So here are some of your options for Friday, December 12: a political twist on the Nativity (American Pastorela). Spins by a world-class deejay (Mark de Clive-Lowe). A lo-fi/punk Christmas bash (East Side Records Christmas Party). A Bad Santa-style show for the attention-challenged (7 Minutes Under the Mistletoe). A winter desert walk under a frosty moon. Jesus, is it any contest? Were gonna get hammered at the Christmas party, but you might enjoy the Full Moon Hike at McDowell Mountain Regional Park. Seriously, though, the hikes right up there, and if youve ever seen McDowell Mountain illuminated by natures floodlight, you know why. The guided trek takes participants to the old Pemberton Ranch site along the Pemberton Trail.
