Figure out whodunnit at the “Clue” Movie Party at the Alamo Ritz. Contributed

“Clue” Movie Party. At one point or another, we’ve all killed Mr. Boddy. This month, the Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating the hilarious film adaptation of the board game “Clue” with a movie party. You’ll scream along with Mrs. Peacock, feel flames on the side of your face with Mrs. White and deliver perfect quips with Wadsworth, the one and only Tim Curry. Though the Alamo won’t be handing out ropes or lead pipes, you will be getting props to intensify your evening at Mr. Boddy’s spooky manor. 7 p.m. Jan. 5. $10. The Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St.

’90s Flashback Party. Kick off the new year by throwing it back to a previous decade. Zoodust, a cover band performing many of the 1990s’ most beloved tunes, is hosting this dance party and encouraging you to sing along. The band will play songs from Third Eye Blind, Backstreet Boys, Weezer, Sublime, Spice Girls, Sugar Ray, Oasis and many more. The night is 21 and up. 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Jan. 6. Free. The Highball, 1120 S. Lamar Blvd.

David Bowie Birthday Bash. Join other Bowie fans two days before his birthday to celebrate the pop icon’s brilliance. DJ Sue will play his music from the 1960s and ’70s all night long, with plenty of glitz and glamour guaranteed as he would have wanted it. Booths at Drinks Lounge are all reserved, but tables will be open to the first people in the door. There will be face painting and on-site shirt printing; funds raised will be donated to toward cancer prevention. 9 p.m. Jan. 6. $5 suggested donation. 2001 E. Cesar Chavez St.

The Hot Chocolate Run. Ready to fulfill one of your New Year’s resolutions? The organizers of the spring’s Statesman Capitol 10,000, the largest 10K race in Texas, are hosting a run that will warm you up and prepare you for the major race. The Hot Chocolate Run is a creative 3-mile loop that will take you through scenic sides of downtown, including Republic Square Park, to get to the iconic statue of Willie Nelson at ACL Live and back. And, yes, there will be hot chocolate available, marshmallows optional. 8 a.m. Jan. 6. Free. Austin American-Statesman, 305 S. Congress Ave.

The Bullock Museum’s afternoon of free admission this month will feature activities that celebrate Texas music and the arts, in addition to its regular exhibits about state history. January’s Free First Sunday doubles as the kickoff for Bernstein 100 Austin, a series of music-centric events that will culminate in June in a two-night performance of Leonard Bernstein’s “MASS,” during what would be the composer and conductor’s 100th birthday year. The Bullock Museum’s birthday kickoff will be filled with music, dance and birthday treats from Whataburger. Noon to 5 p.m. Jan. 7. Free. 1800 Congress Ave.

Transform “I, Tonya” Workout with Erica Nix.
