Guide to what’s happening in New York this week

Wines from a tap? Yes, please. The Barrell Room, located inside the City Winery, is a unique, 30-seat restaurant featuring 11 wines by the tap, straight from the barrel, all made in-house by master winemaker David Lecomte — no bottles or corks allowed. A new menu, inspired by their tap wine, has been crafted by chef Andres Barrera. Try it out for yourself — it just opened Thursday. 155 Varick St., 
212-608-0555, www.citywinery.com.

Theater

“Eightythree Down”
Through Sept. 17, Under St. Marks, 94 St. Marks Place, $18
On New Year’s Eve 1983, quiet homebody Martin gets a surprising and riotous visit from his eccentric friend Dina — with a maniacal boyfriend, a gay British punk rocker, and a gun in tow. The four-person cast of “Eightythree Down” strikes the right balance between volatile hysteria and emotional realism.

Food

Wine Tasting: Italy 101
Friday, 6:30-8:30 p.m., The Brooklyn Kitchen, 100 Frost St., $65
Never freeze up before a wine list again. Learn the varietals from each of Italy’s six wine regions. Leading you is oenophile and viticultural pro Amelia DeMarco; helping you keep your palate fresh is an array of delicious charcuterie and cheese. 

Culture

Evan Gruzis: “Exotic Beta” and “Shadow Work”
Saturday through Oct. 22, The Hole and Nicole Klagsburn Project, free
Evan Gruzis has two solo shows running simultaneously and in collaboration. The hypercolor Miami flourishes and that distinctly sinister, Brett Easton Ellis ’80s-feel that drew so much critical attention to his earlier work still figure prominently here. Renowned architect Rafael De Cardenas (OHWOW, NIKE Stadium) collaborates with Gruzis for a sculptural installation at the “Exotic Beta” show.

MoMA PS 1 presents “September 11”

Sunday through Jan. 9, MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave., $10
This group show commemorates 9/11 with works exploring the events’ far-reaching consequences while eschewing images of the event itself, as well as artwork made directly in response. The show includes 70 works by 41 artists including William Eggleston, Alex Katz, Christo, Diane Arbus, John Chamberlain and Yoko Ono and John Lennon.

Outside

Wind Elegy: Remembrance for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11
Sunday, noon-4 p.m., Wave Hill, West 249th Street at Bingham Road, Bronx, free
A contemplative and organic elegy for 9/11: Patrons write their memories, reflections, or prayers regarding this 10th anniversary on natural-fiber paper and tie them to Wave Hill’s pergola. After a week of fluttering in the breeze, the papers get composted. Dust to dust. LT

Music

Warm Up Closer featuring Tanlines
Saturday, 2-9 p.m., MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave., Long Island City, $15
While Hurricane Irene rained on the Warm Up parade, forcing the summer series to cancel one event, MoMA PS1 vows not to disappoint, adding another great event with a lineup that’s made for outdoor partying. Tanlines and Teengirl Fantasy are joined by Physical Therapy for an afternoon that will have you wishing farewell to summer in style.

Film

Fashion in Film
Friday to Sunday, Museum of Arts and
Design, 2 Columbus Circle, $10
Fashion in Film highlights momentous fashion-forward movie moments as well as explores the business of things chic. In addition to screening classics like “Qui Etes-Vou, Polly Maggoo?,” “X, Y and Zee,” “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!,” the program also includes recent docu­mentaries; “Hearts and Crafts” is about the Hermes fashion house.

“Where Soldiers Come From”
Friday through Sept. 25, Village East Cinema, 181 Second Ave., $13
This is a moving story of a group of small-town friends who enlist in the National Guard and find themselves fighting in Afghanistan. The film follows the soldiers as they prepare, serve and return, but the thought-provoking doc is less about combat and more about the transformation that occurs when you take citizen soldiers and send them off to war.

Talk

Granta presents Islamophobia, the Media, and Echoes
Friday, 7 p.m., BookCourt, 163 Court St., Brooklyn, free
Part of Granta Magazine’s four-night series of readings and discussions that explore the stories of 9/11, this event focuses on Islamophobia, media rhetoric, and how we remember 9/11. Sociologist Todd Gitlin joins law professor Lawrence Joseph and author Alia Malek in a talk with Granta magazine editor John Freeman.

Sports

Gotham Girls Roller Derby: Brooklyn vs. Queens
Saturday, 8:30 p.m., Hunter College, B3 Gym, Lexington Avenue and East 68th Street, $19.99-$35
We all argue about which borough is better, but tonight the Brooklyn Bombshells and Queens of Pain battle it out on the rink.

Nightlife

Props with Rich Medina and Akalepse  
Wednesday, 10 p.m., Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker St., $5
Decades before house music got Westerners all wiry on the dance floor, Nigeria’s polyrhythmic Afrobeat sound was doing the same thing. In addition to being a master jock in the worlds of both hip-hop and house, DJ, producer and poet Rich Medina is an expert on the stuff.
