  • Brief Mention: No Pants Subway Ride
    It's once again that time of year to either remove your pants on the train, or simply gawk and stare at the pantsless riders.
    Remember: You're only supposed to remove your pants. This ain't SantaCon.
    Sun 3p. Various locations. Info here.

  • New Standards: Winter Jazz Fest 2014
    Catch the tail end of this five-day fest of all things jazz, with both big names and awesome new talent.
