Learn about Hanukkah and it’s traditions and design your own spinning top “dreidel” while learning the history and rules of the game. Use materials from the Found Objects section of Art, Artists & You to make a Menorah or Hanukiah for Hannukah. Also use a creative and fun method of card making to make an interactive Hanukiah revealing a new flame for every night of the holiday.
Daily through Dec 9.
Eats & Treats: Choose from salads, sandwiches, amazing healthy artisanal bread and not-so-healthy pastries at the new UWS outpost of the 100-year-old Orwasher's Bakery at Amsterdam & 81st Street. The extensive cheesecake-heavy dessert menu and charming decor lure locals to cash-only tourist trap Cafe Lalo across the street.
