Now that the shock of school starting–and the return of college students–has worn off, isn’t it about time you returned to your normal routine? We hope that includes going out at least one night this week, possibly to one of these unique events:
Monday Night Football, Tavern 29, 47 East 29th Street, Monday, 6 p.m.
Football fans bummed about “Sunday Funday” being over can celebrate the first Monday night game of the season with 50 cent wings and Sixpoint beers, which will be featured by way of a special flight of four fall beers–one for every quarter if you like drinking games–plus a pint of your choosing. The tavern will showcase some of the brewery’s newer offerings like the Mad Scientist #14 Graetzer.
Farmworkers: In the Borderlands of Food Justice, Haven’s Kitchen, 109 West 17th Street, Tuesday, 8 p.m.
New Yorkers love to celebrate what’s on their plates, but we rarely have such an overt chance to reflect on the people who make those dishes possible. Celebrating the Justice for Farmworkers Campaign,Rural & Migrant Ministry hosts an evening of activism with food, drink, and live music by local New York band Tyson. The event will feature a silent auction as well as keynote speaker Sanjay Rawal, whose film Food Chains calls attention to farm workers rights. Tickets are $75 and include one complimentary drink.
War Correspondents at The Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery, 79 North 11th Street, Brooklyn, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.
On the twelfth anniversary of September 11, war correspondent C.J. Chivers and Steve Hindy–a former Middle East correspondent and co-owner of Brooklyn Brewery–will speak about the 2001 day that changed everything as well as current conflicts in the Middle East. Tickets are $25 and include one complimentary beer; all proceeds go to support the efforts of Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC).
