Jump-Roping Jews

Don't be fooled: Golem can party
Who says Jewish Clevelanders can't party? Our report on the dismal local dating scene ["Cupid's Crisis," December 13, 2006] bemoaned the fact that the city's organized Jewish events are either romance killers — ice skating at the community center, anyone? — or magnets for the Napoleon Dynamite set. Boy, were we wrong. Saturday night at the Grog Shop, a Jewish Community Federation group is hosting an unprecedented throw down. In honor of Purim -- the holiday that actually encourages costumes and heavy drinking (yes, we are the chosen people; thanks for asking) — it's holding an eveent called Masquerade Double Dutch Extravaganza. The event will feature folk-punk band Golem and "rock extravaganza" Bling Kong, which includes four cheerleaders, three drummers, guitars, and a video DJ. The jump-rope group Double Dutch Will Take You Higher will perform. It all promises to be a very, um, sweaty time. The all-ages party starts at 9 p.m. tomorrow, and tickets -- which can be purchased from the Devil, also known as Ticketmaster -- are just $7 . So grab your 13-year-old cousin and come on down! -- Lisa Rab
