Ho Ho Ho. Christmas in July is on the horizon and Santa called to ask for our help rounding up spots with local celebrations.

Clare’s Creamery | 1635 E. North St.
On Tuesday, July 25, taste limited batches of your favorite holiday flavors, including peppermint crunch, eggnog, and gingerbread man. We also heard that Santa — yes, THE Santa — will be there from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Thomas Creek | 2054 Piedmont Hwy.
Some say Santa prefers beer to milk. Celebrate the big guy himself on Saturday, July 29. Grab a beer, a bite, and some mistletoe.

Wine and Design | 1175 Woods Crossing Rd.
Get into the holiday spirit early with a Christmas-themed painting class. Bring your own booze — we recommend eggnog — grab a few of your favorite elves, and rock the night away.
