Please join us for the next installment of “Talk Show” hosted by David Levine. Dedicated to exploring professions whose intricacies are often wondered at but rarely explored, “Talk Show” uses the typical broadcast format—interviewer, monologue, special guests—to explore the atypical topic of the world of work. Other variations on the form include: no actual broadcast, questions from the audience, and a sideman [sic] who mixes cocktails.

This installment of “Talk Show” at Cabinet will feature taxidermist John Youngaitis, professional Santa Claus Frank Pascuzzi, and a storefront psychic, as well as a slide presentation by Nikki Columbus on “interspecies animal friendships.”

Each installment will also include a brand-new complimentary cocktail invented by sideman [sic] and master mixologist Eben Klemm, and a naming contest for said cocktail.
