Well it's 12.21.12 and the world hasn't ended...yet. You can celebrate with John Hodgman, or Prince Rama or a variety of other apocalypse parties. Meanwhile, we've got some thematically-appropriate videos you can watch below.
If the world doesn't end and you've still got holiday shopping to do, this is the last weekend of Brooklyn Night Bazaar in Williamsburg. You can also see live sets from JD Samson & MEN, Laura Stevenson & The Cans, Azar Swan, Railbird, and Silent Drape Runners... free entry. Plus, this weekend's pop-up restaurant is Roberta's. Tomorrow night's "secret" headliner has yet to be revealed. Any guesses?
Today is also Make Music Winter in NYC, with many interactive outdoor musical happening throught the city, including a mass sing-a-long of John Lennon's "Imagine" in Times Square.
