5. Morally Suspect, Mentally Unhinged
7 p.m. Saturday, December 13, at UNIT 1, 1202 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth. No cover. Visit Facebook.
UNIT1 presents an art show this weekend that urges participants and artists to get in touch with their dark sides. The Facebook event page says artists will "unabashedly explore the extremities of human behavior" -- which sounds fun -- and uses word combos like "hallucinatory nightmares" and "bipolar media distraction machine." As part of that machine, we'd love to distract you from your mundane existence and direct you to this very cool Lake Worth hotspot on Saturday night for some serious artwork and serious socializing.
4. Snow Owl Market: Holiday Street Festival
5 p.m., Friday, December 12, at Feldman Park &
3 Ave., Between 4 and 6 Street, Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Feeling the pressure of holiday shopping but thinking about the mall gives you hives? Then this event is just screaming your name.
The Snow Owl Market infuses holiday shopping, food, music and fun this Friday at Feldman Park. Instead of claustrophobic dressing rooms and driving around endlessly for a really far away parking spot, it has plenty of open space and tons of free(!) parking. It's shopping at its best without the crowded, crazed mall-goers but with holiday lights, live music, Christmas carol karaoke, and DIY holiday activities.
It's a great time and place to buy local because pop-up shops will feature wares by Fort Lauderdale businesses and boutiques. There's no need to pack snacks or a flask because there will be beer and over 15 local food trucks, including vegan options will be rolling on through.
