What You're Doing Today 12/6, Saturday Edition

Shop for one-of-a-kind Etsy gifts at the Knitting Factory, indulge your love of beer, and more

HOPPED UP: A group of Americans trains hard to out-guzzle Germans at the super-competitive Beerfest in Jay Chandrasekhar's movie of the same name, screening tonight as part of 92Y Tribeca's series Swig: Top Shelf Film with Drinks to Match. After the movie, sample some of the microbrews on hand. 9PM.

CRAFTY: The {NewNew} York Etsy Street team -- 30 sellers from Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade wares-- will bust out their merch (jewelry, graphic tees, pretty paper goods) for Handmade Cavalcade, a one-day shopathon at the Knitting Factory. 10AM-5PM.

FACTORY-MADE: In what The Village Voice calls "the most desultory rock doc ever made," Andy Warhol films members of The Velvet Underground -- including Nico's son Ari -- rehearsing for one of their shows as the Factory's in-house band. The eponymous 1966 cult classic about the band screens tonight as part of MoMA's Looking at Music series. 6PM.

DEE LIGHT: 'Tis the season for guilty pleasures -- and if you can't enjoy Twisted Sister bringing a full show of axe-shredding holiday tunes to the Broadway stage, you've lost the true meaning of Christmas. Dee Snyder heads up A Twisted Christmas on Broadway! at the Nokia Theatre Times Square at 7:30PM.
