We gave thanks. We ate. We drank. We gained ten pounds in a day. We put out the turkey fryer fires. We assaulted people in malls at midnight.
The holiday season is now officially in full swing.
We may have palm trees, mild winters, and, well, no snow, but we still know how to pull off the whole winter wonderland thing--otherwise known as the awesomeness of Santa's Enchanted Forest
If you're looking for a, um, classier way to bring in the holiday cheer, we would advise heading over to Christmas on Las Olas
From 5 to 10 pm tomorrow, Las Olas Boulevard will be transformed into a holiday mecca complete with carolers, a two story ice covered slope, ice skating rink, Santa photo booth, and, best of all, holiday bars. American Social
, Johnny V
, Big City Tavern
, The Riverside Hotel
, Tuscan Grill Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza
, Las Olas Wine Cafe
, and SoLita
will be participating.
Over 50 food, drink, and holiday booths will take over the street. Organizers are expecting to see about 40,000 people enjoying the festivities
This year, the annual holiday event is turning 50. To celebrate, Premier Beverage -- one of the event's sponsors -- will be rolling out the newest edition to its portfolio: Stoli Salted Caramel. The vodka will be served as a Christmas Karmeltini, which will only be found on Las Olas Boulevard this holiday.
The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are advised to park at the Riverside Hotel Garage.
