‘Twas STUFF TO DO before Christmas, and all through the blog, not a creature was stirring, not even a frog. 

The presents are bought and the monies all spents, and THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF EVENTS.

There are lots you can see and lots you can hear. It’s better than sitting at home on your rear. 

Holiday cheer is here, wall to wall. Let’s not drink too much, for fear that you fall. 

This shtick is too hard for me to continue, so here’s what’s going on, in select local venues…

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM.  Friday That High Country Revival takes the stage. Saturday Ronald and The RayGunz perform at the beloved bookstore/cafe/art gallery.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff this weekend  to tell you about. Thursday Andrew Pauley brings his roots-infused Blues to the state at 9 PM. Friday Tim Courts plays during happy hour. Sunday Bo McMillion celebrates Christmas Eve from 9:00 to 11:30 PM. We have graphics below for the rest of the weekend shows at The Glass.

Please remember that the pandemic is not over yet. It’s still a going concern with the ‘rona surging again. And now there are seasonal allergies, the flu, Dasher, Donner and Blitzen all coked up and running amok, petulant elves complaining endlessly about kids wanting iPhones instead of toys, giant media conglomerates copulating in the streets and other damned good reasons to be careful. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

Keep in mind that all shows are subject to change or be cancelled at the last minute.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for the weekend, roughly in order, right below the jump…
