All right, it's crunch time. Christmas is in three goddamn days and you still haven't finished shopping. Bitter Betty Bazaar Holiday Pop-Up Shop is giving you one last chance to shop local. There'll be loads of leather goods, spices, home decor, candles, bath products, prints, vintage stuff, and more. Bonus: they're serving boozy hot chocolate. Maybe procrastination isn't so bad. It's all happening today at Innertown Pub.
It's Day 22 of the Lifetime Christmas movie siege. The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, described by former Reader critic Dave Kehr as "Preston Sturges's affably blasphemous version of the Nativity," is the sugarplum antidote. It plays at the Siskel Film Center.
Redmoon Theater hosts its annual Winter Pageant tonight. Suzanne Scanlon writes, "One of the highlights of Christmas in Chicago is this annual Redmoon event, this year featuring a cast of 40 dancers, acrobats, clowns, one aerialist, and an 'epic surf instrumental band.'"
