The Weekender // Dec. 20th - 22nd
Happy Winter, Durangotangs! The first day of winter is this Saturday the 21st, though with the cold we’ve been having, winter’s icy touch has already settled into every nook and cranny of our town. If you find yourself stuck on the couch wrapped in a blanket, we promise that it’s worth it to leave your warm abode to join these community events. Take a peak at what the Durango area has in store for you this weekend.
Maker and Artisan Gifts - TONIGHT, 3-7pm
This afternoon and tonight is the First Annual Holiday Makers Market at Pine Needle Dry Goods. Head to Pine Needle on Main Ave to gather amazing holiday gifts for your loved ones (and yourself!). From jewelry, jams, beaded and leather earrings, children’s clothing and gifts, all the way to artisan soil and wooden gifts, this market has something for everyone.
Wine, Music, and Laughs - Saturday, Music from 5-7pm, Comedy from 7-9pm
This Saturday night, enjoy your favorite glass of wine (or three, we aren’t judging) to warm up your insides at Eno Wine Bar. From 5-7pm, the Wild Rose Gange, known for their songs of grit, grins, and grace, will be performing at Eno. Directly following their live performance, the Cozy Christmas Comedy night will begin from 7-9pm! Tell the bartenders to keep the wine flowing as you dance and laugh the night away.
