Nightlife Agenda

The spirit of the holiday season is alive and well in the Nightlife Agenda, as we have ugly holiday sweater parties and bar crawls for charity, a gift-filled Going Out Gurus happy hour, an apres-ski themed '80s dance party and a chance to see a Swedish Santa Lucia celebration (with DJs and an open bar) at the House of Sweden. Something else? Nas and Damian Marley bring an all-star roster of hip-hop and reggae luminaries to Zanzibar, Love celebrates its anniversary with free admission, free drinks and guest hosts, Brendan Benson leaves the Raconteurs behind to rock out and '90s indie favs Versus play the Black Cat.
