Lining up in the dark to wrestle crazed shoppers for discounted socks and tree trimmings? No thanks. I’ll be sleeping in on “Black Friday” and then peacefully counting the days until Dec. 12.
That Saturday, from noon to 5 p.m., House Spirits will host its annual Holiday Booze Bazaar — a chance to shop for the tastiest gifts ever, in the form of offerings from a range of local distillers, as well as local cheesemakers and charcutiers. This year’s bazaar is extra-special, because it’s also the official debut of House Spirits’ new whiskey. Add in food carts and a circus tent (?!), and this is definitely the holiday shopping event I’m holding out for. And I have a feeling Santa will be there to pick up a bottle or two for me, too.
