Celebrate Purim, the Jewish Halloween-like holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people from annihilation in the ancient Persian Empire, with music by The Sway Machinery, featuring members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Antibalas, Balkan Beat Box and Arcade Fire and DJ Joro Boro. So put on your dancing shoes and a costume for this one. If you’ve never been to Minca for dinner, go right now! This small noodle bar makes some amazing ramen noodles from scratch. Try the Minca Ramen, a mild broth with pork, chicken & dried seafood ($8.50). One of the newer bars in the East Village, Common Ground has a dark wood interior, a relaxed atmosphere, and excellent cocktails like the Blueberry Pie. If you like pastries filled with cream, check out Beard Papa Sweets Café. They offer cream fillings like earl grey, green tea, coffee, and the standard vanilla, chocolate, strawberry among others.
