|Oops, wrong movie.|
You know that tough week you've had before the holiday break? Well tonight you can LET IT GOOOOOOOOOOO, LET IT GOOOOOOOOOOOOO! by heading over to Avalon Park before 7pm for their Movie Under the Stars featuring Frozen. It's free but be sure to bring a blanket and bundle up. Bonus points if you sing along off-key.
Everyone enjoyed Santacon, but did you feel like it was missing a little nerd flavor? Fear not, Florida Anime Experience brings you Cosplay Christmas- a party where you can dress up as your favorite character with a holiday twist and enjoy live performances, tasty treats, and some video games and a movie! Free, 7pm.

Throw away your razors, the Orlando Facial Hair Club is having their Holiday Party at Oblivion Taproom at 8pm, free. If attractive men with beards isn't your thing (hahaha, kidding- it's everyone's thing.), Oblivion is also having their Holiday Cheer and Beer Bash with an impressive beer list! Starts at 4pm.
Can't think of what to get your Secret Santa? Or do you have a cousin that has everything they need? Get creative with your shopping and join Tittie-Thyme's 3rd Zine Release and Hobby Fair Holiday Boogie at St. Matthews Tavern. Tons of quirky gifts and you can drink which you shop, which is honestly everyone's goal this season, right? 8pm, free.
Sunday, December 21st
Want some intelligent conversation with your brunch? Well join the first meeting of Feminism for Everyone where anyone can come with an open mind to have a great discussion about feminist issues. 11:30am, Stardust Video and Coffee.
Since a lot of you don't have work Monday, why not check out Southern Fried Sunday for the Holidays at Will's Pub? Hangovers be damned! With a great line-up and only $8 to get in, you'll want to take a few shots of espresso beforehand so you can party from 5:30pm until the wee hours of the night!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS ORLANDOANS, MAY YOUR DAYS BE MERRY AND BRIGHT!
