Good news for people who like to drink while shopping! Loreley Williamsburg will be using their spacious beer garden to host a holiday gift market over the next two weekends. As you can see from the list of vendors below, there will be something for everybody on your gift list, from natural cosmetic users to comic book fans and all those chutney lovers in between. More importantly, you can sip on Loreley’s mulled wines and hot cider drinks while you scope out the goods. If those drinks aren’t your thing, there’s always Loreley’s extensive list of German beers to wet your whistle. Feeling ambitious? Pick up a beermaking kit from Bitter & Esters so you can make your own brews all winter long. Oh, the possibilities!
What’s this? Another Christmas gift market? Why, yes it is! The creative minds at 3rd Ward will also be hosting their own Handmade Holiday Craft Fair this Saturday, which will feature two whole floors of handmade gifts that are sure to knock the Christmas socks off your friends and family. The event will also feature “jazzy brass from Chia’s Dance Party, lovely croons from Mieka Pauley, and cheap seasonal cocktails from Red Jacket Orchards.” Don’t forget to RSVP for the event, and enjoy your weekend of socially acceptable drunk shopping while supporting local businesses.
