A Christmas Story at Nitehawk Cinemas
To be honest, we were never really obsessed with this ostensibly iconic Christmas movie -- we were more of a It's a Wonderful Life/Garfield's Christmas Special kinda gal. But we know that the kids love this one, and as a fun treat, the folks at Williamsburg movie theater/restaurant/bar are screening it tonight at midnight.
Nitehawk Cinemas, 136 Metropolitan Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 12 a.m. $11.
No Bra at Santos Party House
Tonight's edition of artist/DJ/Santos co-owner Spencer Sweeney's Friday night party, Spencer's GIFs, features a special performance by 2010 PAPER Beautiful Person, No Bra, aka Susanne Oberbeck.
