FRIDAY 01.26.07

WHAT: Point Break Live
WHEN: 8:00PM
WHERE: La Tea Theatre, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street
WHY YOU SHOULD GO: The absurd live staging of the Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves cult-classic surf-cum-skydiving thriller made its Manhattan debut earlier this week after a successful run in Brooklyn. As a kid tell’s Reeves’ “Johnny Utah” early in the film, “Surfing’s a source — it’ll change your life.” Brah.
NOTE: Also Saturday.

SATURDAY 01.27.07

WHAT: Idiotarod
WHEN: 1:00PM
WHERE: McCarren Park, Southwest corner, Brooklyn
WHY YOU SHOULD GO: Part race, part parade, part retarded, the fourth running of the Idiotarod &#151 a thousand New Yorkers braving the bitter Brooklyn cold in customized shopping carts in the name of idiocy — is as much spectacle as you’re gonna get a week before the Super Bowl.
