Interesting tidbit: The organizers believe the Ball has brought together several couples who eventually married, and, in fact, the founder Rudnick met his wife at 1997's Matzo Ball. Whether it's for romance, or just something to do on Christmas Eve, this party draws thousands of people for a night of schmoozing and boozing. The Ball begins at 8 p.m. and takes over both Gryphon and Pangaea (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online or with cash only at the door.
