Dance the Apocalypse in Zurich, F*ck the Maya in Paris, have a Happy Finish in Budapest or apocalyptic pre-drinks in Poland: even if you don't believe in the Mayan prophecy that the world is going to end on 21 December 2012, the thought of never having a hangover ever again is enough reason to celebrate. Here's a selection of some of the venues where you can practise your end-of-the-world chatup lines this weekend

Amsterdam, Netherlands
