Radar: Crywolf Holiday Pop-Up Shop, A New Beginning, Craig Stickland's Christmas Concert, Write Club Toronto

SHOPPING | Crywolf Holiday Pop-Up Shop
If the terms unusual, handmade, and local enter your daily vernacular, Crywolf Holiday Pop-Up Shop should be a part of your Tuesday night plans. Holiday gifts will be on sale at the Dundas West gallery, with a nail art bar, Crywolf Claws, set up for $10 manicures and free teas and treats provided. The shop is open until Sunday, with late hours on Friday and a special day of board games on Sunday.
Narwhal Art Projects (2988 Dundas Street West) 12PM Free

ART | A New Beginning
Celebrating the coming of the winter solstice, seven artists create A New Beginning at the Gladstone's Art Bar. Opening tonight, artists Kris Bovenizer, Lydia Charak, Pauline Dalby, Marthy Nasato, Birgitta Pavik, Maria H. Pawlowicz and Sarah Tothill explore the changing of the Earth's axis through visual artwork in this six-day exhibit. The opening reception takes place on Friday, with the exhibit closing on the 23rd.

MUSIC | Craig Stickland's Christmas Concert
Toronto singer-songwriter Craig Stickland hosts a Christmas concert at the Drake, performing with his five-piece roots rock band this evening. Joined by Toronto soulful blues band Belle Ayre, Stickland's show will benefit those in need during the holiday season, with a reduced ticket price for those who bring a non-perishable food item. Prizes and holiday cheer are included in the evening!
The Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West) 9PM $10

BOOKS & LIT | Write Club Toronto, Chapter Three: "Jingle All The Way...To Hell"
Like Fight Club for writers, Write Club shows bookworms how to battle it out in front of a live audience. Two writers given opposing ideas have seven minutes to competitively write in four separate rounds. Only one writer will win based on the audience's choosing, with the cash prize going to the charity of their choice. This month's Write Club is going to get bloody.
The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West) 7:30PM $10
