What is it about the impending new year that stirs up all kinds of hopes for self-improvement each year (only to slip away from February through November)? Right around now, many people are pledging to begin marathon Stairmaster sessions or start attending sweaty-palmed Toastmasters classes, while others are finally acting upon their nagging desire to start crafting just in time for holiday gift-giving. From bottle-cap lapel pins to homemade dog biscuits, some of us try a new hobby each year with varying degrees of success. This year, lets be honest: Weve clearly run out of time. Thats why a last-minute Holiday Trunk Show at Stage 84 (9118 W. State Road 84, Davie) is the perfect replacement. Snatch up awe-inspiring offerings from more than ten local vendors (from handmade jewelry and art to clothes and beautifully knitted finds) and your gift recipients will be none the wiser. The show runs from 7 to 10 p.m. , and there will be discounted holiday drinks all night. Call 954-474-5040, or visit stage84fl.com. No cover.
