GLOBEVILLE — The Denver Flea is hosting another market, but this time around it's the holiday edition. The event is a unique experience to both peruse for gifts for loved ones (and, let's face it, probably yourself), as well as visit the old Denver Post headquarters, which has been dormant for over 10 years. The flea market has an entrance fee of $5, which will cover the cost of a Denver Flea tote for all of your goodies, a New Belgium beer to sip on while shopping, and a generous donation to Reading Partners Colorado. The event will run from December 3 - 6, and will feature over 150+ local vendors. Guests will also be treated with live music and drool-worthy food trucks to make this an unmissable holiday experience. For more information and tickets, visit Denver Flea's website. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
BALLPARK — Terminal Bar is inviting one and all to attend its annual ugly sweater party from 9 p.m. - 12 a.m. this Friday, December 4.

Live music will be provided by the Decaf Muchachos.
