It's mid-November, so time to think about Christmas parties. For freelancers and artists who work from home, there's no one giving us free drinks, mince pies and the opportunity to get felt up by the boss, but don't despair as there are a couple of awesome parties for us.
Last Tuesday's Office Christmas Party
Tuesday 27 November
The Shadow Electric at The Abbotsford Convent
and a promise of free booze at 7pm start time
Facey event details
Last year's Last Tuesday party was hot and there weren't even mince pies.
This year, the party is finally accepting its divine origins and heading to the Abbotsfod Convent.
There will be a short performance show hosted by Richard Higgins with the likes of The List Operators, Dr Professor Neal Portenza, Tina Del Twiste, Bron Batten and Poet Laureate Telia Nevile.
But after there will be AUDIENCE KARAOKE!
AND you can sit on Santa's lap (RRR Smart Arts's Richard Watts) and have a photo taken by Max Milne. I predict that my favourite Facey day of the year will be Weds 28 when we all put our Santa pics as our profile.
Finucane & Smith's Christmas Cocktail Party Like No Other
Wednesday 12 December
La Trobe Ballroom at the Sofitel on Collins
with killer cocktails and scrumptious canapes
This sold out pretty damn fast last year, and so it should.
A night in a ballroom with posh grub, fancy drinks and underdressed wildness – and you get the bonus warm feeling of knowing you're supporting Finucane & Smith's 2013 season.
