Holiday Beers for a Cause; Fun Christmas Shopping

SHOP WIRE— Forget shopping at the last minute or heading to department stores when you can find unique gifts at Yelp's Nifty Under 50 Holiday Pop-Up Market, tomorrow (December 14) starting at noon. Apart from the long list of local vendors and live music throughout the event, there will also be drinks provided by Deep Eddy Vodka, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Katz Coffee, KIND Healthy Snacks, My Fit Foods and Whole Foods Market. More info here. [Eaterwire]

LISTICLESThe Houston Press continues its gift-giving guides with a list of five griller goodies to hand out this Christmas. At No. 5 is a stove-top smoker: "This indoor and outdoor smoker ($44.86 for a large, $36.95 for a small) is perfect for someone that loves to smoke meat, fish, and vegetables. It will work over any heat source, from an electric stove top to a camp fire, so you can smoke foods nearly anywhere. The smoker comes with four samples of flavored wood chips, but you can always buy a few more online or from outdoor and specialty stores like Home Depot and Sur La Table." [Houston Press]

HEIGHTS— With the holidays in full gear, several local bars and eateries are hosting toy drives and fundraising events, and D&T Drive Inn is no exception. Head to that Heights-area beer bar for Holiday Beers & Cheers, an event benefitting Workshop Houston. Donate $5 and receive a beer from Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company. Donate $3 and have your unwrapped Christmas gifts wrapped on the spot. Or take an item from the organization's "wish list" detailed below.
