MAINSTREAMING: WHAT’S HAPPENING IN ‘REAL LIFE’ ON THE MAINLAND?

BUY | Chippo
The manufacturer’s website copy is too good not to share verbatim: “The glorious lovechild of golf and cornhole: Chippo. We’ve combined the old fashioned, beer-slugging, tailgate-dominating, sunshine-basking goodness of games like cornhole with the gentlemanly, giddiness-inducing, side-betting beauty of golf.” $189 @ Chippogolf.com.

WATCH | NYE on ABC
This year, New York’s Times Square will be closed to the public due to COVID-19 restrictions. But everyone will get a great show. As usual, ABC will air live with host Ryan Seacrest presiding over the musical performances by Jennifer Lopez and Jimmie Allen. Plus, Cyndi Lauper and Billy Porter (who collaborated on the Broadway musical “Kinky Boots”) have something special planned. Watch on ABC.

LISTEN | Diana Krall Christmas Songs
There is no shortage of mainstream artists’ holiday albums, but Krall’s belongs near the top. Full of classics, from “White Christmas” to “Let It Snow,” this collection includes maybe the best vocal version of “Christmas Time Is Here.” Holiday mood guaranteed.
