Head Games

We started the week off with Brain Food, so it seems fitting to cap it off with Head Games.

The Wall in My Head is a new anthology of works (out next week) by writers and artists on the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. There will be a reading and discussion of the current relevance of those events next Tuesday, November 10th, 7pm, at Idlewild Books, 12 W. 19th [5th/6th] 212.414.8888. Reserve.

The A**hole in My Head is an encore run of Kate Dawson's sharply funny one-woman show about her dreams of a Broadway career (realized to a large extent) that were constantly undermined by an inner voice. Catch the show this Monday, November 9th, 7pm (as well as 11/13, 9:15pm and 11/15, 8pm), at the Triad, 158 W. 72nd [Bway/Col] 212.362.2590. $20.

You may have been keeping your distance from head cheese all these years; now's your chance to find out what you've been missing. The place: DBGB (if you're not going to trust Daniel Boulud, who would you trust?), the goods: Charcutier Gilles Verot's world-famous-in-France chilled pig's head terrine.

[Not safe for work:] It's probably best if we leave it up to you to determine the head games involved in the scenes latch-hooked on Dirty Pillowz. Suffice it to say that they'd probably be of particular interest to gay men. The pillows are made in Brooklyn, sold on Etsy, and as our tipster notes, they're a perfect gift for the 'guy who enjoys both 70s crafts and 70s porn.'

A fun quiz – how many Go to the Head of the Class questions can you answer?
