The Victorian 12th Night Ball 

When: Sat., Jan. 4, 6:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $15 in advance, $20 at the door
Dickens nerds who missed San Francisco’s Great Dickens Christmas Fair are in luck—PEERS (Period Events and Entertainments Re-Creation Society) is throwing its annual Dickens-themed holiday party this Saturday at the Alameda Elks Lodge (2255 Santa Clara Ave.), featuring dancing, drinks, and Dickens himself. Partygoers can learn classic Victorian ballroom moves during the dance lesson at 7 p.m. and then promptly test their skills during the formal dance hour, during which Bangers & Mash will play waltz, polka, and mazurka tunes. The evening, of course, would not be complete without a dramatic reading of The Christmas Carol by Robert Young from San Francisco’s Dickens Fair, and Peerless Music Hall’s performance of mid-19th-century pop songs. Costumes and role-playing are encouraged, but by no means required.
