Be amazed at the Moth StorySLAM
Ten stories. Three teams of judges. One winner. The outrageously (and deservedly) popular storytelling series pits local yarn-spinners against one another, challenging them to deliver an impressive tale based on a specific topic.
The Bell House, 149 7th St, Brooklyn, 8pm, $8 (limited number), at the door $16

See some nerdy comedy at Star Trek: The Next Generation-Based Musical Improvisational Comedy
If you need a little variety in your Star Trek, then call out your favorite suggestions for a live, totally improvised musical dance performance about the starship Enterprise. Improv mavens Sloane Miller, Julia Lunetta, Susan O'Doherty and their Redshirts crew will sing, dance and phase their way through Klingon and Captain Picard minutia, leaving hard-core fans exhausted from laughing and newbies totally confused.
DiMenna Center for Classical Music, 450 W 37th St, 9pm, $7 

Get glam at the Club Monaco sample sale
