For what's sure to be the classiest way to say goodbye to 2012, rapper and beatboxer Biz Markie is appearing at this day party dubbed Holiday Heat. Although he hasn't been much in the public eye much since his late '80s hit "Just a Friend," he's been beefing up his resume with appearances on the kids' show Yo Gabba Gabba! (check the "Biz 4 Da Kids" of his website) and recording parodies of "Hey Jude" and "Believe It or Not" to sell as outgoing phone messages. The dress code for lovers and "just friends" alike is "chic and fashionable."
