    Gibson Street Bar Gets Jolly With It

    And now that rockin' Gibson on South Lamar joins in with the jiggery jingles, featuring over-the-top holiday decor (a totally Instagrammable sleigh, FFS) and a slate of seasonal libations. (We're partial to the so-called Rum-Pa-Pa-Pum, because a mix of Sailor Jerry's, cinnamon-brown-sugar butter, clove, and honey is, woooo, powerfully delicious.) Bonus: live music from the Misfit Toys on Wednesday nights.

    Nickel City: Sippin' Santa

    Wait, Nickel City has done what? Turned itself into a sort of tiki-powered Polynesian holiday wonderland? Yes, until the year's end – with a raft of new themed cocktails among the classic oceanic gewgaws. (Kris Kringle Colada, anyone? How about a Rudolph Shoots the Curl?) And they'll be hosting a luau party every Saturday in December. Bonus: 10% of all sales go to Action Against Hunger.

    Olive & June: Holiday Desserts

    Can desserts ever be too delicious? Can they look too fancy? Or do you just love your friends and family so much that you would, for instance, include a few of these confectionary wonderments from Olive & June in your holiday celebrations? Pumpkin cheesecake bars topped with almond streusel and salted caramel, chocolate cake topped with chocolate glaze and white chocolate peppermint bark, gingerbread cake topped with almond streusel, vanilla orange glaze, and orange chips … OMG, are you drooling yet?
