If the work holiday party isn’t exactly your idea of the perfect evening — but you’re obligated to spend a little time schmoozing and elbow-rubbing — Powerhouse Factories in Newport offers its annual holiday after party as an antidote. Whether you’re looking for a poster for your cooler-than-you sibling (who always knows about the best new bands before you) or just looking for a place to blow off a little work steam, this is the place to be. The first 50 guests will receive a free holiday party poster, and all posters are buy one get one half off. Spend your money on limited edition posters designed and printed by local artists instead of some mass-produced tchotchke at a department store. Your conscious and gift grantees will be happy you did. 6 p.m.-midnight, Friday Dec. 7. Powerhouse Factories, 33 E. Ninth St., Newport. phfdesign.com.
