When their attempts to seduce her fail, they set off to the ocean, determined to shoot her down.

5:00 – 6:00pm Upstairs: Tired of hearing about the conservative Tea Party? Well, there’s an alternative. Living Liberally has been hosting social political events at The Tank since 2003 — and for The Tank’s anniversary will be hosting its own Tea Party…as Laughing Liberally comedians discuss the news of the day with Reading Liberally authors, Drinking Liberally activists and tea party snacks and iced tea…because at this tea party cooler heads prevail.

7:30pm – 9:00pm Downstairs: It’s back to back comedy insanity with two of our favorite regular comedy teams!

7:30 – 9:00pm Upstairs: Tank Sustainer Reception. Join special guests Alex Timbers, Tank founder, writer-director of Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson, and up-coming Broadway director for drinks, hors d’ouevres, and a discussion about why NYC’s performing arts needs spaces like The Tank, followed by performances by Immediate Medium. **Please note: Tickets for The Tank Sustainer Reception are $70.00 and include entrance to all performances and the Tank Karaoke Birthday Party.**

9:00pm – Midnight Downstairs: Brought back by popular demand from our St. Purim’s Day party, TANK KARAOKE BIRTHDAY PARTY! Have a slice of cake, grab a beer (or three) and a microphone and get yourself up on The Tank stage while we sing, dance, drink and laugh ourselves into the wee hours.
