Starting November 18th, there is no shortage of excitement and fun to be had, as you and your friends can expect music along with refreshments and events activities that will satisfy everyone’s interests! Just some of the many attractions and events you can expect to take part in include shopping on Small Business Saturday, evenings at the Woodmere Art Museum, as well as attending the Chestnut Hill Holiday Parade.

For a Night Out, Grab Some Festive Craft Beer

If you just want to relax with some friends after a long day (while still being festive, of course) head over to your local brewery for some craft beer and a good time with friends. During this time of year, specialty drinks are usually making their way onto the menu, which means now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a night out. One place that has an incredible selection of holiday treats and drinks is Revolution House in Old City. Here, you can sample signature cocktails like a Pumpkin-Tini and Hot Apple Pie Moonshine!

This post is brought to you by Big Bobble Hats. Having spent many years trying to find the perfect Beanie or Bobble Hat both on the ski slopes and in the great outdoors, it finally occurred to us to create our own! Our first set of hats were worn on a trip to Les Arc in 2010 and the feedback we received was fantastic, and Big Bobble Hats was born. Nearly 12 years later we now have over 100 styles of Big Bobble Hats! We have expanded our hat range to now include beanies, bucket hats and baseball caps. We are now also proud to sell clothing too. All of our products are proudly designed in Scotland, and named by our fans via naming competitions on our social media!
