MINGLING MENSCHES. It's touted as the country's largest Jewish singles event of the year -- more than 3,500 dressed-to-impress 21- to 39-year-olds who aren't otherwise engaged on the night of Dec. 24. New York will be the site of The Ball, which has attracted revellers near and far for the past 10 years. Venue-hop in style between Avalon -- formerly the Limelight, and a church -- and the Park via limo service to get the most of the six DJs (including one in Avalon's bathroom), four dance floors and entrance to Avalon's inner sanctum -- the exclusive Spider Club.

8 p.m.-4 a.m. $25 (includes limo). About four hours from the Beltway at Avalon (660 Sixth Ave., 212-807-7780) and the Park (118 10th Ave., 212-352-3313), www.TheBall2004.com.
