THURSDAY November 6

With all the love that shows like Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos get, it seems like all we want to watch are New Jersey-based gang sagas and family dramas. Helene Stapinksi’s new documentary, Five-Fingered Discount, based on her brilliant family memoir of the same name, combines both, examining her own family’s crooked history full of “swindlers, bookies, embezzlers, political “fixers” and mobster wannabes.” Stop by tonight for booze and food and to chat with the directors and producers who will be showing some footage from the archives. Those who have already donated to the Kickstarter campaign should swing by for a free drink.

405 Clinton St., 7-9:30p.m., free To Do Thursday Night: Get the Five-Finger Discount in Brooklyn
