Missed the tree lighting at Rockefeller Plaza and snoozed through the festivities in downtown D.C.? No worries.
You can still watch the twinkling lights illuminate Dec. 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Rockville Town Square. Once NBC’s Eun Yang flips the switch, shop to the holiday sounds of the Walter Johnson High School Choir, Dance Studio and Rockville Musical Theater Center.
You can even visit with Santa, but don’t rely on him. Get inside the stores for mix of holiday specials. Here’s a sampling:
Receive a Frasier Fir votive candle for every $35 you spend and sample treats from Stonewall Kitchen
Buy six scarves or pashminas and get one free. All will be priced at $8.99.
Pick up a warm drink and coupons.
Get 20 percent off all Brooks Nightlife apparel
Try making some jewelry and sample Women’s Bean cookies
Receive 20 percent off one item
Bethesda Row is offering a generous share of seasonal events as well.
From now through Dec. 11, donating a coat to Urban Chic will net you a 20 percent discount on a full-priced item. Receive 15 percent off for each additional coat donated. The coat drive benefits the Women’s Housing Coalition.
Tomorrow night, Dec. 9, you can treat the cook in your life to signed copies of José Andres’s cookbooks and DVDs. The chef will be appearing at Jaleo from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. with copies of Made in Spain, Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America as well as Tapas Deck: 50 Little Dishes (cooking cards—great gift idea) and Made in Spain—the DVD version from his PBS show.
And, of course, there’s more to come. We’ll keep you posted.
