brookside holidayEven though you may still be scheduling your Thanksgiving plans, it’s time for Brookside’s Holiday Season Opener–tomorrow, Nov 13, 2014 from 6-9pm at 63rd St and Brookside Blvd.  It may be a bit chilly but the atmosphere will be warm and you’ll enjoy  complimentary coffee and hot chocolate from the Roasterie and Michael Forbes Grill!

Choirs from area schools will serenade shoppers and  bring out the holiday spirit  as you stroll through the shops, checking out special deals and admiring the special seasonal window displays.  Bring any gently used winter coats or sweaters you may have and drop them off at World’s Window–they are collecting outwear for Rose Brooks Center–and you’ll get a 20% off coupon to use in the store.
