Happy Purim 2010! Special Jerusalem Festivities!

It’s time to put on your gigantic over-sized sunglasses, afro wig, fairy wings, cape or whatever it is that you’re planning for this Purim and start searching for the perfect place to hang out this Purim of 2010! My friend asked me to share a special Purim event this year in Jerusalem. For a full guide to Purim 2010 in Jerusalem, check out The Jerusalem Blueprint.

Special Guest Writer Nava Rosenbloom:

Purim is a time to flip things around, so do something a bit different this Year! Cafe Alexander is hosting a Megilla reading followed by a Purim party featuring the vivacious, soulful rock of Optimystical. Get all your Purim drinking, partying, grooving and costuming done with a classy ambiance.

There’s a bar, delicious food and indoor/outdoor seating. And if you think you have the most creative costume this year, Cafe Alexander will give you a 75 shekel credit at the cafe if they think you’re right.

    The year of the first Gulf War I took the rounds of hamantasch dough, put the filling in a straight line, rolled them into a cylinder, bent the ends, and called them Saddam’s mustache.
