December babies got a bum deal. Our birthdays fall in the one month no one seems to have time to celebrate. If it’s not finals season, it’s winter vacation, or worse, we just get lumped in with the holidays.

But this year, that’s going to change. On Friday, December 15th at Littlefield, reclaim your birthright at the December Babies Birthday Party, an all-out celebration for the folks too long forgotten. We’re pulling out all the stops with the party perks we never got as kids: booze, for one. But also balloon animals, a magic act, cake, and of course, a room full of people who just want to celebrate US. Not to mention music spun by DJ Donwill, a photo booth, loot bags for attendees, and more special surprises throughout the night.

Naturally, anyone born in December gets in 100% FREE (ID required). And it’s just $5 at the door for everyone else, so invite your friends! Or show up solo, since you’re guaranteed to make some new best ones here.

So dress up to get down (no birthday suits, please), and come out to party! Because [extremely Patrick Swayze voice] nobody puts December babies in a corner.

The post-holiday blahs are real. But instead of staying in and sleeping through the last few precious days of 2017, we’ve got a better idea: why not dance them off? Don’t worry, you won’t even have to get out of your pajamas. The third annual PJs ‘N DJs Party is your chance to dance in fashionable flannel sets, oversized t-shirts, silk robes, or even one those fleece onesies with the animal heads. Whatever you wear to bed is fair game (just wear *something,* all you nekkid sleepers). DJs Brian Blackout and Doctor Mister (picked by Time Out New York as two of NYC’s best nightlife DJs) will be keeping your circadian rhythm in time with dreamy indie rock and electropop all night.

Hungry for more? Get your sugar high on at our free, all-you-can-eat cereal bar!

So hit the snooze button on your New Year’s resolutions and set your alarms for December 29th at 10pm to come out to Littlefield and party one last time before 2018. You can always sleep next year!

Tickets are just $5. Get your tickets now!
