KARAOKE—Nothing says Christmas like "Chinese food buffet," and if you book a slot at Voicebox karaoke for Christmas Eve, you'll have complete access to all the free kung pao and chow mein you can shove down your throat in between singing your heart out in their private karaoke rooms. MS
Voicebox, 2112 NW Hoyt, 4-11 pm, voiceboxpdx.com

XMAS WITH MICHAEL—While you might not immediately associate Michael Jackson with Christmas (The Jackson 5 Christmas Album notwithstanding), 2009 will always be associated with his death and the re-embracing of his catalog. Spend all night drinking and dancing at A Michael Jackson Christmas tonight—good to get some practice in before New Year's Eve. MS
Mt. Tabor Theater Lounge, 4811 SE Hawthorne, 10 pm, FREE
