Joy Is in Giving (and Drinking)
New Times admits it: When we say that the holidays are a time for giving,what were really referring to most of the time is the practice of giving our livers all they can handle. See, there is nothing wrong with boozing till were as tipsy as a dreidel, our noses are red as Rudolphs, and were generally lit like a kinara especially if our pursuit of holiday jollies benefits a good cause. Thats why Mickey Byrnes Second-Annual Festivus for the Rest of Us! should be marked on the holiday calendars of celebrators of all kinds and creeds.
By attending this cheerful affair, youll not only be able to meet your livers holiday quota by slamming em down at the two-hour open bar but youll be doing it to benefit the Ann Storck foundation, which is as dedicated to helping children and adults with developmental disabilities as you are to blacking out in a goofy sweater in December. The party costs ten bucks to get in and starts at 7 p.m. at Mickey Byrnes (1921 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood). A $25 Sweet Elfin Deal package, which includes a T-shirt and raffle ticket, is also available. Visit annstorckcenter.org, or call 954-584-8000.
