The big story this week is the final Mousetrap dance party at the Black Cat after 11 years of bringing Britpop and indie tunes to the masses, but the days leading up to (and including) Christmas are full of good cheer and good beer. Try rare Stone brews, including "Lukcy Basartd" at Bourbon's Get Stoned Evening; drink well and help charity at the new Falafel Frenzy party on Christmas Eve; sip free beers while checking out Petworth's new Blue Banana sports bar, settle next to a fire and sing Irish drinking songs in Alexandria, or sip free drinks at the Park's Christmas night party.
