If you’re like CHS, you probably aren’t totally feeling the holiday season yet. That’s cool. But next week, you better get ready to be festive.

Next Thursday night brings a double header of celebration to Capitol Hill including a very Pike/Pine venue — the Neighbours Alley.

Organizers from the effort to redesign the alley to enhance the neighborhood and surrounding streets are holding a party along with the monthly Capitol Hill Art Walk:

Neighbours Alley Celebration

It sounds like a good party:

  • We are going to have a really cool art project on a dumpster – we are going to do a vinyl wrap of a coloring book image and then folks who come out can work with the artist to color in the image.
  • We were originally just going to have one marching band but we’ve gotten so much interest, now it’s looking like we’ll have multiple marching bands.
  • We are going to have bowling down the alley.
  • Also, hot drinks and snacks and pretty lights and information about the long term plans for the space.

Just up the street, you’ll also find the Guilty Holiday Pleasures Party at Chophouse Row.

Meanwhile, Thursday the 13th in Volunteer Park brings the annual Holiday in the Park night of carols, free cookies, hot cocoa — and hundreds of glowing luminarias:

The annual Volunteer Park Trust-hosted celebration will surely finish the job of helping the neighborhood shift fully into holiday mode. Visit Shop the Hill to pick out my present ASAP.
