SUN 12/5: Art, Shop, Latkes, Songs

I went to the Harvard Book Store Warehouse sale the first year, and there are a lot of books! If you have the fortitude, you may even find some gifts for people. The Somerville warehouse is open again this weekend.

There are no advance tix left for the Boston Music Awards at the Liberty Hotel, but there may be some available at the door ($20). Hang out with folks from the Boston music scene and hear a bunch of live performances. The shindig starts at 6pm. (I'm predicting Kingsley Flood will win in one of their categories.)


SUN 12/5

11am to 4pm
Fort Point Arts Community Holiday Sale
at Art at 12/Made in Fort Point, 12 Farnsworth St, Boston (Fort Point, next door to Flour Bakery & Cafe)
Whatever you buy

About 30 artists will display and selling their stuff like jewelry, paintings, prints, photography, ceramics/pottery, "paper arts", "functional textile art", and more.

There are other open-studio/holiday-sales this weekend in Charlestown and Hyde Park.

Look at this way -- buying gifts of art ensures that somebody else has bought the identical item for your loved one.

SUN 12/5

Noon to 7pm
Bazaar Bizarre
at Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St, Boston (South End)
$1 admission

Yeah, they want you to pay a dollar to go shopping. There will a lot of artsy-crafty vendors with loads of cool stuff. I've usually walked out with more stuff for myself than others. They have some shopping tips for people.

SUN 12/5

1pm to 3pm
Annual "Everybody Loves Latkes" Party
at Winthrop Park, about 50 JFK St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

If you're in Harvard Square, grab a free potato pancake. It's becoming an annual tradition for various nearby restaurants donate hundreds of latkes and condiments in the Chanukkah spirit.

SUN 12/5

Sarah Jaffe (11pm), Ben Weaver (10pm), Clara Bones (9:05pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

If you haven't heard Sarah Jaffe yet, there's a good chance you will eventually. So why not today? Top-notch singer-songwriters Jaffe and Ben Weaver are touring together, and they joined by our local Clara Bones.
