Arlene’s Favorite Festivities for December!

by arlene on December 7, 2012

Happy Holidays!

Hoping everyone has already paid the first installment of their property taxes.  Monday, December 10th is the final day to pay your property taxes without penalty. You can do this online (for a fee of 2.5%) by visiting the Assessor’s Office.
There are so many festive ways to spend this weekend! Here are a links to a few of my favorites:
You can enjoy snowfall on Saturday, 10 – 3 pm in North Berkeley! There will also be latkes both Sat. & Sunday and other festivities through December:
Enjoy Open Studios throughout Berkeley this weekend and next. This is the 22nd annual tour of the amazing talent in our city!
The KPFA Crafts fair is now at the Concourse Exhibition Center in SF 10-6 both days this weekend. Some exceptionally talented artisans exhibit here.
There is so much wonderful holiday music and dance being performed in the Bay Area. The link will take you to information about some favorites, including the Oakland Gospel Choir, the Tallis Scholars, and many performance of The Messiah. We’ll be heading next week to a performance of the SF Ballet Nutcracker, a real treat! Or check out “a fresh retelling” of this story by the Berkeley Ballet Theater with performances the next two weekends.
And I can’t miss mentioning local businesses owned by clients of mine:
For a great exhibition of local vintage copper pieces, visit California Historical Design. The exhibition and sale has been extended through December 15th, and a great way to get an in-depth education about the wealth of copper pieces produced in our local area.
Vintage European Posters will be open the next two weekends. Check them out as you visit festive Fourth Street for a great brunch at Bette’s. For the best soft ice cream visit Sketch, where if ice cream this time of year doesn’t work for you, their hot chocolate or cider might just warm you up!
Whatever activities you choose, I hope you enjoy all the special joys of this season!
