The 2008 Matzo Ball at Prive in Planet Hollywood.

Given that Hanukkah ended in early December, it’s natural for Jews to worry about how they can kill time as the clock runs out on 2010, especially with so many nightclubs going dark this time of year.

Calendar

Bagel Ball
Dec. 23, 8 p.m., $25-$40
Blush Boutique Nightclub

Matzo Ball

The local Jewish singles community need not fret. On Dec. 23, the Jewish Community Center of Southern Nevada will present its 16th Annual Bagel Ball. The self-proclaimed largest gathering of Nevada Jewish singles takes place at Blush in the Wynn, where a ticket gets you complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres for 2 hours -- and the opportunity to help a worthy cause. Prizes will be raffled, with proceeds benefiting the Jewish Family Service Agency’s food pantry.

The festivities continue Christmas Eve, when Blue Martini opens its doors for the 24th Annual Matzo Ball. Las Vegas is one of just 10 North American cities sponsoring the social-networking event, presented by the Society of Young Jewish Professionals, JDate, Sleek Medspa and Yelp. While enjoying live entertainment, attendees receive a free cocktail and appetizers.

Now how do you say “party on” in Hebrew?
