Things to do for December 24, 2009

The Weekender

Parties, Fish and Networking With Benefits

The weekend left your cookies on the table.

Thursday
Boston's Annual Matzo Ball
CONNECTIONS

Boston's Annual Matzo Ball

Ostensibly a "networking" event, your career won't be what's on your mind at the Matzo Ball party at the Roxy tonight. Twenty-five bucks gets you in the door to this giant singles party, while $150 gets you the VIP ticket, which includes a night at the Marriott on Tremont. Which will be vital if your "networking" goes particularly well.

$25, 9pm-2am, Dec 24, The Roxy, 279 Tremont St, 617-338-7699, tickets here

Fish Feasting at Davio's
OMEGA 3

Fish Feasting at Davio's

Davio's is embracing the Italian Christmas Eve "Feast of the Seven Fishes" tradition by rolling out a one-night prix fixe for the maritime-minded. You can revel in the holiday hoopla with four courses like Sicilian Tuna Tartare and Lobster Ravioli, the latter served in a decadent cream sauce and rumored to be Santa's favorite type of ravioli.

$65, 5-9pm, Dec 24, Davio's, 75 Arlington St, 617-357-4810, RSVP here

Underbar's Xmas Eve Music Fest
CLUBBING

Underbar's Xmas Eve Music Fest

Tonight is as good a night for a little clubbing as any, regardless of what holiday it is, and Underbar is bringing it strong to the hole with an international music party. Two DJs flown over from Europe will be spinning tunes all night, focusing on Russian, Greek and Latin American beats. Because nothing says Christmas like Russian house music.

$20, 10pm-2am, Dec 24, Underbar, 275 Tremont St, 617-594-1773, RSVP here

District's Christmas Eve Party
MORE CLUBBING

District's Christmas Eve Party

The good people at District are in the spirit of giving tonight, so they've dropped the normal cover charge for the evening and will be donating any toys brought to their door to needy kids. Given the way you party, you need all the karma you can get.

10pm-2am, Dec 24, District, 180 Lincoln St, 617-426-0180, RSVP required here

Saturday
The Hard Rock's Sorority Party
RUSH

The Hard Rock's Sorority Party

If you're looking to get back on the party horse Saturday, head to the Hard Rock for a sorority-hosted bash. There'll be gratis apps like bacon-wrapped scallops from 9 to 11 and half-off specialty drinks. There'll also be a live DJ and giveaways from a radio station. Just in case you didn't get that Bob Seger CD you were hoping for on Friday.

$25, 9pm-1:30am, Dec 26, Hard Rock, 22-24 Clinton St, 617-270-3624, RSVP here
