I am one of those terrible people that cannot get enough of Cards Against Humanity. For those of you that are not familiar with the game it is self dubbed as ‘a game for terrible people.’ The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.

Lucky for us The Highball has their own spin on the game and it’s happening tonight! Winners take home passes to Alamo Drafthouse, free drinks at The Highball and other fun prizes. So round up your friends and come out for a night of CAH, Highball style.

Admission: free

When: tonight, November 25th

Time: 8 – 9:50 pm

Location:
The Highball
1120 S. Lamar
Austin, Texas 78704

‘Tis the season for tree lightings, and the Domain is having a full day of fun and festivities at the annual Great Tree Lighting next Saturday.

Head up to the Domain to get into the holiday spirit and for a head start on this year’s shopping. They’ll have holiday activities including face painting, balloon twisting, caricature drawings, holiday crafts, and of course, photos with Santa. You’re never too old to sit on Santa’s lap in my opinion.

Once the sun goes down, the lighting ceremony will get underway. They’ll have recording artist Sunny Sweeny along with a youth choir singing songs of the season. There will also be a firework show after the lighting of the massive 40 foot tree!

The Domain Tree with Fireworks-1

All these festivities will surely have you caroling all the way home!

We’re giving away a VIP experience for a family of four. Family VIP access includes seating for the show, a gift for the kids, beer/wine/juice and light bites. Seating opens at 5pm.

To be entered to win, SHARE this post and tell us who you’d bring.

While you’re shopping, stop by Macy’s and write a letter to Santa and they’ll donate $1.00 for every letter received through Christmas Eve! http://wish.org/content/macys-believe-campaign

This weather is the best! Most people will probably call it a movie night but if you are looking to get out of the house, Twin Liquors is having a great Pinot 101 class tonight.. I am a huge wine-o, it must run in my family (hi Mom & Dad). I absolutely love a good glass of wine, but I really don’t know that much about it. I basically just drink something and I either like it or I don’t.

This class seems like an easy way to learn more about wine and have fun doing it. It will give you a chance to taste various types of wine and determine what you enjoy most. They also will help you with wine lingo so you can be a little more in the know when you talk about what wine you like!

Please RSVP with # of guests to: store60@twinliquors.com

Cost: free

When: today, November 5th

Time: 6:30-8:00 p.m.
