SCOUT PICKS: 12/26/14 – 12/31/14

By now you’ve probably been trapped with your family for days. Remind yourself why you moved out with any one of these Scout Picks.

Saturday, 12/27
Shuffleboard Saturday
2 p.m. – midnight, free
Aeronaut Brewing Company
14 Tyler St.
Grab your velcro sneakers and blast some smooth jazz as you get ready for Shuffle Board Saturday. And this isn’t the table kind–guests will be able to try their hand at the real deal. You’ll also be able to grab some food and drinks from Munch Mobile. And of course there will be beer.

Sunday, 12/28
Café Raqs
7 p.m., $5 suggested donation
Center for Arts at the Armory
191 Highland Ave.
There are few other places showcasing the diverse dance scene that the Boston area has to offer for only a $5 suggested donation. You can see some moving and shaking every fourth Sunday.

Wednesday, 12/31
The Slutcracker
7 p.m., $27
Somerville Theatre
55 Davis Square
If you’ve put off seeing this Somerville institution, this is your last chance. There’s only one more show left in the season, so act now before they pack up the pasties for the year.
