Friday
S’mores, Boozy Coffee and Fire
FIRE STARTER

S’mores, Boozy Coffee and Fire

Patio season is officially behind us—or so it seemed. But the Nodding Donkey is luring you to its outdoor fire pits and its new pit-friendly menu with s’mores kits, hot toddies, doughnuts, boozy coffee and seven new scotches. Though we had you at s’mores kits.

Your Tree, Delivered
O CHRISTMAS TREE

Your Tree, Delivered

Christmas trees are work: The chopping. The carrying. The dousing of the tree with gravy (you’ve never been a traditionalist). Here to help: Christmas Tree Wonderland, which will deliver you a Noble Fir and a wreath, set ’em up and decorate with lights and ornaments. Delegation is a beautiful thing.

Saturday
Bill Simmons Book Signing
SPORTS GUY

Bill Simmons Book Signing

Bill Simmons, aka ESPN’s Sports Guy, is signing copies of his epic new Book of Basketball at Borders, where you can ask him his opinion on everything from LeBron to Cuban. Maybe he’ll tweet about you.

Dec 11, 4pm, Borders, 10720 Preston Rd, Suite 1018, 214-363-1977

Monday
12 Days of Tamales
DIRTY DOZEN

12 Days of Tamales

You’ve always liked the 12 days of Christmas—especially that ninth day with the dancers. But you’ve always thought they could use more queso. So Urban Taco is cooking up a new tamale every day until Christmas Eve. The Potato Zucchini Tamales make great stocking stuffers.

Dec 13-24, Urban Taco, 3411 McKinney Ave, 214-922-7080

Wednesday
Champagne, Art and Yoga
BUBBLY

Champagne, Art and Yoga

Yoga. Not your preferred workout. (That would be glissading.) But if someone were offering a little art and champagne to go with it, you might just grab your favorite Spandex-clad yogi and give it a try. And hey, the Stay ZaZa Art House is making just such an offer. Namaste.
