Don't be a schmuck. Yule love it!

Following the success of Space Nerds Cocktail Week and Ghostbusters night, Silvertone bartender Nick Korn and Backbar’s Sam Treadway join forces again, this time to celebrate the Bill Murray classic, Scrooged. On December 21, get in the holiday spirit with a three-and-a-half course cocktail menu paired with cinema-themed snacks and of course, a screening of the Richard Donner fan favorite.

Cocktails will be based on the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in the film. For example, “The Ghost of Christmas Past” will bring Buster Poindexter’s cigar-chomping taxi cab driver to life with smoked maple and cigar tincture, served over smoked ice. “The Ghost of Christmas Present” will combine Crater Lake vodka, cranberry syrup, Zirbenz, Yellow Chartreuse, lime juice, and a torched juniper sprig.

Expect cheese holiday attire and tacky holiday-themed decorations. Ugly holiday sweaters are highly encouraged.

$40 per person, Dec. 21, 10 p.m., 7 Sanborn Court, Somerville; 617-718-0249 or
