Monday Night Garage - 933 Lee St. S.W. Atlanta, GA 30310 Donation. 8 p.m.

Since the year is turning '18, we're going to party like we're still 17. Guests are invited to dress like their favorite high schooler (a cheerleader? band kid? Kelly Kapowski?) and come dance to throwback songs. It will be just like the days of your youth, except this time the beer is legal.

Powered by Gift Card Giver, admission to this party is a donation of a gift card (to any place, in any amount) that will be donated to high schoolers in need.

MNB will be selling beer, and Ponko Chicken will be selling snacks.

Once again, the award-winning Dad's Garage Ensemble will be skewing the quintessential Christmas play - A Christmas Carol. Guests will see favorite characters acting and improvising alongside some crazy guest invaders to create a whole new holiday experience right before your very eyes. Visited by a different character every performance (that is a complete surprise to the cast), you'll see Scrooge's past, present, and future unfold in a new way each night.
