Nightlife Agenda: Holiday happy hours and Bell Biv Devoe

Holiday season means two things: Events celebrating Christmas with spiked eggnog and ugly sweaters, and happy hours encouraging you to give a little something to help others at this time of year. You'll find plenty of both in this week's column, along with an appearance by New Jack Swing legends Bell Biv Devoe; a parade of art cars; live music and dance lessons at a festive Brazilian holiday party; chances to try rare seasonal beers at Rustico's Festivus gatherings; and the 17th anniversary of the famed '80s Dance Party, which has now run seven years longer than the decade it celebrates.
