Get Your Wings.

A popular subreddit at the moment is the four-year-old FiftyFifty challenge, wherein a link will be given two descriptions, one cute/awesome and another grotesque. Before clicking the link you don’t know which of these was its two captions.

It’s a Wonderful Life at Majestic Theatre
It’s this close to December 25th and you haven’t seen George Bailey yell “Merry Christmas, you old lamppost!” yet? Then bring the family to see arguably the best Christmas movie ever — and at the Majestic, no less. Sure, it’s probably playing at your parents’ house on Christmas Eve.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra at American Airlines Center

I love a good party, but a good party that’s free (with RSVP here) is even better. Do214 and Prekindle have partnered for another edition of their annual holiday party and have invited the world to come enjoy sets by -topic, Different Strokes, Siamese, Sean Russell (of Cut Throat Finches) and my personal favorite DJ, Fishr Pryce. Word on the street is Santa might even be making a guest appearance, so impress him and get off the naughty list with a $12 donation to charity, event T-shirt included. — Hannah Steiner
