The Weekend Update (Week of 12/13)

Get Your Act Together

Event of the Week

The Christmas Cocktail Soirée, 12/14

Sure, it feels good to throw some change in the general direction of the Salvation Army guy on the corner. But wouldn't it feel really good to swank it up at Whiskey Park for a night of live music and tastings from Boston's best restaurants instead? All in the name of Toys for Tots?

Event Spotlight: The Back Bay Santa Speedo Run

Santa Speedo Run, 12/15

Grab a front-row spot along Boylston for this annual charity run to benefit The Women's Lunch Place.

Nothing spreads holiday cheer like hundreds of runners decked out in Santa hats and banana hammocks in below-freezing temperatures.

Party Like It's 2008






Sure, we can appreciate last-minute plans as much as the next guy. But one thing we don’t eff around with is New Year’s Eve.

It only takes one year of crashing your neighbors’ party to watch Dick Clark’s "New Year’s Rockin’ Eve" to learn a lesson.

Stop putting it off and make your New Year’s plans NOW through Going.

Starry Night New Year’s Eve Party
If the usual streamers-and-party-hats style is sooo 2007, then head to the Cyclorama for a night of ice sculptures, shooting stars, Digable Planets and sexy aliens.

A Far East Experience at Felt
Always wanted to party in Thailand for New Year's, but could never afford it? Felt’s Asian-inspired night offers up a two-hour sushi bar, party favors and a champagne toast. Drink enough fish bowls and you’ll be in Bangkok in no time.

High Roller New Year's Eve
You don't have to be packing 50 Gs to be a high roller this New Year's Eve. $35 should cover you for a night of sushi, dancing, a fashion show, ice sculptures, a champagne toast, prizes and a wishing fountain at 711.
