BIG TOP: Reasons to attend the Gemini & Scorpio Lost Circus event at Littlefield in the Gowanus Saturday night, in no particular order: 1) It’s a circus for grown-ups, which means no children frightened into tantrums by scary clowns. 2) There’s booze. 3) There’ll be contortionists, fire-breathers and live music by steampunk outfit the Vagabond Opera. 4) Did we mention the no children or clowns part? Saturday, .
XX FACTOR: Sarah McLachlan + Indigo Girls + Selena Gomez + Sara Breilles + Cat Power reboot Lilith Fair at the PNC Bank Arts Center, verily drowning the Garden State in folky estrogen. Lilith 2010 is Saturday, 2:30PM.
SURF’S UP: Summery cocktails (Mai Tais, Dark & Stormys and the Frozen Corona, which is exactly what it sounds like) and fusiony beach eats (shark fry tacos and l’Americain, a sandwich made of Chinese meatballs, caramelized onions, French fries and Gruyere on a baguette) land in Hell’s Kitchen at Réunion Surf Bar, which opened this week from Thomas Wilson and Eugene Ashe (formerly of Mas(farmhouse)), inspired by the French island of the same name. 630
