This weekend, you are probably going to be in one of two camps. 1) You’ll be wrapped up in a happy cocoon of Christmastime, joyfully taking part of all the eating, presents, caroling and sleeping. Or, 2) You’ll be gritting your teeth, trying to find a way to escape the family and pressure of making this the perfect Christmas. Or you might have a combination of the two, with number 2) arriving later. At any rate, you might need to dash to a good show for a little drink and some rock ‘n’ roll. In which case, we have the perfect bunch of solutions for you, below.
