Heights Happenings: December 8- December 15, 2010

We all know that Saturday, December 11 is the Holy Grail of Heights Events. Lights in the Heights will bring thousands of people in to our amazing neighborhood. We'll get to show off our hospitality, creativity, love of fun, sense of community, and, yes, even the dreaded "quirkiness" we're no longer supposed to talk about. But, before you get your Santa suit on and climb on your motorized cooler, or gas up your art car, or put your kids in their red wagon with Christmas lights, or have your friends over for drinks and people watching, there are a couple other things going on in this quirky, quirky, quirky neighborhood this weekend.

  1. LOL! Watch out lady - that 22 year old kid that the HP was quoting might come haunt you and tell you how you are a bad, hypocritical, evil monster of a person because you don't want to live next door to a Wal-Mart!
