The World Series of Beer Pong. You know you want to go.

GO

World Series of Beer Pong The tone of the main event of everybody’s favorite drinking game is summed up thusly: #getyourballswet. The Riviera hosts hundreds of teams from around the world going for a $50,000 first-place prize. Register before December 24 for a shot at glory in a beautiful beer haze. January 1-5, times vary, individual & team prices vary.

HEAR

R. Kelly As we’ve often seen over the years at House of Blues, when an arena-sized talent packs into the intimate club, the results can be memorable. When it’s R. Kelly one night before New Year’s, there’s no telling how high he can fly. With T.K. Kirkland, December 30, 7:30 p.m., $80.

Dizzy Wright No. 22 If you didn’t see the Michigan-born, Vegas-bred MC at Life Is Beautiful, brush up on your Dizzy discography, and catch him on the Brooklyn Bowl stage. December 27, 8 p.m., $22-$25.

LAUGH

Jerry Seinfeld Tired of It’s a Wonderful Life? Start a new holiday tradition. For the past few years, Jerry’s been playing the Colosseum in December. Think of it like a Las Vegas Festivus. December 26 & 27, 7:30 p.m., $83-$165, Caesars Palace.

Joel McHale The guy kills it on Community and The Soup. Anyone out there think he can’t kill it in standup? December 29 & 30, 10 p.m., $50-$70, Mirage.

SEE

Downton Abbey The popular British period drama returns for its fifth season, now set firmly in the midst of the roaring ’20s, which should provide plenty of scandal and drama for the upper-crust Crawley family and their (usually) loyal servants. Sundays, 9 p.m., PBS; season premiere January 4.

DRINK

Ellis Island Winter Spiced Beer If you’ve already tried the local brewery’s famous, homemade (and boozed-up) eggnog, consider sipping its seasonal suds this year. With a toasty malt and notes of cinnamon and caramel, it’s way better than some chestnuts roasting on an open fire. $3.50 draft, Ellis Island Brewery & Village Pubs.

  • It has become more political, with songs about the #MeToo movement and bias in the news. And its sound is noticeably more aggressive.
