GIVE BACK AND RECEIVE
Why pay to wait around a mall when you can get free photos with St. Nick at Triple B? Stop by the Jingle Ball Benefit on Dec. 20 and you’ll also enjoy music from Almost Normal and Sasha Sirota, plus a silent auction with more than 50 items up-for-grabs. Proceeds benefit the Cleveland Clinic and Keep Memory Alive. Ticketfly.com.
DRINK YOUR OVALTINE
A Christmas Story is everywhere this time of year. TBS runs an annual 24-hour marathon and that uncle of yours won’t stop shouting, “You’ll shoot your eye out!” But we still suggest you see the seasonal classic live in all its leg lamp glory at Las Vegas Little Theatre now through Dec. 21. No BB guns allowed. LVLT.org.
Melody Sweets presents XXXMas: A Burlesque Christmas Spectacular! on Dec. 23 in Absinthe Theater at Caesars Palace.

Nothing says “the holidays” quite like philanthropy … and pasties. MelodySweets.com.
(ALMOST) FAREWELL, TRIFECTA
Unfortunately, Wendy Kveck’s Stanley Hall is Trifecta Gallery’s penultimate exhibit. Fortunately, her bold exploration of all things feminine brings the 10-year-old art haven toward a beautiful finish. See it on display through Dec. 27 (closed Christmas Day). TrifectaGallery.com.
CORRECTION: The print edition of this week’s Hit List stated that Stanley Hall is Trifecta Gallery’s final show. Their final show is in January.
