PLAN DATE: MON / MAY 27
Celebrate all things queer tonight at the Queers N Peers Variety Show—a monthly variety benefit that showcases LGBTQ artists and allies in different performance disciplines—think everything from comedy to drag and beyond. Hosted by Cassidy Dawn Graves and Comrade Barbie, this show promises to be all kinds of fabulous; it’s time spent well too—it raises money for two organizations per month centered on queer and trans rights and socioeconomic justice. Tonight’s show features comedians, burlesque performers, and musicians. We’re excited.
You’re going to need your energy for what’s coming—fuel up at Newtown, a small vegetarian Israeli spot in East Williamsburg. They’re all about “good, clean, everyday food,” so you know this will be a meal to remember. Although it has an understated entrance (blink and you might miss it), the inside is homey with old-time photos lining the walls and antiques woven in through the space. It’s the perfectly intimate start to an exciting night.
