Most of us will be at home for Christmas but if you happen to be out and about there are a few things going on around town.
If you are looking for a quality holiday meal, drunk uncle free, Triple George is open Christmas Day, offering a pre-fixed four-course meal featuring Oysters Rockefeller with smoked bacon or beef Carpaccio for appetizers, soup and salad, rack of lamb, herb-roasted chicken, or seafood cioppino for the main event, and New York cheesecake and crème brûlée for dessert. $60 per person.
Better than milk and cookies, Oak and Ivy’s Merry and Bright winter cocktail menu is influenced by flavors from around the world along with traditional American holiday flavors such as the Enlightened Is This Chai, an Indian-inspired cocktail with rum and chai tea over Fernet Vittone reduction, and the Yuletide Quaff made with muddled cranberries shaken with Hendrick’s Gin and Amaro Montenegro capped with lemon-lime foam. Open from 3 to 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
It’s the last chance for little ones to get their picture taken with Santa at Container Park from 5 to 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve. But before photos see the final free live performance of The Nutcracker at 2 to 3:45 p.m. with dancers from The Metropolitan Opera, NYC Ballet, Alvin Ailey, The Washington Ballet, and Las Vegas Ballet Theater.
On Saturday, December 26, Blue Sky Yoga in The Arts Factory accepts donations for their Christmas wind down class from 4:30 to 6 p.m. But don’t get too comfortable; New Year’s Eve is around the corner (they’ll have a yoga class for that, too).
