  • White Party: Snow Ball

    You've got a month of holiday parties ahead of you — prepare here, with ugly sweaters sweating and a couple DJs a'spinning. 

    Rolling: The ugliest sweater wins an ICA store gift certificate, and thankfully there's no prize for worst holiday song karaoke performance.

    Fri 5-10p. Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave., Seaport (617-478-3100). $15 here.

    Nearby: Harpoon Brewery Beer Hall; Whiskey Priest; Del Frisco's

  • Some Like It Hot: Downeast Cider Launch Party

    You have a new hot date. Now take her to Boston's new hot brew house for some of their new hot cider. You'll look cool.

    Flame on: If she doesn't like dancing, drinking games, and Roxy's grilled cheese, at least you'll know she's not worth it.

    Sat 2p-9p. Downeast Cider House, 200 Terminal St., Charlestown (207-200-7332). $25 here.

    Nearby: Navy Yard Bistro; Tangerino; Pier 6

  • Seeing Red: SantaCon

    Forget cookies and milk. Santa needs something stronger, which you'll (as St. Nick) find on this bar crawl.

    Gifts galore: First you're nice (bring an item for Toys for Tots), then you're naughty (bring an R-rated gift for your fellow Santas).

    Sat Noon. GameOn!, 82 Lansdowne St., Fenway (617-351-7001). Free.

    Nearby: Lansdowne Pub; Eastern Standard; Copperfield's

  • Sounds of the City: Boston Music Awards

    Boston's best artists and bands get the Liberty Hotel bumping for one night only. 

    Sound check: Use our guide to pack a playlist of songs from the five must-see nominated artists.

    Sun 7p. The Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles St., Beacon Hill (617-224-4000). $25-100 here.

    Nearby: The Tip Tap Room; The Hill; Harvard Gardens
