Go for bubbly
Tonight, go to Barbette

. On Thursdays through Dec. 17, enjoy the fizzy stuff (our fave!) by the glass (Cristalino Brut NV Cava, Spain is $6) or a bottle at wine store prices. Enjoy live music, starting at 10 p.m., too. Tonight, it's Bella Koshka.

Go for culture
It's the Walker's Local Artist Gift Mart
(Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Av, Mpls, 612-375-6000, Friday through Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.) with a 2009 twist: More than 20 local artisans are taking over the Target Gallery with a museum-worthy sale.
