It’s December 25th, and it’s my first Christmas in the city. My brother is in town visiting since our parents are out of the country. As such, we’ve been attempting (and failing) at trying to experience a very New York City Christmas. Instead, we spent Christmas Eve eating Cuban food in the West Village, then drinking beers, playing pool/shuffleboard/Scrabble/listening to live jazz (Eddie Wyatt) at Fat Cat. Today, we went to go 92Y Tribeca for Chinese and a Movie – a Leslie Nielsen double header of Airplane and Naked Gun, complete with a Chinese food buffet. No one told me it was going to be vegetarian, and for that, I would dock the experience at least a bit. Still, Shirley, you can’t go wrong with the classics.

Tonight, we’re cooking at home before heading out to Merry James-mas! at Nublu (62 Ave C between 4th and 5th Sts; nublu.net; 10pm, $10) on Avenue C to celebrate and remember James Brown, who passed four years ago today. According to Time Out NY, every year since that sad day DJ Nickodemus (from Turntables on the Hudson) has hosted a James Brown Christmas tribute. Nickodemus will rework James Brown classics against the backdrop of timeless J.B. videos. The Pimps of Joytime will also perform live. Covers, classics, mashups, Funky People 45’s, The JB’s, videos & all things that’ll get you on the GOOD FOOT! In Funk We Trust! $10/ 21 & over.
