On the List | Santa in Pike/Pine, Drawing Jam, Bite of Greece, Conservatory train, psychedelic music fest

It’s high season for Capitol Hill social events! CHS has already told you about the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Seattle University on Thursday, Repeal Day bar shenanigans on Thursday, Holiday Hotspot Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Gage Academy’s annual, all-day Drawing Jam on Saturday. Also, remember to Shop Local, Shop the Hill if you are in a buying mood to keep locally-owned businesses in the neighborhood. But wait, there’s more.

(More) Weekend Highlights
The Greek Orthodox Church on 13th hosts Bite of Greece on Friday (4 – 9p) and Saturday (12 – 7p). The event includes music, food, crafts, wine tasting and a taverna. Indulge in authentic souvlaki, gyro, lamb sandwiches, greek pastries, wine and more. Opa!

conservatoryFriday brings the unveiling of the Volunteer Park Conservatory’s annual holiday display. The Conservatory’s Open House highlights holiday decor and model trains in the Seasonal House, and features the largest tinplate toy train ever produced. The Open House 5 – 8pm includes entertainment, light refreshments and cocoa — plus free admission. Whoo whoo!

freakoutPsychedelic Holiday Freakout is a two day, four-venue, 38-band music fest on Friday and Saturday on Capitol Hill and the CD. With a super-affordable passes at just $10 for a 1-day pass  or $21 for a two-day pass, you’ll get an Alexander Hamilton worth of music checking out bands such as Tea Cozies, Vox Mod, Atomic Bride or the Comettes at Highline, Therapy Lounge, Waid’s, and Velocity Dance Center.

Check our community calendar for even more reasons to bundle up and get out of the house this weekend. Remember your Chapstick lip balm/protector; the mercury is dropping.
