Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

Christmas Eve is the best night of the year to be Jewish, especially if you're looking for a packed dance floor. While some folks are staying up late to wait for Santa, you'll find a pair of parties catering to young(ish) single members of the Tribe. The long-running Matzo Ball is taking over adjacent nightspots Sesto Senso, Five and Andalu with DJs spinning Top 40, hip-hop and salsa. It runs from 9 to 2, and the $25 cover charge is good for all three clubs.

For the past 14 years, the Matzo Ball's gone head-to-head with the Gefilte Fish Gala, which is being held this year at Ultrabar. DJs at the multi-level club are spinning '80s, '90s and current music. A charitable donation of at least $5 is suggested at the door, and a portion of proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and other charities. Volunteers will also be collecting canned goods and clothing at the door. The party runs from 8 to 2, and casual attire is suggested.

New to the area and social scene, as are some of my colleagues and we'd appreciate guidance on "best of the best" for New Year's Eve offerings...for anything that is not too late to book, that is.Seems like its really hard to find any info so can you suggest good ideas for restaurants, clubs (dance &/or easy listening), parties, and/or unique activities (e.g. monuments at night special tour perhaps? HELP...12/31 is fast approaching and we have NO PLANS YET! BTW your New Year's Day breakfast ideas are a great idea.
Thanks & Happy Holidays to you all--just discovered the GOG and I like your content & style.
