It’s not just a cliché: The Chinese-food industry is sponsored, in part, by the Jews of New York. And pork ribs always taste better on the day Jesus was born. Being that 92Y Tribeca is run by a Jewish organization, the all-you-can-eat buffet at tonight’s Chinese & a Movie could very well be kosher and pareve. (And veggie lo mein is still chock-full of MSG goodness.) Tonight’s screening—as if we needed a reason to get together and eat—is a Monty Python double feature: Life of Brian and The Holy Grail. Wait, two movies for the price of one, and you don’t even need a coupon? It really is Christmas!
