    Veracruz All Natural: La Posada Party

Enjoy traditional ponche and buñuelos among the festive camaraderie, surrounded by poinsettias and piñatas, accompanied by live music from Cienfuegos and La Moña Loca.

    Getting Fluffy with the Lipstick

    Sure, this busy Fluffery is a fine thing all year 'round – but now, with bourbon-walnut and orange-chestnut tarts and sparkling meringue drops in pistachio and peppermint, they're a highlight of the season. And today the confectionary is hosting a pop-up by Lip Service XO – their experts will whip you up your very own bespoke lipstick shade.

    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.
