Eating + Drinking

Live out your ’80s bad-boy fantasies at this Brooklyn-meets-Aspen beer fest at Five Boroughs Brewing Company. It’s a perfect après-ski-themed party—with ales from Hudson Valley Brewery, Mikkeller NYC, Threes Brewing, and dozens more—sans that bothersome skiing. Saturday, December 8; noon–7 p.m.; 215 47th Street, Sunset Park

Immersive Performance

Liminal Salon, the “site-adaptive variety show that conceives and inhabits a different world each month,” is taking you back to the ’90s during this bizarre show, promising music, comedy, and interactive elements. Saturday, December 8; 7:30 p.m.; Coco 66, 66 Greenpoint Avenue, Greenpoint
