The Salonukah Menorah by Ian Trask

For the first time in over a century, Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah happen to fall on the same day–an occurrence that isn’t predicted to repeat itself for another 70,000-80,000 years give or take. This makes Thanksgivukkuah, as Nov. 28 has come to be known, kind of like the Halley’s Comet of holiday traditions. While Thanksgiving might be one and done, Hanukkah continues on until Dec. 5, and to celebrate the Festival of Lights this year, local artists are throwing an art party set to last eight crazy nights. Salonukah starts Nov. 29 at Recession Art in Cobble Hill. Expect a week’s worth of multimedia, interdisciplinary art programming and parties, featuring everything from fashion and jewelry exhibits to film screenings and literary discussions, as well as lighting a Menorah made of trash by artist Ian Trask and plenty of He’Brews from Schmaltz Brewing Co.
