Every month, hosts Betsy Kenney and Dara Katz round up some of their favorite performers for a comedy variety show about radically not caring what people think of you… for the night.  So come down to The Mockingbird, (below Avenida) and order up some tacos and a margarita.
*TICKETS*
$7 in advance / $9 at door (Doors at 7:30PM)

February lineup:
Tim Baltz (The Opposition with Jordan Klepper)
Friends Who Folk (The New Yorker)
Marcia Belsky (Handmaid’s Tale the Musical)

Have you heard?

No sign in the sky will tell you where The Mockingbird is nested. Just look for the silhouette on the door in the underbelly of New York’s indelible East Village.

Through that door lays an eclectic bar and lounge serving up tequila-centric cocktails with the gritty swank of a classic Manhattan speakeasy. Built by the hands of local artists, The Mockingbird provides a cozy, yet untamed atmosphere suited for every occasion, from first dates to birthday parties to private events.
