Three Holiday Events to Squeeze in Before Christmas
Many of Georgetown's most popular holiday events are behind us, but here are three you might just want to check out.
Though events like Merriment in Georgetown and the Washington Harbour tree-lighting ceremony are long over, there are still a few festive events you can check out if you need a little holiday cheer.
1. Santa + Pets = Perfect combination. When fido is not barking up the chimney at the big guy, the two actually get along quite well. Stop by Vineyard Vines Thursday, Dec. 16 for dog photos with Santa from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome to attend and dog photos with Santa will be a $20 donation to Washington Humane Society. Owners can enjoy champagne, hors d'oeuvres and discounts!
2. Chocolate + Kids = Happy campers. Enjoy a tea ceremony and watch your kids learn the art of chocolate making at Tudor Place. Tickets are still available for the 10 a.m. session on Saturday, Dec. 18.
3. Christmas lights + Cars = Tacky holiday delight. Flying Dog and Brightest Young Things are partnering for a mobile holiday lights extravaganza Saturday evening beginning at 7 p.m. at Jack's Boathouse in Georgetown. Enjoy hot cider and cupcakes from CakeLove made with Flying Dog's "Gonzo Imperial Porter." Then join the parade down K St. to Rock Creek Pkwy. stopping at Politics and Prose for a reading of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." Decorate your car (or bike) for the holiday with lights and greenery and join the parade.
