Friday, 12/23 - Film
Take a break from all the Christmas craziness. Make it a movie date night at the local Cineplex. If you didn’t get tickets to the opening weekend of “Star Wars: Rogue One,” that’s always an option. Or, check out “Sing,” the animated feature about animals competing in a reality singing competition. Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane and Scarlett Johansson star. Check local listings.
Saturday, 12/24 - Nightlife
If you’re not going to be on your knees at midnight mass, spend Christmas Eve with Santa at The Manor, 2345 Wilton Drive, in Wilton Manors. DJ Sushiman will be in the booth and Santa Claus will be passing out free membership cards for discounted admission. Later, hop on Santa’s lap for a picture. Chances are you’ll get your stocking stuffed, too, if you’re lucky. More information at TheManorComplex.com.
Sunday, 12/25 - Holiday
Merry Christmas! After partaking in all the holiday rituals and a big Christmas dinner with the family, you’re really going to need a drink! Fortunately, just like Wal-Mart, the many bars and clubs along Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors never close for the holidays. There will be plenty of Christmas cheer at the clubs and bars, so plan to dance those extra calories away at one of the many retro tea dances.
