Festivus for the Rest of Us

Photocopying your ass and sending it in an "urgent message" to your boss. Stepping under the mistletoe with that girl from HR; drinking so much hunch punch you pass out in the recycling bin. Ah yes, office Christmas parties are full of good times. Good times that are likely to get your photogenic ass canned on the quick. But don't worry, faithful partier. There's an office party you can attend where it's fully safe to drop all pretensions and show your coworkers just how screwed up you really are. And that's the World's Largest Office Christmas Party at Cafe Iguana Pines, presented by Power 96 (8358 Pines Blvd., Hollywood).

The sprawling, multi-roomed dance club is getting a drastic overhaul for the party, turning its subtropical stylings into a festive - but nondenominational - winter paradise. There'll be giant penguins hanging from the rafters, snow everywhere, tons of blue neon, reflective ice caves to wander through, and holiday lights strung up by the gross. Think of it as a cross between Superman's fortress of solitude and a freaky-deaky winter wonderland. Oh, and does your office Christmas party feature performances by Rick Ross, Flo Rida, Pleasure P, J.T. Money, and Brisco, plus half-a-dozen more hip hop and pop artists? Didn't think so. A mere $20 gets you an all-access pass to holiday debauchery. Get tickets at ticketmaster.com, or call the club for more info at 954-433-8787.
