5 THINGS TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEK IN GASTOWN
Written by Gastown Admin
Holiday Warm Up at Guilt & Company
To anyone looking to warm themselves with sweaters and brandy, come to Guilt & Co on Monday, December 23, for one last hurrah before the holidays.
The night will warm the blackest hearts, with live performances from Parlour Roller & Teagan Johnston. Parlour Roller is a brand new musical collaboration between Skye Wallace and Benjamin Doerksen, a unique breed of intimate Canadian folk. Like an old record player in a wood fire-lit room, if you miss it, you’ll feel lonely and cold. Oh, and by the way, there’s no cover. Visit here for full details.
Orphans Christmas at the Lamplighter
The Lamplighter is looking for volunteers to help give back to those in need. All that is required from you is to dress warm, show up at 11 a.m. on Christmas Day and be prepared to assemble a few dozen meals that you will be taking throughout the city on foot to hand to our city’s less fortunate. Volunteers will be rewarded with a fresh, warm turkey dinner with all the trimmings at the end of the day, a Christmas present from Santa himself and an evening of libations and good cheer with your friends at The Lamplighter throughout the night.
If you are available on Christmas afternoon and want to join some other “Christmas Orphans” in spreading some good cheer to those in need, then please RSVP to Dh@donnellygroup.ca.
