Things to do for December 16, 2010

The Weekender

Naughty Santas, the Candy Cane Cocktail and Gratis Pizza

The weekend won’t leave you for Philly.

Thursday
Ties with a Secret
PERK ALERT

Ties with a Secret

The eggnog: spiked. The mistletoe: securely hung. The gifts: well... you’re almost there. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with an exclusive selection of winter-ready FIGS ties. Which leaves you with more time for quality-testing that eggnog.

CANDY STRIPER

Unveiling the Candy Cane Cocktail

Candy canes can be many things: candy, lawn ornaments, walking sticks for cookies shaped like men. And now Urban Taco’s making them into cocktails by crushing them up, mixing them with tequila, Kahlua and orange liqueur, and pouring them over ice. You’ve always said your candy cane needed more tequila.

Reverse Happy Hour at Lumi
REVERSE IT

Reverse Happy Hour at Lumi

The happy hour: a sacred institution that occurs from 6 to 9pm on any given night. Or so it was, as Lumi’s introducing a “reverse happy hour,” with $4 empanadas and $5 jalapeño margaritas from 3 to 6:30pm and 9 to 11pm. Consider it your pre- and post-happy hour happy hour.

Mon-Thu, 3-6:30pm and 9-11pm, Lumi, 3407 McKinney Ave, 214-979-2424

Saturday
Free Champagne for the Naughty
BUBBLY

Free Champagne for the Naughty

You’ve been extremely nice in 2010. Or maybe you haven’t. Either way, Four Lounge is hosting a bubbly-fueled Naughty Santa Party and pouring free champagne for all the lady Santas from 7 to 8:30pm. Something tells us there’s more naughtiness in your future.

Dec 18, 7pm-2am, $20 charity donation, Four Lounge, 2418 Allen St, 214-871-2626

Wednesday
The Running of the Santas
RUN RUN RUDOLPH

The Running of the Santas

You can always use another excuse to jog in your Santa suit. Something like the Jingle Bell Run, where you can run 3.2 miles, white beard and all, before heading to a beer-and-pizza-fueled after-party at the Anatole. That Santa hat headband should come in handy right about now...

Next Thursday
Free Cocktails at Three Sheets
TO RECEIVE

Free Cocktails at Three Sheets

You’ve always said good things come in small, cocktail glass–shaped packages. Three Sheets agrees—they’re hosting their first-ever holiday bash with free fire-oven pizzas and free house cocktails. Better yet, you don’t even have to unwrap the cocktails.
