Whether you always dress like a sexy elf every year or avoid the city streets all weekend, the outrageous and infamous Santacon is taking place this Saturday. Surprisingly, there are other things to do, which of course still involves the holidays, obviously because NYC is just a festive city of jolly good cheer, only this time of year.


Littlefield “No Office” Holiday Party

The two popular blogs “The Skint” and “Brokelyn” are teaming together for their 6th annual No Office Holiday Party, for those of us that are too creative for the traditional 9 to 5 office setting. The party will feature live-band karaoke by rock star karaoke, DJ doctor mister, sexy Santas, a festive photo booth, and food by “Yeah Dawg” available for purchase. $5 advance tickets and $8 bucks at the door will help give you that 9 to 5 traditional office feel, without the NSFW drunken colleague tales.


The Xmas Pop Sing-Along

Who doesn’t love drunkenly belting out tunes from the NSYNC Christmas album for the world to hear? To feed this addiction in a proper setting, Union Hall is hosting a sing-along of holiday-hit music videos, with all the lyrics on screen so you can sing alongside your fellow XMAS fans. $10 gets you cookies and milk, a picture with Santa, a Santa costume contest, and fun X-mas drinks! “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” will sound THAT much better with a drink of the same name in your hand. Fifteen percent of proceeds will be donated to the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club, which will make your antics worth it.


Thrillist Holiday Hub

“Thrillist” is hosting a special pop-up lodge right in the middle of the Meatpacking District. You can RSVP for the various sessions on the site, which will all be different with its own rotation of food and drinks. Throughout the weekend you will find a station for grooming/pampering, an internationally inspired photo booth, killer cocktails from a holiday rum bar, and more. The suggested donation of $10 will benefit No Kid Hungry®, providing nutritious food for hungry kids and teaching their families to cook healthy, affordable meals.


Etsy’s Handmade Holiday Market

For holiday gifts with handmade and personal meaning, look no further than the Etsy New York handmade cavalcade. Taking place from December 5 to 11 at Chelsea Market, the market is comprised of members from the Etsy NY Team. This unique market showcases a selection of handmade wares including jewelry, greeting cards, art, beauty products, clothing, gifts for baby, and more from indie vendors all based in the tri-state area. Support the local artisans while also getting one-of-a-kind gifts for your family and friends. That is a win-win holiday situation.
