Have A Taste.

Out of wrapping paper? No worries. Check out all these unconventional ways that Twitter users have come up with to wrap gifts in a pinch.

And now that we’ve saved you the time and hassle of having to run out for gift wrap, we’ll also put a bow in this post by throwing in some ways to spend the rest of your day, too. Y’know, because it’s better to give, and all that.

Irish Whiskey Tasting at The Skellig
For $30 you get the whiskeys, you get a cheese plate, you get the tasting guide that lets you pretend your palate is refined enough to taste the difference between liquors aged in different types of barrels. And you get no lecture or talk, or what have you, that usually accompanies these types of things. All for the low, low price of $30, which you can make in one easy payment to the bartender.

Sudie, War Party, The Cush at Barcadia (Fort Worth) (Free)
Not only is the show free – and not only do each of these local acts kick ass, we might add – but the arcade games will all be set to free play, too. So you can save all that coin for last-minute gift buying.

DJ Dapow at Three Links (Free)
Twas like seven nights before Christmas, give or take, and all through the punk club the DJ was stirring up a mix of old school hip-hop and trip-hop. And to all a good night.

TWD Book Club: Hag Seed at The Wild Detectives (Free)
Discuss the hell out of Margaret Atwood’s contemporary take on Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Or at least go pick up a discounted copy if you haven’t read it in time for the talk.
