Well, here it is, the final night in New York before Thanksgiving. Things are a little sleepy out there, what with people freeing their employees to either go back to their faraway homes or just drink in their nearby homes with friends. If you don’t want to do either of those though, the Brokelyn Events Calendar is here for you, as usual, with some cool stuff to do. Just one more thing to be thankful for.

Seeing as how it’s Thanksgiving and the holiday season in general, you might be feeling a little nostalgic. In that case, you can get your fill of the past and what might have been and maybe even dwell on some regrets at Pizza Party’s Black Wedding dance party. There, three DJs will gide you through a soundscape full of slow jams, New Jack Swing, R&B, 80s hip hop and other throwback jams. Try not to get so lost in a fog of your own memories you forget to dance.
9pm, Pizza Party, 254 Irving Avenue, Bushwick, FREE

As the old saying we all love to know goes, there’s more then one way to have a dance party. You might think of Tiki Disco as more of a summer thing, but their wild, unhinged party is now free of seasonal bonds and will help keep you warm in the fall chill (just pretend it’s cold out there). Plus, not only can you dance, you can also start your overeating one day early by getting a ticket that comes with a plate of fried chicken and two sides.
10pm, Sugar Hill Supper Club, 609 Dekalb Avenue, Bed-Stuy, $20 – $40

As the even older saying goes, there are exactly three ways to throw a dance party. This one here is different from the Tiki Disco party because there are more performers, it’s a little bit cheaper and there’s also a canned food and clothing drive, as it’s the season to remember the less fortunate. So there are your three dance parties for the evening, which should all help you get a little movement in before eating pie and meat and starch for three days straight and not moving otherwise.
9pm, C’mon Everybody, 325 Franklin Avenue, Bed-Stuy, Free before 10pm, $10 after

You might not be in the mood for a crazy dance party tonight though. In which case, how about something a little more laid back, like a relaxed potluck with free pizza from Two Boots, a few musical performances and even an open invitation for you to bring your guitar or harmonica or whatever you play and entertain the audience with some tunes.
7pm, Muchmore’s, 2 Havemeyer Street, Williamsburg, FREE

Planning on your traditional pre-Thanksgiving binge onĀ Twin Peaks? Why do it alone when you can head to Videology and do it with a slew of other obsessive as you all patiently wait for things like coffee and pie and the Log Lady to show up so you can mark it off on a bingo card. Hell, maybe you’ll even make some new friends who’ll invite you to a better Thanksgiving than the one you were previously going to go to.
9pm, Videology, 308 Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, FREE
