Aren't the holidays are all about giving? Well, 'Nativity the Pop Opera' is your chance to give back and get a little something this holiday season. The lighthearted show commemorates the Christmas story through the eyes of the angels. Written and founded by J. Todd Anderson (who has worked with the Coen brothers and George Clooney — you've heard of them, right?), the show is sure to impress.
What does Santa do those other 364 days of the year? Pub crawls, of course. Dress up in your favorite Santa Claus suit and join others in spreading holiday cheer at SantaCon.

Then enjoy getting messages from the North Pole all day that will send you around downtown spreading Christmas merriness. Check in at noon and enjoy 12 venues in 12 hours.
Forget the gift cards this year. Winterfair has something unique for everyone.

From leather purses and silk clothing to pottery and wood-worked pieces, the fair is well worth a visit.
Drink to help others? Sure, why not? Stop by the Newport Aquarium Saturday and enjoy wine, beer and spirits from around the world as well as local cuisine from your favorite restaurants.

You can pre-order tickets for $85 online or buy them at the door for $95.

Obsessed with 'Project Runway' and their challenges that have aspiring designers using garbage or grocery store finds to create ball gowns and swimsuits?

From curtains and clothes to bed sheets and tablecloths, these students made it work and created one-of-a-kind looks. Dhani Jones hosts the fashion show Thursday at the Hilton Netherland Plaza Hall of Mirrors downtown.
