Chanukah Night @ Circle Bar

We’re midway through Hanukkah, how about celebrating with a Jewish-themed singer/songwriter night at the Circle Bar? I’ve got my fingers crossed for some Leonard Cohen covers.

Speaking of enormously talented Canadian Jews, I’ve been listening to the audio version of David Rakoff‘s new book Half Empty. It’s great, especially read by the author. In fact, the other night I was listening to his essay about going on a book tour in Germany as I was trimming my Christmas tree. ‘Cause I’m like that.

Anyway, back to tonight. Here’s what the organizers have to say about it:

This year Chanukah runs from Dec. 2nd through Dec. 9th, so to celebrate the commemoration, Josh Wexler has assembled (mostly) jewish musicians, playing songs written (mostly) by jews, and plenty of jew jokes.
