With only one weekend left, Christmas is fast approaching. For the edition of Freeloader Friday, we have tons of special events featuring local gifts for gift givers who like to procrastinate. Need a drink after all that shopping? We suggest putting on your ugliest holiday sweater and heading over to the Lowertown SantaCon for a drink with like-minded elves, sprites, reindeer, and tipsy patrons.

For those you couldn't care less about the holiday season we've got plenty of secular stuff to celebrate, including CD-release parties, art openings, early morning rock shows, and even a vegan cookie exchange. Come on in and take a look!
