Winter's Eve at Lincoln Square
Time Out says
This action-packed cold-weather festival has been going strong for nearly two decades. As always, the fest kicks off with a holiday tree lighting ceremony in Dante Park, followed by artists, musicians and dancers ushering in the holiday season with performances at 20 different venues. If you're feeling peckish, choose from more than 30 restaurants offering food tastings for just a couple bucks each. Grab a mini beef Wellington from Bluebird London ($4) and a gruyere cheese bread from Bouchon Bakery ($2) and then go take advantage of special one-night-only discounts and deals at shops around the neighborhood.
