Whether you are into Monday night football, classy parties, or shopping till you drop the LES has you covered. Brandsway Creative has teamed up with several shops and bars to provide a week worth of everything from good clean holiday fun to sports bars and swanky parties.

The week of events kicks off with LES is More for the Holidays, a Shop Local promotional event that asks Lower East Siders to do their holiday shopping in at neighborhood stores. 40 shops have joined the event to promote local businesses. If the spirit of local camaraderie isn't enough to draw in shoppers, participating stores will be offering discounts of 30%, 50%, and even 75% along with promotional freebies and refreshments.

Following the shop-apalooza guests of the LES Shop Local promotion are invited to recoup from all the holiday shopping madness at theHoliday Oasis Lounge at the Mark Miller Gallery. The lounge will feature complimentary gift-wrapping, a bag check station for shoppers to unload and unwind, refreshments, free back massages from licensed massage therapist and lookbooks with great gift ideas from participating merchants. LES Shop Local goes from Sunday, Dec. 11, to Sunday Dec. 18, and the Holiday Oasis Lounge will be open Dec. 10-11 and 12-18 between 12-8pm.
