Let's hope tomorrow night isn't a rainy one as predicted, because the North End is celebrating "Buon Natale," its holiday stroll, from 6pm to 11pm. Nearly 20 stores, galleries, and studios will open their doors to shoppers with special sales and tasty treats on hand. As always, the neighborhood will run a "passport" program, where if you receive a stamp for every participating venue you are entered to win a gift basket containing goodies from every business.
Shake the Tree will offer a 20% discount on select party dresses. From 7pm to 9pm, sample Jojo's Raw Chocolate. Savas Studios will host Santa and serve baked goods. Additional apparel stops include in-jean-ius, Twilight Boutique, LIT Boutique, and Luke Aaron. Swing by Officina 189, A Matter of Face, Sedurre, Heart & Sole, and SOL Optics for the finishing accessory and beauty touches.
