Visions of sugar plums (and fistfuls of Ambien) dance in many heads tonight as Santa makes his rounds; if you’re Jewish and single and really want to mingle with some ho-ho-ho’s, the city transforms into a sort of JDate Live, as the Matzo Ball takes over Capitale, and the Ball 2007, which is more or less the same thing, swallows five other venues all at once, not to mention “complimentary Escalade and Hummer Limousine Service” (sigh) between parties, and—hey, look at this!—the band Booga Sugar, best known for serenading Polo-clad masses in the Hamptons—beware, ladies, the bassist once tried to seduce us despite the fact that he’s 42 and married! Plus, really, the bassist? Right?

[Matzo Ball, Capitale, 130 Bowery, 9 p.m., www.matzoball.org; the Ball 2007, 8 p.m. to 4 a.m., www.nyc.letmypeoplego.com]
