To Do This Weekend: Purim!
Though it supposedly has holy roots, the Jewish holiday of Purim has also been expertly distilled into the perfect excuse to party. Purim party tradition includes dressing up Halloween-style, gorging on hamantaschen, and getting crazy drunk. The religious component comes in when you pray to keep the hamantaschen down and not wake up with a brutal hangover.
So where should you celebrate over the weekend? Chabad of San Francisco's annual Purimpalooza ($20) takes place this Sunday, March 4, at 12 Galaxies. Chabad of Bucktown/Wicker Park in Chicago beckons "Hassids and hipsters" to Wicker Purim this Saturday at AllRise Art Gallery ($12 if you wear a costume), while in New York City, Heeb sponsors a karaoke party at Lit ($5). Unfortunately for Londoners, it doesn't seem that the infamous PunkPurim (pictured above) by Jewdas will be returning this year.
