Not Voiced by Robin Williams

Big Blue GenieThe Christmas Industrial Complex would have you believe there are only 3 days left to endear yourself to loved ones by finding that perfect gift. Even though nothing says “I care” like fighting crowds and paying full retail at the mall, there are still plenty of other options out there for the last-minute shopper.

For those interested in the unique offerings of Austin’s art community, the Blue Genie Art Bazaar might satisfy your shopping needs. Instead of watching enraged parents fight over the last white iPod nano, you can peacefully admire the stunning photography by Blake Gordon or entertain yourself trying on Chia Hats while shopping for all manner of handmade crafts.

Austin’s Blue Genie Art is hosting the event through Christmas Eve deep in the East Side. Hours extend until midnight on Friday, but the seriously procrastinating shopper will only have until 6pm to do their business on Saturday. After that it’s back to the Internet or the mall, or waiting until next year to rub the genie’s artfully homecrafted bottle.

    Luckily Christmas Day just begins the 12 days of Christmas which winds down in the true day of gift-giving, the Epiphany. Real traditionalists can extend the holiday to Candlemas.
