A Very Scantily Clad Holiday

Turkey, family and Guitar Hero — although maybe not in that order — are the things I’ll miss most about not going home for Christmas. (Yes, after-dinner Guitar Hero is a recently added holiday tradition in my family.) I’m sure like-minded transplants who can’t afford plane fare have their own wish lists. Fortunately, the third annual Fuck Xmas Party at 3 Kings Tavern, 60 South Broadway, is the perfect remedy for everyone’s holiday blues. “We don’t have family out here, so we figured, why not open the bar?” says media contact Michelle Scheffer (aka Fanny Fitztightlee). “That way, if people don’t have a place to go, they can say ‘Screw it’ and come hang out with us.”

Tonight, starting precisely at 8:01 p.m., 3 Kings and Ooh La La Burlesque will spread a little Christmas cheer. As might be expected from its irreverent name, this party is an opportunity for some unusual holiday fun. Whether you’re away from your family or you just want to get away, tonight’s activities are sure to keep those seasonal blues at bay. “Really gory” slasher flicks, very scantily clad bartenders, a live burlesque show and live music from Hans Concord — well, it’s not your typical family Christmas.

In the spirit of the season, admission is free. For more information, call 303-777-7352 or go to http://3kingstavern.com.
