    Antonelli’s Cheese Shop: Classes & Date Nights

    Yes, we’re telling you about these events at Austin’s favorite cheese shop early because 1) they’re so damned fun and informative and tasty, and 2) they – because of the previous reason – tend to sell out in advance like whoa! So start prepping your fun-time schedule this year for the likes of Cheese 101: The Seven Styles of Cheese (Jan. 8), Cheese Date Night (Jan. 10 & 24), Soft Cheeses and Bubbles (Jan. 11 & 22), and that much-buzzed-about Cheese-y Bus Tour (Jan. 26).
    $40-125.

    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.
