Ways to End the Year

Last call to support MUG in 2019… And we'll be on a break until the week of January 6. Happiest of holidays to you.

Revel in a nicer world when Little Women, adapted and directed by Greta Gerwig, opens on Christmas day.

Acquire the The 2019 Annual by Joe Holmes, a book with a selection of more than 40 of Mr. Holmes' incomparable images. ($20). For an additional $40, you'll get a signed, limited-edition of one of two prints.

Lighten the mood with the first four episodes from the current season of Would I Lie, the most reliable place for laughs we know of anywhere. Available on Britbox as well as YouTube.

Wonder at the NYBG's Holiday Train Show.

Contemplate the coming year or simply be where you are with a guided meditation on New Year's eve at the Kadampa Meditation Center.

Succumb to the irresistible charms of Alsace at the Strasbourg-Alsace Christmas Market through December 22 at Bowling Green.

Enjoy Dar Williams playing The Bell House, December 29, by now a season tradition.

Walk with The Big Onion's 28th Annual Christmas Day Jewish Lower East Side Tour.

Introduce a youngster to The Nutcracker.

Technically you're starting the new year with this one, but anyway: listen up as The Poetry Project hosts the 46th Annual New Year's Day Marathon Reading.

End the year/start the year with a healthy run.

Rock the abracadabra at the Neil Simon, through January 5, where The Illusionists deploy some nifty magic.

Pump the brakes even before the holiday feasts with Dr. Michael Greger's just released How Not to Diet (following up his NY Times bestselling book on health, How Not to Die). This one is the most comprehensive and sensible book on how to lose weight we've ever read.
