5 Things: The Moth Story Slam at The Bell House

Plus, Momofuku baking classes, Wishing Tree art exhibits, and financial advice for Sandy victims.


1. Listen to some yarns. The Moth, an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling, will host its acclaimed even series Story Slam at The Bell House tonight. "Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience," states the group's web site. 8 p.m., 149 7th Street, $8.

2. Learn how to bake like a crackhead. This month, Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar fame, will be sharing the secrets to her cult-creating compost cookies, crack pies and cake truffles at a series of classes held at her kitchen in Williamsburg. Registration is open, dates include Feb. 14, 20, 26 and Mar 5. $50 per class. 

3. Make a wish. Abby Goodman’s latest solo exhibition, “The Wishing Tree,” transforms the Brooklyn Arts Council Gallery into a tree shrine. "Wishing trees are sacred places found all over the world where people are invited to attach prayers onto the branches of sacred trees in hopes that their wishes will be answered," describes the Council's website. Visitors are invited to participate by attaching their wishes to the overhanging branches. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 55 Washington Street, between Front and Water Streets.

4. Get help recovering post Sandy. The New York Chapter of the Financial Planning Association® is offering free financial counseling workshops to those impacted by Superstorm Sandy. Advice will be individual and can relate to impacted residents or businesses. 6 p.m. Brooklyn Public Library, free.

5. Move the car. Alternate side parking rules are in effect today. The next suspension is Sun., Feb. 10 for the Asian Lunar New Year.
