Christmas shop now or die trying Agenda Recommended

When: Sat., Nov. 26 2011

Now that Thanksgiving is over and you successfully ate and drank yourself into a happy stupor, it's high time you started dropping large sums of cash with reckless abandon at local holiday markets. The annual Bucktown Bazaar at the Holstein Park field house (2200 N. Oakley) is open both today and tomorrow from 11 AM till 5 PM and features "everything from irreverent, young DIY crafters to elegant established artisans" (that's cool, I think). The Rogers Park Holiday Market also sets up shop today at the Loyola Park field house (1230 W. Greenleaf) from 10 AM till 3 PM. Get your gifts early and avoid being the dolt who's stuck waiting in an ungodly line at Best Buy on Christmas Eve (aka hell on Earth). —Kevin Warwick
