If you're looking for a free, fast and easy way to give back this season, give the gift of life. Join Lightning 100's Team Green Adventures for their Holiday Blood Drive at the American Red Cross location off of Charlotte. Giving blood takes no longer than an hour, and with your one donation, you can help save up to three lives!

I don't know about you, but right about this time of the holiday season, I start to get a little sick of holiday music. Call me a scrooge if you want, but there's one soundtrack that will never leave me begging to put in my ear buds: Vince Guaraldi's "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Join The Ornaments at The Family Wash tonight as they celebrate the season with their fantastic "A Charlie Brown Christmas" show! This event is pretty popular, so go ahead and make reservations!

Speaking of reservations, if you haven't made them already, go ahead and reserve your tickets to tomorrow night's "Science of Beer" event at the Adventure Science Center. These types of events tend to sell out quickly, and we'd hate for you to miss a pairing as amazing as science and beer!
