The Little Top Circus & Medicine Show
Where/When: Union Hall, 702 Union St, Saturday, Dec. 22 at 8 p.m.
Why Go: This is the end of days and that rumble in the distance is the wagons of The Little Top Circus & Medicine Show, rolling into town to save your sad sinner's soul. Led by the evangelically infamous Good Reverend Doctor Professor Elucius Clay, this sideshow of cautionary tales will horrify (watch as Stitch the Geek mutilates his own flesh!), flummox (recoil at Bobby Phobia's feats of physiology), and titillify (surrender to the undulant charms of Cherry Delight, reigning Miss Coney Island!) all to the blood-stirring music of Ratty Mousebites, Miz E and Papa Nicki of The Hot Sardines.
Santa Claus is Coming to Brooklyn!!
Where/When: 274 4th Ave, Sunday, Dec. 23 at 11 a.m.
Why Go: Santa Claus is Coming to brunch with the Brooklyn Rock Stars of Garfield’s! Take photos with Santa (for only a small fee), come in for brunch and enjoy arts and crafts and face painting.
