Brainery-Recommended November Happenings

Posted by 29414135 tiny Becca on nov 3, 2014 under Blog Post

Here are some great events to check out this month!

Friday, November 7 - At The Incredible Game Show Showcase at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, you'll get to try out three wacky game shows.

Monday, November 10 - Buzzfeed's Jack Shepherd and Tanner Ringerud bring us Night School. It's school... at night! (We here at the Brainery are quite fond of that kind of thing.) Laught hard and learn hard from lectures on such subjects as "The Quantum Mechanics of Time Travel in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and “The Complete History of Cats on the Internet.”

Tuesday, November 11 - The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS!) presents WWI History at the Bedford. What better way to celebrate Veterans Day/Armistice Day than with a lecture on WWI's causes, wartime propaganda posters, and sex in America during the war? 

Saturday, November 22- Green-Wood Cemetery and Brooklyn Historical Society present After the Fire, a talk (free) and trolley tour (optional, $20). Learn about how the Brooklyn Theatre Fire and other tragedies shaped Brooklyn's development.

Feel free to share other must-do events in the comments below.
