The Daily Shortlist December 30
The holiday party at the Ginger Brew Ha-Ha Extravaganza! has more holiday cheer than the one your office is throwing with a gingerbread house building competition where prizes will be awarded, bands will play including Old Books, Kabona Zombies, Capita Clip, and a secret headliner, while all this can be yours for an entrance fee of FREE. Keeping the night going, try El Viejo Yayo for dinner. This gorgeous and warm restaurant has an elegant dining room and an affordable menu offering Dominican/Latin cuisine. The outside of Buttermilk Bar may look non-descript, but looks are deceiving . . . just not in this case, as this low-key watering hole is where you can grab a cheap drink in a friendly atmosphere, while playing a board game or two. With a near insane menu of chocolates from coffee and tea to delectable dessert, and even beer, The The Chocolate Room is a great way to end the night on a high note.
