IT’S HERE AGAIN! The Christmas of dog events is finally, once more, here upon us. Be amazed as you are confronted with the utmost doggie styles, from a dog dressed as a T-rex to another dog dressed as Donald Trump, which I assume will be a popular choice. Spend a day in pure canine delight.

It can be tough to get motivated to go to yoga class. I own two yoga mats myself, but I haven’t been to yoga in… two… years? Wow, that’s sad. Perhaps this event, which combines yoga with pumpin’ jams and free refreshments, will be just what I need to get back into the bendin’ and the posin’.

The Nosferatu of the early 1990s! If you’re me, or someone like me, you were OBSESSED with this movie as a kid. It had everything you could want: funny ladies, spooky music, the intriguing word “virgin,” and a cute kitty that turned into a ~cute boy~. Enjoy actors playing along with the movie and a drinking game with some of your favorite lines!
