Unsilent and Unholy Nights in New York

December 01, 2016

Holiday alternatives fighting for your attention this season? Our picks give you a clear path to a riotous Christmas.

December 9th @ 8:00 pm

Office employment might have one thing going for it, the end-of-year office party. Freelancers should look no further than Littlefield, a contemporary art space in Brooklyn. Their Sixth Annual No Office Party is the night of revelry you’ve been missing out on, which will include tasty snacks, live karaoke, a photo booth, and drink specials.

December 10th @ 10:00 am

This year’s SantaCon may be your last chance to dress as Saint Nick while raising money for important charities. In recent years this costumed pub crawl has garnered a reputation for hooliganism, but that’s unlikely to slow down the cavalcade of red and white. Follow @SantaCon on Twitter for updates on the starting location.

December 17th @ 7:00 pm

Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night clashes with traditional caroling while restoring the boombox to its former glory. Arrive beneath the archway in Washington Square, where you’ll be handed a tape or compact disc before marching in sync down New York’s streets. This trippy, dreamlike experience is one participants won’t forget anytime soon.
