To Do Saturday: Up by the Bootstraps

killing them softly poster header To Do Saturday: Up by the BootstrapsFor those whose favorite holiday movie is Eyes Wide Shut (hey, it all goes down right around Christmastime), the Bootstrap Project, a nonprofit promoting the sustainable trade of artisanal crafts, has just the event for you; tonight’s its Holiday Masquerade, a cocktail party where masks (the more elaborate the better) are de rigueur … Meanwhile, those interested in a slightly less festive sort of mistaken identity should go see the just-opened crime thriller Killing Them Softly, in which sensitive Chanel spokes-hunk Brad Pitt pretends to be a cold-blooded mercenary. Surely it’ll be almost as terrifying as his perfume ads that we’ve been putting on mute for a month!

Eyes Wide Shut Holiday Masquerade, The Wooly, 11 Barclay Street, 9pm to 2am, with open bar until 10:30pm, tickets and information can be found at tinyurl.com/8dayDecember1; Killing Them Softly is in theaters now.
