Spoons, Toons & Booze

According the Nitehawk, the only thing missing from your weekend morning cartoons and cereal is booze. Compete in short contests with other cartoon-goers to decide which cartoon, out of 80 from the ’30s to the ’90s, you want to watch. Your price for admission covers an all-you-can-eat cereal bar, replete with marshmallows, chocolate, and sugar poorly disguised as nutrition. And of course, choose drinks from a special selection of cocktails, or if you’re feeling bold, drop a shot of Baileys or Kahlua in your cereal.

It’s not all that often that church pews double as theater aisles at The Bowery Mission’s Lower East Side Chapel but that’s what happened today, as local homeless men sought refuge from the single-digit temperatures.

Staffers set the thermostat above 70 degrees and unspooled a projection screen to show DVDs of The Bible, a 10-part miniseries that aired on the History channel last March. (The Blind Side was screened during a previous film session.) A few dozen men wearing hooded sweatshirts and nylon jackets watched stories of Jesus, Moses and Sampson before a backdrop of Christmas tree garland and organ pipes.
