Good New Year's Stories

For a low-key, literary New Year's Eve, join 2nd Story at Morseland (1218 W. Morse Avenue), to hear holiday tales from storytellers Molly Each, Bobby Biedrzycki, Andrew Reilly and Megan Stielstra. Doors open at 9:30, and stories start at 10. With the $40 ticket ($35 in advance), you get a complimentary drink ticket, buffet, and live music -- plus a post-performance DJ until 2am.

If you want to party hard on the Eve but calm your aching head with some good writing, head over to the Haymarket Pub & Brewery (737 W. Randolph St.) for Drinking & Writing Theater's first show of 2011. They promise that "Drinking & Writing Volume III: To Cure A Hangover will cure what ales you...yes, ales." Tickets are $15, and brunch (and booze, if you can handle it) will be available for purchase. Hair of the dog, folks, hair of the dog.
