"Holiday Happy Hour" Shopping on Wednesday
To encourage us to get out and buy our holiday decorations and presents early, Madison Valley merchants are sponsoring a special extended-shopping event tomorrow evening, 5:00 to 7:30 pm, with many businesses offering special sales and "festive treats" to those who partake. Among those participating is Seattle Fast Frame, which is offering shoppers "hot drinks and nibbles" during the event. Restaurants in the Valley, meanwhile, will be extending their Happy Hours to 7:30 for the occasion.
In addition, several Madison Valley merchants are open special holiday hours or are running specials throughout the holiday shopping season. For example, Kate's Day Spa is offering a free steam bath to area residents who purchase a gift certificate valued at $40 of more, and City People's Garden Store (which has a special selection of holiday plants and gifts, as well as Christmas trees) has extended its evening hours (6-8 pm, weekdays).
And in case all the holiday shopping and the stress of the season starts getting to you, Inner Renewal & The Healthy Path in the Arboretum Court just coincidentally is hosting an event on December 12 (7:30 pm) having nothing whatsoever to do with Christmas but everything to do with peace on earth (or at least inner peace): a Tibetan singing bowls concert and inner meditation called Resounding the Peaceful Path (call for reservations).
The complete list of Madison Valley merchants can be found on the newly redesigned Madison Valley website here.
