If you're like me (seven feet tall, bald, afraid of babies), you hate New Year's Eve. Nothing against the passage of time or anything esoteric like that, it just arrives right on the heels of Christmas. Let's space this stuff out a bit better and give ourselves time to really enjoy it. How about we agree to celebrate New Year's Eve in August? Oh, look: Prison Performing Arts agrees. At 7 p.m. tonight, you can count down to midnight at Mad Art Gallery (2727 South Twelfth Street; 314-289-4190 or during this benefit for PPA. There will be appearances by Father Time and Baby New Year (keep that baby away!), celebrity bartenders, fire-eaters and fire belly dancers, an art auction and even a New Year's Toast. There's also a Roast, specifically of Prison Performing Arts Director Agnes Wilcox. Tickets are $25 to $30, and you're encouraged to mix and match traditional New Year's Eve attire with comfortable summer clothing.
