12/14-12/17: NATIVE’s Holiday Party Roundup

With the holidays fast approaching, party invites are starting to pile up on top of each other. And while we know you’d love to down your share of eggnog and gingerbread at every get-together possible, we have some recommendations to put at the top of your list.

Far Out Holidaze Market for YEAH!: Tennessee Brew Works is hosting this free holiday market, benefitting Youth Empowerment through Arts and Humanities (YEAH!) and featuring tasty bites and local vendors.

Holidays With Pageant: Proceeds from this Christmas classics benefit concert go toward Room In The Inn, with plenty of friends performing and a discount on tickets if you buy online.

Darlin’ Bedroom Holiday Gift Guide: Slip into something a little more comfortable at Darlin’s Bedroom Holiday Gift Guide party, complete with complimentary champagne, discounted lingerie, and a $200 gift certificate raffle.

Elephant Gallery Holiday Bazaar: Elephant Gallery is hosting a week-long holiday market, and it’ll feature some local artists that should be familiar to NATIVE readers, like Salt Ceramics, Paul Collins, Brett Douglas Hunter, Marcus Maddox, Chelsea Velaga, and more. Come out on 12/17 for the opening, and don’t miss the closing party on 12/22, which will have donuts, mimosas, and Proper Bagel bagels. Need we say more?
