There are ways to avoid the mall this holiday season, support local stores and artists, and still buy gifts for everyone no your list. Oakland Unwrapped, in collaboration with Jack London Square, ProArts, adn Oakland Grown, is putting on a “mall-ternative” shopping event, Holiday Buy Night, on Thursday and Friday, December 10th and 11th, from 5 to 10 PM. From pet lovers to food lovers, fashionistas to athletes, women, men, children, and everyone in between, Holiday Buy Night promises to have something for everyone on your list.
If you need a shopping break, be sure to check out the music and live entertainment going on throughout the evening. Have the young ones check out the kids section for games, arts and crafts, and a movie. And if you get hungry or thirsty, be sure to check out the “food court” at the event. Restaurants from Jack London Square will be selling food, including Kincaids, Cocina Poblana, Ben and Jerry’s, and others. Awaken Cafe will provide coffee and hot chocolate and Numi and L’Amyx will provide hot tea to keep you warm and alert while shopping. There will also be a beer and wine bar, featuring the East Bay Express’ holiday lager! This is one shopping event you won’t want to miss this December!
