O, Earth

One of the loveliest things—in an absolute avalanche of lovely things—about Casey Llewellyn's wide-ranging piece is her title. In calling it O, Earth, Llewellyn quotes from the end of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, when Emily's overwhelmed spirit exclaims, “Oh, earth, you're too wonderful for anybody to realize you.” This is not so surprising; Llewellyn's postmodern pop threnody takes Wilder's masterpiece as its matter and prime mover. But the playwright also reflects the fragment through a prism.

Hot Chocolate Festival

Regress to childhood with skillfully concocted mugs of hot chocolate courtesy of this downtown canteen. Owner-mastermind Maury Rubin will serve a different flavor of his intoxicating cocoa every day during February. The lineup won’t be announced until late January but previous year’s highlights included Earl Grey Tea hot chocolate, a delicate blend with notes of bergamot, and Sunken Treasure, an indulgent cup with submerged caramel coins and chocolate truffles. Be sure to show up on Jan 31 for the opening-night party.

The Beach Boys

Expect Asser Levy to be crowded with moms, dads, kids, most of Animal Collective and so on, to see the Beach Boys run through their summer hits—though it's worth pointing out that after touring with Brian Wilson for its 50th anniversary in 2012, the group is back to a Wilson-less lineup. Nonetheless, it's a respectable showing of core fellas, led by founding member Mike Love and longtime player Bruce Johnston.

Is there a Takashi Murakami exhibit going on or something? Why is it the feature image?

Do TimeOut's 'undateables' include any senior citizens?   I haven't seen any, but maybe I missed something.    If you haven't featured any yet, it would be great to see some soon.   There are plenty of us around, and many of us are single.  And please - by senior citizens, I mean those of us who have actually passed our 65th birthdays.  Far too often, those in their 20's think of anyone over 40 as a senior.

As someone who is the same age as your guest editor, Susan Sarandon, I see a distinct lack of attention paid to the social needs of those in my decade of life who are not celebrities.   It would be great to see that change. Thanks!

I have a complaint: I'm an avid reader of the "Undateable" section in Time Out, where Time Out sets up two strangers on a date. Well, last week's article featured a boy who wrote extremely cruel things about his date. I understand you want people to be honest, but I can hardly support someone ripping their date to shreds publicly.
