In case you hadn’t noticed, my wonderful coworkers have been working double time coming up with excellent gift ideas, but I think Ryan Connor just posted my favorite over on the D Home blog: a set of two beautiful copper Moscow mule mugs. Hint, hint.
If you’re lucky enough not to have to work today and you just happen to visit the new Perot Museum, the new downtown location of Meso Maya is open at last. Alternatives to the Wolfgang Puck monopoly are a must, so I’m pleased about this development. Otherwise, the Turtle Creek Chorale offers the second performance of their concert of traditional Christmas music, Comfort & Joy, at the Meyerson Symphony Center. If you missed it last week, this is your last chance to hear the 250 harmonious voices before the TCC veers more naughty than nice. And for obvious reason, cold weather makes me want spicy curries. I want to try Sakhuu, the new Thai place over on Bryan Street, but alas this will have to wait for a day that’s not a Monday. Mai’s is my pre-Arts District show cold-weather stalwart, as you know, since it’s quick and comfortingly delicious.
And speaking of holiday shopping, Oil & Cotton offers yet another opportunity to get things done with Mom’s Shop-O-Rama tonight. There will be wine and cheese (these are the magic words for me), plus handmade toys, art supplies, creativity kits, and more. Basically, everything you could possibly want for your little urchin, plus free gift wrapping. One of our best new bars of 2012, The Foundry, is perfect for eating and drinking, with or without the whole family.
For more to do this evening, go here.
