New York City Event Calendar: The Best Things to Do This Month

Renegade San Francisco / Renegade Craft Fair / San Francisco, CA

  • Learn the real "story of tonight" on this Hamilton-themed walking tour in NYC's oldest neighborhood. Drink at the last tavern Hamilton visited, pay your respects at his grave, and revel in all the real-life details about your favorite founding father.

  • Tired of waiting for a seat at that buzzworthy Manhattan speakeasy? Get ready for the VIP experience instead. Skip the lines, sip exclusive cocktails, and explore Midtown's mysterious Prohibition-era history on this evening bar tour.

  • Get the neon sign look with a lot less work at this LED sign-making class. You'll sip wine and sway to good tunes as you design and execute an eco-friendly LED sign in just a few fun-filled hours.

  • Learn how to host the perfect pizza party from your petite NYC kitchen at this crispy Neapolitan pizza class. You'll make homemade pizza dough, tomato and white sauces, and even a dessert pizza. You'll leave happy and with the skills to make your own varieties at home.

  • RSVP and line up early for this first-come, first-served concert — and be prepared to dance. You'll find out firsthand why this first-generation New Yorker quartet calls their psychedelic, cumbia-inspired music "tropical futurism."

  • Seven local black-owned shops will pop up at this Midtown holiday market with distinctive seasonal gifts for everyone on your list. Bring cash and get your shopping done early.

  • Bring a friend or make a few new ones at this beginner-friendly pizza making class, where you'll join up in teams and learn how to make the ideal crust, select incredible produce, and top it with perfect proportions.

  • Looking to brighten up date night? Bring your partner or friend to this clothing-optional body painting class, where you'll adorn each other with neon paint as you glow under the UV lights.

  • Remember your annual elementary school book fair, where there was nothing better than picking out new books with no distractions? Rediscover the magic! Enjoy giveaways, trivia, a photo booth, crafts, and more fun throwback activities — all at the first-ever grown-up book fair.

  • "Le Scandal" is NYC's longest-running variety burlesque show — and with good reason. Win fun prizes during the interactive quiz as you watch exciting performers: a sword-swallowing belly dancer, a lasso-trick cowboy, a striptease trapeze artist, and more sensual variety acts.

  • If you go to a party and don't Instagram it, did it really happen? Get ready to find out. For one night only, House of Yes turns into the "House of No." No phones, no photos, no BS. The point of this dance party is to dance, and we're here for it.

  • This eclectic dance party brings all aspects of Afro-Caribbean culture together for a night of live performances, fabulous dancers, and rad DJs playing dancehall, afrobeat, and reggaeton jams. Join the family and get ready to go all out.

  • Wear all the colors to this explosive Brazilian dance party with stage contests, guest performances, and music pumping until 4 AM. What better way to celebrate the night before Thanksgiving?

  • Drag yourself out of that turkey coma and head to O.P.P.A. for a drink, a bite, and a free comedy show. Watch performers from Comedy Central, "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," and more.

  • Get ready to sing along and celebrate The Boss at "The Bruce Show," a tribute to Bruce Springsteen by North Jersey musician, Mike Rocket.

  • Pour some bubbly and join self-proclaimed bag lady, Julie Mollo, at this surprisingly safe-for-work Babeland event. You'll work together to embellish a one-of-a-kind clutch with all of your favorite things.

  • New York City's best — and only — comedy and pole dancing show is now in its sixth year. This month's musical theme is Pink Floyd, where award-winning athletes will take the pole for the entire "Dark Side of The Moon" album while comics tell jokes.
