"City Nights" finds itself at 'This Ambitious Show'

Tucked away on a side street close to Metropolitan Avenue in an industrial section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn there lies a building that goes by the name of The House of Yes. While seemingly donning a name of an everything-goes speak-easy, this spot was home to an event presented by Lady Circus and This Ambitious Orchestra on Friday night: This Ambitious Show.

One of the most enjoyable points of the night was I got “Doris Day-type parking.” That’s right… across the street. Another bonus for the venue is that you can pretty much bring in anything you want in regards to alcohol.

Yes, a lot of names came out to bring us this flawless event and that’s not counting the hosts, performers, artists, and attendees in general who all arrived dressed to the nines.
