Dave Chappelle is coming to town. Now that the beloved Chappelle Show is gone, this is your only chance to see him, so check out his standup dates. If you’re not in the Christmas spirit yet, or don’t celebrate it at all, the classic movie It’s a Wonderful Life is still a good one to watch and its on Friday night. If you sadly have a loved one in jail this holiday, it’s not too late to get them a copy of Hill Harper’s inspiring book Letters to An Incarcerated Brother. And if you’d rather just hear Beyonce, you can do so live if you’re near Brooklyn, she’s wrapping up this leg of her U.S. tour in Brooklyn this weekend. Whatever you choose to do, do it safely and have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
