If you’re looking for something family-friendly to do today, the Peabody has its annual Christmas tree lighting in the lobby. It will start at 11 AM when the ducks march from their rooftop home to the lobby fountain. Local choirs will perform all day. Immediately after the ducks march back upstairs at 5 PM, Santa and his elves will appear. Good place to take the kids to get them in the holiday spirit.
If you want a non-family-friendly recommendation, I’ve got one of those too, just waiting for iPhoto to finish upgrading. Back soon with another post.
