The Weekender: December 19-21


And just like that – it’s the weekend before Christmas! We hope that you’ve had a wonderful week. Here are our top picks for a festive and cozy weekend.

Cookies for a Cause! This Sunday, swap cookies for a cause! The 4th annual swap will take place this Sunday in Fort Point. Over 10,000 cookies are expected to be swapped! For each cookie, $1 will be donated to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, which provides research grants to the leading pediatric cancer hospitals. Pssst – we are giving away two tickets for Sunday’s event — you still have a chance to win!

The Holiday Stage. This weekend is a great opportunity to experience the holidays at the theater! Step back into Victorian England with the Revels, take in the magic of The Nutcracker, or enjoy a Celtic Christmas Sojourn.

Enjoy the Splendor. There are few things better than simply enjoying the quiet that comes right before the holidays. I love grabbing a hot cocoa at L.A. Burdicks and walking through the Commonwealth Avenue Mall to take in the splendor of the lights. It really is such an amazing time of year! This weekend, take in the season with a skate around Frog Pond, a trip to Stone Zoo to view the annual ZooLights, or take a walk with a loved one to see all the twinkling lights!

Our Favorite Gift Items. If you are still looking to finish (or start!) your gift shopping, we have some ideas. You can see all our gift guides here!
