HOP TO IT: In November 1980, a pair of West Coast homebrewers took their hobby legit when the very first batch of Sierra Nevada beer made it through the brewhouse. To celebrate 30 years of glorious suds, Flatiron drinkery Rattle ’n Hum is filling every single one of their 40 taps with varieties of Sierra Nevada beers and cramming the shelves with SN bottles—including the company’s special 30th anniversary brews. 4PM on.
KEEP IT SIMPLE: Just as the crowds from Tuesday night’s tree lighting have thinned, the Real Simple Holiday Pop-Up Shop opens for business. Gift ideas from the beautiful to the practical, food tastings, and all sorts of other goodies curated by the magazine's editors will help you pare down your holiday to-do list and get in the spirit—take a peek inside via the Real Simple blog. (Besides, you can do some solid gawking at the tree while you’re at it.) 10 West 49th Street, 10AM-10PM daily from December 1.
‘KIDS’ PLAY: Two reasons to hit the screening of The Kids Are All Right at the AMC Lincoln Square tonight, hosted by the Museum of the Moving Image: One, it’s followed by a Q&A with stars Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo (what, Annette Bening’s washing her hair?), as well as brilliant writer and director Lisa Cholodenko. Two: Better see it before 2011, so you’ll have intelligent talking points on hand when it starts stockpiling awards. For real. 8PM.
