December 14: Catch the Holiday Happenings in the Glebe!

December 14, 2011 | by glebeadmin

There are lots of great reasons to be in the Glebe this week!

For starters, there are FREE cupcakes! Yes—that’s right, we said FREE. Be among the first 50 customers at Marble Slab Creamery (773 Bank St.) on Thursday, December 15, between 4-7pm and you’ll get a sweet, tasty treat for absolutely nothing. It’s just the little sugar boost you need to finish off your shopping.

And here’s a FREE way to work off that FREE treat. Snap Fitness Center (625 Bank St.) is offering a free one-week trial membership. Get a head start on those New Year’s Resolutions and ask about the month-to-month membership—no contracts!

Love to ski, or have a skier on your list? Kunstadt Sports (680 Bank St.) is organizing a bus from the Glebe to CampFortune and Mont Ste. Marie beginning Saturday, January 9, for nine weeks. Prices start at just $45 for the bus ride and lift ticket; book before December 15th and get an Early Bird Special rate.

Got some knitting to catch up on? Yarn Forward & Sew On (581 Bank St.) is having a Christmas Knit-In this Saturday, December 17, from 10am-4pm. Finish off that handmade gift or just enjoy a little cozy company as you escape the Christmas chaos. The cider will be nice and warm, and a small donation to the Ottawa Food bank will be much appreciated.

It’s the last weekend before Christmas and the deals are really heating up! All books at Dragan Tail Bookshop (107 Fourth Ave.) are 50% off this weekend. Drop in and save a bundle on books about Eastern religion and philosophy, spiritual healing and the occult.

Come back here for more Glebe goings on, or tune into the Glebe’s own local radio station, online at Radio Glebe.

And don’t forget when you’re shopping—every $20 you spend gets you a stamp in your Glebe-Spree Passport. Every page filled with ten stamps is your chance to win a $10,000 Glebe-Spree this January!
