    Cru Food & Wine Bar: Christmas Eve

    CRU's festive Christmas Eve menu lets you enjoy a night out with loved ones (Downtown or in the Domain) for a brief respite of stress-free wining and dining before the big day. Choose from a set menu for a fabulous three-course meal (or, sure, go a la carte instead). Appetizers include lobster bisque and tortelloni fonduta with black truffle butter; the entrée brings choices among jumbo shrimp scampi, NY strip steak, Alaskan halibut, braised short ribs; and you can opt for any of three different desserts (but we're totes focused on that chocolate mousse cake, omg). Note: Kids 12 and younger eat for half off.
    $55 dine-in, $125 for two to-go.
    Downtown at 238 W. Second #13; in the Domain at 11410 Century Oaks Terrace #104

    Davis Gallery: Together Again

    Here's an extensive – and highly recommended – group exhibition that showcases the depth of work by 34 Texas-based Davis Gallery artists, celebrating the present and the historical feel of our everchanging state. Randall Reid. Denise M. Fulton. Dana Younger. Jan Heaton. Faustinus Deraet. Caprice Pierucci. Steve Brudniak. Lisa Beaman. B. Shawn Cox. And however many more, too, which a little math will reveal – but not as gloriously as seeing the art in person.
    Opening reception: Sat., Dec. 11, 4-7pm

    Greetings from Shrewd Mountain Lodge

    Ready to solve a mystery, you clever sleuths? Here's a multimedia holiday whodunit – created by Jenny Connell Davis, Shannon Grounds, Trey Deason, and Raul Garza – in which things go awry among the cast and crew of the Winter Festival Play assembled at Shrewd Mountain Lodge. As strange events and sinister accidents continue to pile up, it becomes clear that someone or something is trying to sabotage the production. Note: Subscribers will hear from all six main characters via video messages, holiday cards, and letters in the actual mail over the course of six weeks – along with artifacts, souvenirs, and clues to help solve the mystery. Bonus: Discover the culprit by the end of Week 5, and you'll get an additional, special prize.
    The experience begins Dec. 12. $40-60.
