So all the gifts have been opened, you've shoved as much of Grandma's pumpkin pie into your stomach as you can possibly handle, and dad has fallen asleep in front of the TV. It's time to tiptoe out for a little barhopping. The Triple Rock will be hosting a Christmas shindig to relieve stress and warm your innards. The bar opens up around 8 p.m., offering all the usual bar goodies as well as more unique options, such as the vegan white Russian. DJ ARZU will be on hand to host the evening, with Staraoke Karaoke starting up around 9 p.m. If your wacky uncle is a ham or your cousin sings like a pro, this will be their night to shine, too. 21+. Free. 8 p.m. 629 Cedar Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612.333.7399.
