MAKE ME A MATCH
Its New Years Eves Eve and youre Jewish single, and still dont have a date for the big party tomorrow. Have no feartonight, comedian Helen Hong hosts Mensch Match, a comedy show/singles mixer based on the Korean practice of booking, which involves waiters coercing strangers to sit together for a drink. The New York version spices it up with comedians (both Jewish and Goy) acting as the matchmakers after performing their routines. If this doesnt sound like a surefire way to meet Mr. or Ms. Right (or just a last-minute date), Union Hall is also holding an I Heart Nerds speed-dating night on December 29which we guess is for those who want to spend New Years Eve holding hands while reading a book. Mensch Match Wednesday, December 30, at 8, Comix, 353 West 14th Street, 212-254-2500, comixny.com, $15$20; I Heart Nerds Tuesday, December 29, at 7:30, Union Hall, 702 Union Street, Brooklyn, 718-638-4400, unionhallny.com, free
