There was a time, often called "childhood," when catching your unmarried moms making out with a fat, bearded guy in a red suit would've been a wonderful development of the most Christmassy proportions. Who'd have thought that Santa could be your stepdad? No one. And yet, here was the chubby bastard crashed out on your couch with cookie crumbs in his beard and a lit cigarette dangling from his open, snoring mouth. 

Say what? How about Mrs. Claus? Well, good question. But don't worry, she doesn't exist and neither does St. Nick. Turns out, the slob your moms brought home that Christmas so long ago wasn't the generous, cherry-cheeked resident of the North Pole -- but just some minimum-wage vagrant with a seasonal mall job. He disappeared the next morning and you never learned to drive a sleigh of 12 magical reindeer or armwrestle elves. Your holiday memories are sad, sour, and best forgotten. So blot out those woes tonight at the Pickle when holiday party Late Night Smoker breaks out a bowl of spiked eggnog and its super-secret musical lineup. 

Friday, December 25. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Doors open at 10 p.m., and there's no cover. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
