So the Ravens beat the 49ers. Did you watch? Were you happy with the outcome? Maybe you can tell a story about it at the Moth tonight, or come up with some sports-inspired puns at Punderdome. Or you could just go to any of these local weeknight events and not think about athletics at all.
Monday, February 4: The Moth brings StorySlam to the Bell House tonight. The live and interactive event has storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth “hat” at entry and those picked will be given five minutes to tell a story corresponding with the night’s theme (tonight: Clumsy). The ten featured stories are scored by judges selected from the audience.
149 7th Street between 2nd & 3rd Avenues; 8:00 p.m. (7:30 doors); $8 at door, presale tickets have sold out.
Tuesday, February 5: It’s time for Punderdome! Everyone’s favorite pun competition is back at Littlefield for this month’s installment, with celebrity guest judges Jason Zinoman (comedy critic for the New York Times) and Charlie Todd (founder of Improv Everywhere). Stop by for a verified good time.
622 Degraw Street between 3rd & 4th Avenues, 8:00 p.m. (7:30 doors), $6 tickets available here.
Wednesday, February 6: Stop by Uncle Barry’s to check out their weekly trivia night. Grab some friends (maximum five to a team) and try for first place and the $50 bar tab prize. While you’re there, warm up with their Hot Apple Cider, made with pumpkin spice and your choice of bourbon or rum.
