It's finally March, and we're so ready for everything happening this month!
We're conducting an experiment on the FB page for Swing House: as you know, FB suppresses all event info (including if you've signed up to receive notification on our page!), in order to get us to buy ads. Well, we'd rather donate that money to worthy non-profits. So: RSVP here https://www.facebook.com/events/275164112896163 , invite your friends, and share on your walls, and for every 20 people invited or 10 people who RSVP, we'll donate $1 to Southern Poverty Law Center, our current favorite we haven't yet donated to in 2017.
Also on our Facebook: you may have seen our insane 150-comment thread trying to find a name for our (ahem) pop-up strip club party on 3/31. If you're curious, the winning name was "Saints & Sinners." We're producing the party for our sexy sister brand House of Scorpio, not G&S, so if you want any further info on it, see here: https://www.facebook.com/events/446600772338076 (the HoS site will be updated sometime next week). You'll need to be officially approved with HoS to buy tickets.

Celebrating Pi day with...All-American PIE
Tues, 3.14 (Pi Day!), 7pm-12am, FREE / $12 for three pie servings Gemini & Scorpio Loft, must RSVP for Gowanus, BK address
Reserve your pie (limited): http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2885761 Details & RSVP: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/658372441037089 Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio
We tend to think of pie as a standard, round, applie-filled thing...and we tend to think of America(ns) in the same kind of generic way. But as this proud passport-holding Russian Jew refugee can tell you, "Americans" really come from all over the world, and our pies do, too. And nothing brings people together better than food.
We want to celebrate Pi Day with as many international versions of pie as we can get, from YOUR cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Who wants to bake (or buy) a pie of their heritage, whatever that may look & taste like (sweet, savory, any shape)? We'd love for you to be the first to get tastes of everyone else's pies, and then present and serve your pie to other guests. Message us!
Our historical chef, Rebecca Silverman, will bring something extra special Anna Cole - English mince pie
Angela Mauri - Italian chocolate salami Evan Morgenstern - Ukrainian pennik with apricots Jaclyn Atkinson - French-incpired espressio silk pie Jennifer Glick - German/Jewish plum pie (Zwetschgenkuchen) Nadia Rohrs - Greek feta tart
For anyone who can't contribute a pie, you can buy a $12 ticket for three servings of others' pies instead. Advance sales recommended, as pie availability is limited. We're hoping to donate a portion of sales & otherwise collect money for Southern Poverty Law Center -- TBC depending on how much we can bring in. If you don't want pie, come on by for free for drinks & conversation.

WEEKEND + WEEK
FILM: Body Politics: To Be Twenty
http://www.nitehawkcinema.com/movie/to-be-twenty/ Nitehawk Naughties 2017 program, Body Politics, presents a corporeal selection of Italian films (1964-1980) that position sexuality in terms of politics. Better known for his crime movies, Fernando Di Leos To Be Twenty (Avere VentAnni) takes the sexuality inherent to all his films and puts it at the core of the story. Twenty, beautiful, sexy and liberated, and fed up with their provincial lives, Lia and Tina decide to hitchhike their way to Rome to find a commune where they can stay and live the life of free love or so they think. Things dont go as they have planned and soon they become involved in prostitution, the police and an aggressive gang which all culminates with a brutal and unexpected violent end. Part of the censoring of many Italian films of the 1960s and 1970s that showed sex and politics on screen. (Fri/Sat, Nighthawk Cinema, 136 Metropolis Ave, BK, 12:10am, $12)

PUPPETS: Jim Henson Foundation Now Accepting Letters of Intent for 2018 Granting Cycle - Deadline: 3/13 http://hensonfoundation.org/index.php/grant-application/guidelines The Jim Henson Foundation awards grants each year for the creation and development of innovative works of puppet theater. Production Grants of $7,000 are awarded for the production of new works ready to be presented in the coming year. Workshop Grants of $3,000 are for the development and workshopping of these pieces. Workshop Grants and Production Grants can be combined over a two year period for the greatest benefit to the piece; keep in mind, however, that a Production Grant does not need to be proceeded by a Workshop grant and a Workshop Grant in no way ensures a future Production Grant. Grants are made only for the development of new works of live puppet theater. The Foundation does not award funds for the presentation or remounting of existing work. Awards can be made only to IRS tax-exempt organizations. See site for details.
