So instead of cursing the world for being closed on what (to you) is just another day, be the belle (or beau) of the ball the Matzo Ball, that is, an annual singles mixer hosted by the Society of Young Jewish Professionals. Don your best come-hither apparel and head down to Polly Esther's, 2301 Blake Street, at 8 p.m. for drinks, dancing and everything that goes along with it.
The Matzo Ball is not just for Jewish singles; everyone is invited, including couples. Tickets are $25 in advance and $35 at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to www.matzoball.org, where you'll receive a $100 Sleek MedSpa gift certificate for ordering online, as well as $5 off each ticket with a "matzo" discount code (all lowercase letters). Attendees must be 21 or older. For details, call Polly Esther's at 303-382-1976 or SYJP at 1-888-633-5326.
Sun., Dec. 24, 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
