The holiday shopping parties are revving up around the city, filled with promises of merriment and good deals. And though holly is great and all, it's clear that retailers are hoping you'll deck the halls with new merch. We'll let you know about those of interest, and even if your pocketbook is not exactly overflowing, you can at least grab some spiked punch along the way.
Monday, December 15 from 10am-7pm, Cristophe Salon (348 North Beverly Drive) will be offering a whopping 50% off salon services, plus bites and cocktails.
