2. Why wait till midnight Tuesday to celebrate the New Year? The New Year's Eve Party at Liam Maguire's Irish Pub starts at 4 p.m. with a full menu, Irish specials, Rossacroo-na-loo onstage and an "Irish New Year" toast at 7 p.m. A second seating at 8:30 p.m. offers a four-course prix fixe meal ($50) plus a champagne toast, party favors and live music. You can also pay $10 for the entertainment and order from the regular menu at the bar.
3. Celebrate New Year's Day with a walk on one of your favorite Falmouth beaches and keep an eye out for snowy owls, which have invaded the Cape and Islands in unprecedented numbers this year, wildlife experts say.
4. Friday, Jody Scalise, AKA "The Motion Man" will be performing circus acts, illusion, magic and more physical comedy at Atria Woodbriar Place, located at 389 Gifford St. Falmouth. 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., free.
5. Have you met cuddly, playful Cookie? People for Cats, located at 44 Beagle Lane in Teaticket, is open to the public on Wednesdays (except New year's, we're guessing) from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or by appointment at 508-540-5654.
