|These guys have the right idea.|
As I'm writing this, it's snowing. Welcome, Winter, to our city. We're going to complain about you. Trudge to shows in boots and parkas. Drink more whiskey than we should, because it's "keeping us warm," and be generally morose until you're done. But we like you. We like the snow and the fifteen minutes it looks pretty until this great city turns it into sludge. Let's celebrate, shall we, for Winter is here! Trek outside, there's good stuff happening this weekend...

All this snow also means that it's sweater season, which means that it's UGLY sweater season and the best way to celebrate that is with a party. Duh. Brooklyn Wildlife is throwing the party of the weekend with Stonehenge Parnhashnakovsky (Chris Carr, SZ #22). Come for the music, stay for the mistletoe. And it's all going down at a secret loft on McKibben St. 9pm $5 early/$10 late LINK
