Make sure you don't spend all your money at tonight's Beacon Hill and Southie strolls—the North End's finest boutiques are celebrating the 6th annual Buon Natale holiday stroll tomorrow, Friday, December 7. Things to remember: the charming waterfront neighborhood has award winning shopping, Lulu's, cannoli and adorable old Italian men. If competitive shopping is your thing, grab a snazzy travel inspired passport and have it stamped at participating venues for a chance to win a gift basket of goodies from North End vendors. Stores will start the festivities at 7pm and stay open late until 11pm.
