Need a break from the already overwhelming sappy sounds of Xmas music and all those ugly sweater parties? Able Seedhouse & Brewery swings over to the dark side for their Grim Arcana beer release party. Along with debuting the new double brown ale (how wintery!), the dark arts party includes music from Russian-born multidisciplinary artist DJ JanaDark, Tarot readings, a crafty holiday market, food, and general black-hearted vibes. Also, bring an unwrapped unopened toy for a tot and get a free beer! Friday, December 6th, 6 PM. Free.Art Humes
