Kickstart your holiday festivities — with fire. Tonight at 6 p.m., Third Degree Glass Factory (5200 Delmar Boulevard; 314-367-4527 or www.stlglass.com) reveals its artists' signature ornament for this Christmas during Third Friday. Find that perfect, limited-edition glass ornament to festoon your tree. Check out the new gallery installation by Mark Witzling, Into the Mind. Enjoy acoustic tunes from the Maple Jam Band. Warm up on the patio with (and be dazzled by) fire-spinners. Plus, create a gift for somebody on your nice list in a guided glass-art class — you can make a paperweight, a nightlight, flame-worked glass beads, or fused-glass jewelry. Admission to Third Friday is free, but glass classes require a fee of $35 for materials.
Price: free admission, $35 for glass activities
