Monday, December 29

TRIVIA: Another pretty slow week here, as most bars are getting ready for New Year’s Eve. That said, you can still check out Bier Baron for District Trivia, one of the city’s better trivia nights. You get five rounds of four questions, with four worksheet rounds in between, some wagering going on, and the option of sipping one (or more) of hundreds of beers. Free. 7:30 PM.

Tuesday, December 30

MUSIC: Holy Ghost is one of the more exciting electrodance bands out there right now. They’re not overly jarring and actually sound like, well, music, instead of robots or aliens. Catch them at 9:30 Club for a surprisingly not-sold-out-yet show. Tickets ($20) are available online. 7 PM.

Wednesday, December 31

PARTY: It’s New Year’s Eve, duh—check out our roundup of parties for every type of celebration, whether you want no-cover and low-key or all-you-can-drink debauchery.

EAT: If you’re planning on a meal at a restaurant, Best Bites Blog has some great advice for how to dine like a pro and make the most of the experience, plus a roundup of places serving their usual (delicious) menus on NYE.
