Channel your inner Spieth at the Topgolf New Year’s Eve Party If your idea of ringing in the new year has absolutely nothing to do with dancing, bass, or lights, then Topgolf’s New Year’s party might be more your speed. You can practice turning that slice into a respectable swing, but if you fail you can just make it a 2016 resolution and try again.

Don’t freeze at the 4th Annual Hypnotic Donut Polar Plunge The fourth installment of this craziness is taking place at the FOE pool, which will be pumped full of ice, just to make sure it’s extra cold. There will also be a snow machine going in case the pool didn’t cool you down enough. BUT, the proceeds from ticket sales along with beer sales from Deep Ellum Brewery, and food from Not Just Q BBQ will benefit the Greater Dallas chapter of Alzheimer’s Association. So, you’re not just being an idiot jumping into freezing water, you’re being an idiot for a great cause.

Pretend you're Mario Andretti at the Fittipaldi Exotic Driving Launch Everyone at some point in time has a desire to drive an exotic sports car, and now you’ll have your chance, and you’ll also get to do it at high speeds. You have your pick of rides between a Lamborghini Superleggera, Porsche 911 Carerra, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, or Nissan GT-R. It’s all happening at the Texas Motor Speedway through Fittipaldi Exotic Driving experience. So, the question is not whether you’re going to do this, but which car are you going to drive?

Run off your spare tire at the Donut Dash One might think that donuts and running are a weird combination. If you are in this camp, we have good news for you! This event is a 5K with a donut party afterwards; however, you don’t have to do the run in order to enjoy the donuts! If you decide to do the whole thing ,though, your entry will get you: donuts (of course), a chip timer, free parking, t-shirt, finisher medal, beer from Deep Ellum, and coffee from Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters, plus access to food from various vendors. If you don’t run you get all those same things except for all of the stuff that sounds healthy.
