Girl’s night out (pre-holiday edition)

Finding time to do anything that isn’t related to the holidays between Thanksgiving and Christmas is nearly impossible. Coordinating a night out with friends during that time is nothing short of a miracle. Before you forget whether you picked up the gravy at the store, if you called mom, or even what day it is, plan ahead to have a fun evening out.

Get in the spirit

The seventh annual Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits, brought to you by NH Liquor and Wine Outlets and benefiting the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire, features more than 130 tables of spirits for sampling and food from top restaurants. The showcase is one event of many planned for Distiller’s Week. Also, check out the Women of Whiskey & Spirits seminar. Five experts will present their whiskies and spirits in a seminar-style tasting.

Girls Night Out

Hang out, shop, eat, drink, and enjoy fun activities at a Holiday Girls Night out in Atkinson or Lebanon.

Book a reading with a psychic, get in on the silent auction, or paint your own ornament, all while wearing your ugliest holiday sweater for a chance to win a vacation. Proceeds from the auction benefit the NH Breast Cancer Coalition, or bring a canned good to help out the local soup kitchen.
