I botched it last week and forgot to plug the KUT Holiday Sing-a-long. We went last year and it was a lot of fun. This year was good too, although the warm temperatures made it a little harder to get into the spirit. It was either that or the cranky screaming toddler we brought with us.

It probably doesn’t need any plugging, but Trail of Lights begins Sunday and runs until December 23rd. Last year was the first year that we missed since having kids. I’ll let you in on a little family secret. We generally avoid the long traffic lines by parking on one of the side streets by Green Mesquite, having dinner there around 6, and then walking to Zilker. It makes for a bit of trek on the way back, but I’d rather be walking than sitting in the car, especially in this weather. (For those that read this more than a week from now, it’s supposed to be 76 and sunny on Sunday. Not that I’m rubbing it in or anything.)

    Tomorrow night only (Saturday), from dusk until 9:00 or thereabouts, a trail of lights on a smaller scale is available. In Stacy Park, the Girl Scouts will be leading carols and serving hot cider. Look for the lit luminarias and bring some non-perishables for the Capital Area Food Bank. It all begins at the 2100 block of East Side Drive.
