Dance Club Pick: GOODBYE, SHITS & KITTY'S
Sadly, 2010 will mark the end of two of L.A.'s wildest and truly most wondrous dance clubs: Shits & Giggles and Miss Kitty's Parlour. Kitty's will go out with a bang starting on NYE (and ending with a final fete on its 9th anniversary, Jan. 28) but you still don't want to miss their XXXmas Ball before that, which promises "girls girls girls, hot studs and everything in between gathered around the yule log as we show you where babies come from live onstage," plus "food fights, super stud Santa spanking station, hot-ass music, a packed dirty dance floor and more." Dragonfly, 6510 Santa Monica Blvd., misskittysparlour.com. S&G marks its goodbye gathering, Last Dance, across town at the Monte Cristo, same night, with DJ Kaos (Jolly Jams, Rong/DFA). Expect K to spin from his K7 Records' DJ Kicks mix, as well as his full-length solo LP Hello Stranger. Resident DJs Victor Rodriguez and Chris Bowen take it out on the floor, with hosts Barbie-Q and Phyliss Navidad. $5 all night cover. 659 S. Westmoreland Ave. Both clubs, Fri., Dec. 17.
