The week leading up to Christmas Eve and Christmas is finally here! This can be a week full of hustle & bustle, last-minute gift shopping and filling the week with a few festive items. In case you are out shopping or just looking for a very merry way to start your festivities, we have compiled a few things to add to your list. 

That incredible peppermint delight above? Swing by Sno-Cap (mentioned below) to grab one! 

Celebrate Craft-mas 

Local restaurant and cocktail connoisseur Craft & Vine is known to go ALL out to celebrate holidays. This year, they've celebrated Christmas all month long with 'Craftmas.' This fun take on the holiday season includes transforming the restaurant and bar into a winter wonderland, complete with holiday cocktails and a themed menu.

The restaurant is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, however they will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. 

Pepper-MINT To Be 

It might be the holiday season, but we're still celebrating with amazingly warm weather. Treat yourself with the delicious Peppermint Candy Milkshake from Sno-Cap Drive-In. This delightful blend is garnished with whip cream, chocolate chips and a candy cane. 

Fa La La La Cocktails 

In the mood for a festive holiday cocktail before making your way under the mistletoe? Finch & Fifth is serving up the toasty bonfire cocktail starting Tuesday night. This winter delight is made with Godiva chocolate liqueur, crane de cacao vanilla, housemade s'mores simple syrup with chocolate drizzle and topped with a toasted marshmallow. Open Tuesday & Wednesday this week. 

Craft & Vine is serving up the Mr. Grinch made with Southern Gin, green chartreuse, Pimms, basil and rosemary for a naughty treat that will make your heart grow two sizes. Open Tuesday & Wednesday this week. 

Christmas brings good cheer with the Poinsettia served at Frog Hollow Tavern - a delicious mix of Tanquery, lime juice and spiced cranberry lavender syrup. Open Wednesday this week, we highly recommend making a reservation in advance. 

Christmas Lights 

In the mood to take-in the festive holiday lights? Netflix recently donated a $10,000 worth of Christmas cheer to downtown Augusta as part of their holiday cheer campaign. The lights are located in the middle of downtown Augusta, directly across from the Imperial Theatre for everyone to enjoy. 

Edgar's Above Broad will be serving up cocktails with a rooftop view and fully-lit Christmas tree for the perfect Instagram backdrop.
