What we're clicking on this week at Fathom HQ.

Japanophiles, listen up: If you haven't heard of Sumo Stew, add it to your agenda for 2017. Earlier this week, Team Fathom attended the food-and-sporting event in Brooklyn. We had the best time watching sumo on a big screen as we ate bowl after bowl of curry-flavored chankonabe and drank too many matcha cocktails to count. The next ones will be in San Francisco in January and Brooklyn in March. – Berit, editor

English comedian Daniel Kitson is back at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn with Mouse: The Persistance of an UnlikelyThought, a clever and funny performance that's on through November 27. – Pavia, CEO
