Major League Dreidel Championships tonight

By Julie Holt on December 2, 2010


Today kicks off the second day of Hanukkah, and with it Judaism's newest (perhaps only) sporting event -- the Major League Dreidel Championships.

Tonight in Brooklyn hundreds will compete to see who can throw down the longest spinning dreidel. Competitors using names like Spindiana Jones, Goy Wonder, and Oscar de la Menorah will spin the traditional wooden top and swig Jewish-themed beer like Genesis Ale and Messiah Bold (made by Shmaltz's He'brew Beer). Drinking and dreideling... Sounds like a good time for all.

But, if you can't make it to Brooklyn, you can always swing by the Red Hot tonight for Jewbelation -- where you can also get yourself a taste of He'Brew Beer. Originally scheduled for last night, thanks to a shipping mishap Jewbelation at the Red Hot has been rescheduled for tonight. Tapping is set for 6 p.m.
