NEW YEAR'S EVE STORYTIME PARTY
Hey, kiddies, gather 'round for this extra-special millennial reading of Paul Owen Lewis' children's classic, "P. Bear's New Year's Party," complete with games, sing-alongs, party favors, and those funny cone hats with the elastic strap that pinches your chin. Please note: This event is strictly B.Y.O.B. Barnes & Noble Alderwood, 19401 Alderwood Mall Parkway, 425-771-2220, 11 am, free.
THREE POETS & AN OPEN MIC
We have no idea who will be reading at this event--though it doesn't really matter now, does it? If you are going to a poetry reading on New Year's Eve, you've obviously got nothing better to do, which means you're utterly indiscriminate. Wit's End Bookstore & Tea Shop, 770 N 34th St, 682-1268, 7 pm, free.
Nada. Keep drinking.
