IT'S KLEZTASTIC: One of the most critically acclaimed klezmer bands (think traditional Eastern European/Jewish/folk music) is in Connecticut tonight. In fact, The Klezmatics are the only Grammy-award winning klezmer musicians. They've played around the world, and have molded eclectic musical influences like jazz and punk. Tonight, they're bringing their sound to the Westport Country Playhouse. Tickets are $35. 8 p.m.
IDOL MANIA: Another night, another American Idol fave. David Archuleta, the runner-up on season seven of "Idol" is coming to the MGM at Foxwoods for a "Christmas from the Heart."

CHEERS: Celebrate the season with a Holiday Toast tonight at the Water's Edge Resort & Spa in Westbrook. The evening will feature tastings of wine, martinis, beer, champagne and bourbon (we suggest you bring a designated driver). There will also be hors d'oeuvres provided by area restaurants.
