (622 Degraw St.)! And it’s on a Friday this time, so we can truly wreck the halls.

Let’s say goodbye to this terrifying garbage fire of a year with style at Littlefield, where they’ll have live-band karaoke from the famous Rock Star Karaoke, DJ Doctor Mister spinning holiday tunes, a holiday photo booth, sexy Santa and Lady Santa, tasty food from Yeah Dawg and drink specials, plus lots of surprises in store this year, including some to help you take out your anger (hint: start saving up all the mean things you ever wanted to say to your boss).

Stranger Things: FIXED Halloween with S U R V I V E (Live)

In celebration of its 2nd anniversary and Halloween, Good Room has curated shows featuring some of the world’s best DJs alongside Brooklyn’s finest artists, and it’s been a rockout all weekend. The weekend’s festivities culminate on Halloween with FIXED, the party series by DJs JDH and Dave P that’s also celebrating its own anniversary – 12 years in November!

For this special show, Greenpoint’s own JDH and Philly’s Dave P are thrilled to be playing once again with Survive, whose Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein are behind the popular 80s nostalgia Stranger Things soundtrack, having played together recently in Joshua Tree and Survive’s hometown of Austin, Texas. According to JDH, he and Dave had been very impressed with the quartet’s live performances and enjoyed their cinematic sound. Obviously, Survive was the ideal partner for their Halloween show.

Was Mozart a feminist?

Reading Così fan tutte, where two young sisters are duped into betraying their fiancés in a seedy ploy to prove all ladies are infidels, it might not appear so. (The opera is often translated as “Women Are Like That.”) But if there’s any company that can dust off a passé story while still retaining its comedic sensuality, it’s LoftOpera.

“It’ll be different than your typical opera,” said Sarah Nelson Craft, the Park Slope-raised mezzo-soprano who’s playing Dorabella. “I’ve always been interested in what Loft’s doing, so I was really excited to be hired by them.” Continue reading
