Wind Down / Wound Up

Alas the weekend is finally here! We are SO close to Christmas and I feel totally unprepared, but what's new about that? I feel a little lacking since we literally haven't posted any holiday-related items on the blog yet, but we're hoping to remedy that next week. Kerry has her Santa collection up and I grabbed my Christmas tree even though there are more important items to put away in my new apartment, priorities, am I right?
 
So here's hoping you have a relaxing, albeit fun weekend. There's plenty going on, so while the work week is winding down, WO + SF and crew are wound up for the weekend!
 
FRIDAY December 13th
  • It's quite the spoooooky Friday the 13th. Tonight you can find me at O'Leaver's for what's going to be an awesome metal show. You know the old addage - when life gets you down, get your face melted off.
  • Apparently there's a new music venue I was unaware of - Venue 51 down on what looks like 19th and St. Mary's. Could possibly be the old all-ages DIY space (for which the name is escaping me at this moment)? South Dakota natives Worried Mothers play here tonight with Snake Island! and Dereck Higgins
  • If you don't feel like heading to a show, then go on down to Indian Oven's newly remodeled Speakeasy for a craft cocktail and a dark space to chat with some close friends.
  • While you're in the area, stop by downtown's newest brewery and distillery - Borgata for their official grand opening! Tours of the facilities begin at 5, 7 & 9 pm.
  • Get into the giving Christmas spirit down at House of Loom who is helping to bring in donations for Toys for Tots. All proceeds will go to the non-profit and if you bring a toy, your admission is free!
SATURDAY December 14th
SUNDAY December 15th
  • There's an ugly sweater run downtown today. Not sure why someone would pay $40 to run around in the cold in an ugly sweater, but I guess that's because I don't understand why anyone would want to run, anywhere #beinghealthyisgoodbutatwhatcost?
  • Head to Petshop in Benson around 4 today for Writer's Group and then join the bunch for beer and pizza at Jake's following.
  • If you want to keep your weekend buzz going, O'Leaver's is the spot again as they're hosting a tasting of High West whisky. I can attest that the double rye is prettay, prettay, prettay good while the campfire whisky does indeed, taste like campfire in case that's your thing.
Last night I was Kerry's "date" to her company's holiday party where they played a bunch of Price is Right games. It was a blast and while Kerry only won a quesadilla maker (by default) and no one thought to download the Price is Right music, we had a jolly ol' time. Also, I think Kerry's co-worker's face kind of perfectly sums up the night -
