If you’re celebrating Christmas, have a merry one! If not, happy holidays, and try to cherish this day off.
Either way, if you’re looking for something to do, we’ve got you covered as usual:
You can now watch The Interview (online). We checked it out last night, and honestly it’s pretty clumsy considering that it was made by largely the same crew behind This Is the End (easily one of the best comedies of the 21st century). But the cheap laughs are plentiful, and the bizarre novelty factor is worth something. Pairs well with spiked eggnog and weed.
If Chinatown, Little India and Jewish delis won’t satisfy your dining needs, a stack of fancy restaurants are open today, including hotel staples like the Ritz’s Maison Boulud. Check out a list of 15 open restaurants here.
If you’ve got nothing happening tonight or you just want to escape the family, Blizzarts is hosting Blizz-Mas, a dance party with DJs Sexnobe, Promise and Drop Shadow. Bonus: $1 oysters while supplies last. 3956A St-Laurent, 9 p.m., free
Or show the mic who’s boss at Piranha Bar’s Trash Ton Karaoké, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” edition, hosted by Seb Reflex. 680 Ste-Catherine W., 9 p.m., free
