Celebrate Purim with Tablet

Marc Tracy
February 17, 2010

Hanukkah is the best holiday, if you’re a kid. Tu B’Shevat is the best holiday, if you’re a tree-hugger. Yom Kippur is the best holiday, if you’re a masochist.

For everyone else, Purim—when you are basically religiously obligated to party—tops ‘em all. And if you’re looking for a place to observe the holiday with all the rigor your faith demands—oh, and if you live in or near New York City—may we humbly suggest Jdub Records’s Hamanbashin get-down, co-sponsored by Tablet Magazine? It promises to be a night of great music, wacky costumes, and fun times. Under strict religious auspices, of course.

Time: Saturday, February 27th, 9 P.M.-1 A.M.

Place: CSV Cultural Center, down in New York’s Lower East Side.

Tickets: Get ‘em here: $10 advance, $15 at the door.

Hope to see you there!
