IT’S HOLLY FOLLY TIME!

It’s that time of year again! Well, no, not turkey time. That’s practically in the past already. We’re talking Santa hats, knit knickers, plenty of red spandex and fake fluffy beards…well, it must be time for Holly Folly Weekend!

Holly Folly is right around the corner. There’s so much to do that weekend, here are our top 5 picks of how to spend it right. Of course, this is just my opinion and you pretty much can’t go wrong with the general light-hearted merry-making that weekend. Just come…and bring your antlers!

THE BOSTON GAY MEN’S CHORUS

Well, obviously we have to start with them, since we ourselves are hosting a little shindig here at the Brass Key for them. The party starts at 9pm at Shipwreck Lounge. Tasty cocktails and talented tenors? Sounds pitch perfect to me. Oh, and of course, the main event is the BGMC’s annual performance on Saturday night at Ptown Town Hall.

JINGLE BELL RUN

Who says exercise can’t be fun?! Bust out your gold spandex and fluffy mittens (yes, the bathing suit is a requirement) and support the Ptown Business Guild in this fun-run followed promptly by a champagne brunch.

SHOP, HOP, & STROLL

Too many good things happening on Commercial Street on Saturday to name them all but suffice to say you should bring your wallet and see where the day takes you!

BAYSIDE BETSY’S PAJAMA DRAG BRUNCH

Brunch, brunch, I wish every day was brunch day! This is a well-loved annual tradition for Holly Folly Weekend and not to be missed! You’ll have to be patient though, as it’s first come first served.

GREGG’S COOKIE PARTY AT THE PORCHSIDE BAR

Yes, it’s Sunday but that just means there are still several more hours until we have to get back to reality so better take advantage! Finish the weekend with something to satisfy the sweet tooth. This is another fun holiday tradition, hosted by The Gifford House Inn.
