I love this idea.

Joe Squared at the Power Plant is throwing a 'shared holiday party' on Dec. 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

So, let's say you have an office group that wants to get together for the holidays -- but no one wants to do the planning. Or, maybe your company isn't kicking up the cash for a big party. Either way, this would be just the thing. And if you don't like each other all that much, there will be other groups of potentially cooler people to interact with. You can come with friends, family or whomever you want.

The menu includes Joe Squared's pizza, risotto and salads along with a selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks. There are vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, too.

The all-inclusive price is $39.95. Guests are encouraged to bring a toy to be donated to the House of Ruth.
