Our Dan Fogelberg-Free Rundown of the Best New Year's Eves in Town!

PIE IN THE FACE!—A fundraiser for the Portland Area Theatre Alliance, Fight Night offers a slew of "five-minute theater duels" from local theater companies, featuring everything from "verbal shout-offs" to "musical matches."

Here's your chance for revenge! EH
