Dose Market's holiday market lineup is bananas. We suggest getting there early for some Owen + Alchemy juice and a Pleasant House pie. Also: don't forget to drop a romantic verse on the lady from Poems While You Wait.

Michael Kiser of Good Beer Hunting, which was named Best Food or Wine Blog by Saveur Magazine, hosts a one-day holiday pop-up shop at the GBH studio. Beers lovers can expect limited-edition goods from Solemn Oath, Gaslight Coffee Roasters and more. Kiser will be selling GBH merch as well, including new glassware and the Beer Peen Hammer, a handsome hybrid bottle opener and bronze pounder.
