There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
This one time, at Hebrew school, there was this incident with a dreidel and… Kidding! Of course I wouldn’t do that sort of thing. I’m a nice Jewish boy. It was really a menorah. Maybe there were some hamantaschen involved, too—it’s hard to remember when you’re so loaded up on Manischewitz. There’s probably a Yiddish word for all you goyim who think religious school is a bore and Members of the Tribe are just strait-laced latke-heads. But rather than simply call you some name, I’ll offer more constructive advice: Check out Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad. This isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill cabaret show—you know, shiksas in crucifix pasties eating ham sandwiches smothered in mayo. Rather, along with the expected bawdy comedy stylings, NJGGB features JAPs doing yoga demonstrations and Hasidic strippers. That’s right, Hasidic strippers. I guess we’ll never be able to shake that stereotype. See the girls tell it like it is at 8 and 10 p.m. at the Warehouse Theater, 1021 7th St. NW. $15. (202) 783-3933. (Josh Levin)
