This week you'll find lots of fun family events, some Veterans Day deals too. Enjoy!

Fun family events

Christmas Kickoff at the Domain

At 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, 2012, The Domain will light their 40-foot Christmas tree during a special tree lighting show with Santa and friends.  Think it's too warm for a Christmas event?  There will be fake snow falling, marshmallows roasting, and toy soldiers stilt-walking, to get you in the holiday mood. We brought our son to this last year and it’s a terrific family event.

From noon to 5 p.m., there will be children's activities in Domain II, including face painting, balloon twisting, and holiday crafts. 

Holiday entertainment will include live performances from the stage in the park in Domain I and on the plaza in Domain II, as well as strolling carolers. Additionally, the evening will feature a performance by special guest and event headliner, 2008 Academy of Country Music Best New Male Vocalist, Jack Ingram. Outside Voices and NBC’s The Voice Finalist, Lex Land, will also perform holiday hits before Ingram takes the stage. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.

A cold, lonely winter seems the fate of a poor shoemaker and his wife until the magic of the season intervenes. Join the Austin Public Library's Literature LIVE! for happy surprises and fun in this traditional puppet show., The Elves and the Shoemaker, recommended for ages 4 and up.

Free Coffee

I know this is a week away but wanted to let you know that Bruegger’s Bagels is celebrating its new bottomless mug next Wednesday, November 14th. The mugs cost $159 but it is literally good for unlimited refills of sodas, tea and coffee for all of 2013. Plus it is a fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Last year the mugs raised $90,000 and they hope to match that this year.
