Here’s to the Week Ahead: Dec. 14-21
Our week ahead continues to elicit festive feelings, what with winter decor, holiday cocktails and Christmas music, too!
Winter Wilder-Land Décor – MS Museum of Natural Science – Ongoing
See the museum decorated for the holiday season with 30+ wintery, decorated indoor trees and shimmering “snowflake” décor that will make the weather seem refreshingly chilly on your next museum visit. Admire the seasonal dioramas of Mississippi wildlife on permanent display, take a selfie in the Winter Wilder-Land photo opportunity and then hit the outdoor trails for a real winter’s day walk. This is not an event but an invitation to visit the museum.
Cocktails and Cookies – Virtual – Thursday – 7 p.m.
Led by Babalu’s drink master, Michelle Laverty, the 30-minute session will walk you through how to make a green apple sangria (“How the Grinch Stole 2020″ Apple Sangria) and ginger hibiscus cranberry moonshine mule that can be scaled up to share with pals. Tickets are available here.
Look and Learn with Hoot | The Garden of Monsieur Monet – Virtual – Friday 10:30 a.m.
Look and Learn is a monthly literacy and art-making program for children aged 5 and under with their families.
