Time to rummage through your closets, all you lapsed Jews, and break out those dreidels, because shit is going down at the Vagabond this Thursday night during (((Shake)))s weekly party. You thought it was all fun and games and Hebrew lessons? Think again. The Major League Dreidel Championship is gettin all Blood Sport on your Yiddish heritage, taking the wooden game piece into the 21st Century with a mano-a-mano tournament for the ages. The rules are simple: Two dreidels enter, one dreidel leaves, with the trick being to spin yours longer and stronger on increasingly smaller surfaces. Time to suppress your outer Woody Allen and get in touch with your inner Maccabee because this is war, and there can be only one Chosen One. Goyim, too, can enter, but lets be real their only shot at winning is for Best Costume. (FYI: Dr. Dre-del is already taken.) The spinogogue kicks off at 10 p.m., so dont be late. Its free to enter, but if you get to the Vagabond after 11 p.m., theres a $10 cover.
