the nylon weekend guide
the best places to keep the holiday parties going.
We know you're dying to ride that brand new bike that Santa got you for Christmas. So you might as well ride it over to FrankenBike #101, where you can scoop up some cool accessories for your new toy. That's right, this month's edition of the awesome and free bike swap is happening at The Austin Yellow Bike Project. Expect everything from wheels and bells for your ride to bikes for your besties (so you can cruise the town together). You can even sell your fam's old bike parts from the garage and make a few bucks--whether you spend them on that cool woven basket or beers at the bar after is up to you.
1216 Webberville Road
Playing board games with your family while you're home for the holidays is one thing, but dressing up in retro clothes and traveling back in time to an old school game show is another. And yes, that's what's going down at Davis Square Theatre in Somerville this Sunday. Expect awesome holiday-edition trivia, live music, drinks...and a really good excuse to go vintage shopping beforehand.
255 Elm Street
There are album release shows, and then there are ska punk album release shows. If you're down for the latter, then head out to the Metro tomorrow night, where Mustard Plug are bringing a holiday party in honor of their forthcoming Can't Contain It record, out in 2014 (and we heard they'll have copies with them). So go celebrate with the new music makers, plus Mixtapes, Dan Vapid & The Cheats, The Pinstripes, and Still Alive.
3730 N Clark Street
Let's face it, we've all been obsessed with Britney Spears since we first saw her on The Mickey Mouse Club, and if you think your own personal love for the pop icon couldn't get any stronger (get it?!) you'll have to think again.That's because Britney is back with a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood, which kicks off tonight. Now would be the time to scoop up your tickets--not to mention go shop her Miracle Mile boutique before the set (because seriously, unless you've got on a "Baby One More Time" inspired outfit on, you better be decked out in Britney gear).
3667 S Las Vegas Boulevard
Still feeling that residual glee that comes from being off from school or work? Then you might as well keep it going with the holiday party at Pehrspace, where you'll hear totally new versions of your holiday faves--from stories to songs--plus, you'll get to be part of a rad mixtape swap, because who doesn't love a random mixtape?! Exactly.
325 Glendale Blvd
We're guessing you got your fill of primo wine while enjoying holiday dinners this week, but just in case you didn't, Toscana Divino is offering a wine tasting tomorrow night. Expect to sample Vino Nobile di Montepulciano from Toscana (obvi), Friulano from Friuli, and more deliciousness.
900 South Miami Avenue
Whether or not you're a hardcore skateboarder, you should still hit up Folded Skate Shop tomorrow night, since the Lebanon Pike shop is hosting The Local Wizards, who are premiering their rad video. Bonus points go to the shop's selection of skateboard decks,which are totally Insta-worthy.

We know you’ve heard about MAC’s Punk Couture makeup collection, but you can finally see it (and, let’s be honest, buy it). starting today. The awesome beauty brand is inviting you to come celebrate the new line by checking out their interpretation of punk beauty at Macy's Herald Square. Should you stay or should you go? We think you know the answer to that one.
