Aquarium Café Bar on Masson welcomes all to their day/night-long Xmas festivities, with a potluck from 5–7 p.m. (bring a cold dish to dig in to the spread) and music and drink all night. Suggested attire: your best, or your worst Xmas/‘80s sweater. 2923 Masson, 2 p.m.–3 a.m.

In the Village, Bar le Cocktail hosts a Christmas Karaoke party, with a draw for a bottle of bubbly among the first 10 singers to take the stage. 1669 Ste-Catherine E., 10 p.m.
