While our Christian brethren are stuck at home watching a flaming log on television with their extended families, Jews get the city all to themselves on Christmas Eve. New York abounds with opportunities to get wasted, slutty, and desperate with other Semites, all under the guise of trying to snag a Jewish partner to bring home to Mom. If drunk and pasty Hasidic men are your type, do not miss Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad, a variety show that draws loud-mouthed funny girls to the stage and bearded and cloaked Williamsburgers (no, that's not a new type of hipster) to the audience. Scouting either crowd for a date could yield great results—it's like a Yenta for the 21st century.
