This week, we offer How to Survive the Holidays, Part 2: Get Out and Celebrate! In it, we're got hundreds of special listings of shopping events, kid stuff, holiday shows and concerts, volunteer opportunities, parties, New Year's Eve events, and more, plus a list of the 10 must-do events this holiday season, an interview with Richard Ku of Pikesville's Mr. Chan's about why Jews eat Chinese food on Christmas, and a typically hilarious column from Jim Meyer about the various approaches to New Year's Eve.

In City Folk, we have a fascinating profile of Jim Pollock, the artist behind the hubcap Christmas tree on Hampden's 34th St.

And because the news doesn't stop for the holidays, Mobtown Beat features Edward Ericson Jr on the second anniversary of the mayor's Vacants to Value program and Van Smith on the recent crackdown on "sweepstakes parlors."

In the arts, Bret McCabe reports on Combat Paper, and important show at UMBC featuring the work of veterans and servicemembers. Geoffrey Himes reviews Bus Stop at Center Stage. Baynard Woods finds a new movement in an ambitious exhibition of artists from Baltimore and New York in four West side gallery spaces, and offers an exclusive report on Single Carrot's new Remington home. In Music, Evan Serpick talks with the Coup's Boots Riley about music and telemarketing and Michael Shank tells us what's up with indie rock. Don't forget to check out Al Shipley's Short List and read our reviews of Hitchcock and Charlie Chaplin's Monsieur Verdoux.

In Eats and Drinks, Martha Thomas reviews Johnny's and Fanya O'Donoghue makes Amicci's pane rotundo while Baynard Woods gets tipsy with homemade Kahlua.

Baltimore City Power Rankings checks the city's power players and in Spitballin', sports columnist Jim Meyer checks off his holiday wish list.
