Two perfect holiday weekends | Nude drawing + gift basket party + football
Six things to do for the holidays
Friday, Dec 16
In one of those “Why didn’t we think of that?” moments, gift basket entrepreneur Kate Gross decided to organize Ms. Mint’s Holiday Bazaar so shoppers could make their own locally sourced gift baskets—wrapping and shipping included. Fill up your basket with products from more than 50 food makers and nonprofits, including Wild Child Granola, Ethically Engineered, Green Envee Organics and Salted Caramel. Grossinger City Autoplex, 1500 N Dayton St. 3–8pm; $5, kids free.
