Music & Entertainment
Friday, December 14th – Movie release day. Quiet night tonight? Check out these two flicks to kick your Christmas break off on the right foot! Judd Apatow returns with the semi-sequel to the smash hit, “Knocked Up” with, “This Is 40″ (R). This time out we follow Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd’s characters as the comically come to grips with growing older. On a more serious note, Academy Award winning director, Kathryn Bigelow returns to form with, “Zero Dark Thirty” (R). This powerful film boldly sets out to show viewers exactly how we got Osama Bin Laden.
Friday, December 21st – Saturday, December 22nd – It’s, “The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice!” If that snark filled title doesn’t grab you how bout the fact that this entire weekend of shows is completely sold out.

Friday, December 21st – Was the Mayan calendar right? If so then no one is reading this. But in any case head to Brooklyn infamous Cameo Gallery for the, “Apocalypse Party!” Join DJs Joakim and Jacques Renault as they hold down the fort for this end of the world party! (Cameo Gallery)
