Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

Other than waiting for a table at Yard House.

1. START A NEW CHRISTMAS TRADITION
This weekend brings us a couple of new holiday-themed events that are a little different than the usual Christmas fare. It’s something I wrote about in my Bee column today. There’s the inaugural SantaCon Fresno happening Saturday with people dressed as Santas bar-hopping around the Tower District. Then there’s Fresno’s first-ever festival celebrating the “Seinfeld”-created holiday, Festivus, which is happening tonight at Fulton 55. It’s organized by the Dirty Dowdy Podcast and features local bands and comics as well as many of the Festivus traditions as outlined on “Seinfeld” — the Festivus pole, Airing of Grievances and so forth.

2. ENJOY AN OLD CHRISTMAS TRADITION
If drunk Santas and Feats of Strength are too much for ya, and you want some of the standard Fresno holiday traditions, then consider any of the following, all of which are free except Zoo Lights.

3. ROCK FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Another Christmas tradition is the local music community giving back to needy causes. This weekend you’ll find a benefit concert for a rare disease and a rockin’ toy drive.

4. PARTY WITH STEVE AOKI
Party-starting, jet-setting DJ Steve Aoki oughta have Rainbow Ballroom thumpin’ on Saturday night. Read my interview with Aoki to get warmed up. [Tickets]

5. HAVE A CRAZY NIGHT AT AUDIE’S
Audie’s Olympic has what promises to be a zany night of music Saturday night, as Igor & Red Elvises make a tour stop to play with the always-hilarious Brian Kenney Fresno plus high-octane rockabilly group Motel Drive. It’s emceed by Jay Smith Biatch, which adds another level of crazy. You’ve been warned.
