X-MAS SPIRIT: It’s Christmas Eve, and enjoy the night with a drink while watching “Bad Santa” at the Brew And View. This Terry Zwigoff movie stars Billy Bob Thornton as a conman who dresses up as Santa to infiltrate and rob department stores. 3145 N. Sheffield Ave.; Lakeview. 10 p.m. $5. 21 and older.

WHAT’S A CHRISTKIND?: Today’s the last day to check out Christkindlmarket at Daley Plaza. If you’re looking for a last minute gift or stocking stuffer, check out this German-themed market, which has been a holiday staple for the last 14 years. Washington, Clark, and Dearborn streets; Loop. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

FANCY PANTS: If you’re into a more traditional kind of Christmas that involves plenty of male camel toe, the Joffrey Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker” continues its run at Roosevelt University. The name of this Tchaikovsky classic makes it easy to come up with some tacky pick-up line for that hot dancer you couldn’t keep your eyes off of during the show. 50 E. Congress Parkway; South Loop. 2 p.m. $25 to $100.
