Get Buzzed While Getting Rid of Your Junk

Tart will ring in the holidays next week with White Elephant gifts and holiday nog

Holiday rule: All re-gifting parties should include spiked punch.

So if you want to get rid of something that’s been sitting and collecting dust in your closet or garage, Tart at the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel is throwing a White Elephant holiday bash next Thursday, December 18. In addition to spiked punch bowls, guests can enjoy Naughty Or Nice Nog while unloading their junk and warming up by the fireplace on Tart’s patio.

You don’t have to bring a White Elephant to show up for free snacks or the cash-bar holiday drinks, but anybody who comes with a wrapped gift, even a “silly” one, gets entered into a drawing for prizes like an overnight stay at the hotel or tickets to White Arrows at the El Rey. You’re also free to come up with your own drinking game that involves counting ugly sweaters.

redarrow Tart, 115 S. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, 323-566-2608. The party goes from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
