No one does Christmas quite like the Krauts, and if your idea of celebrating the season involves both the delectable gingerbread Lebkuchen and the rich meatloaf Leberkäse, you've got a marvelous option in Midtown at Urban Chestnut's Wintermarkt. The market includes both vendors on site for holiday shopping and live music, as well as beer specials, traditional Eastern European food and warm drinks. Drink hot cocoa if you're trying to maintain sobriety — or do it like the Germans do and brace yourself for the cold and drear with a nice warm Glühwein. Wintermarkt is held Saturday in December (December 9 and December 16) from 2 to 6 p.m. at Urban Chestnut (3229 Washington Avenue; urbanchestnut.com). Admission is free, although you'll pay for food, drink and your purchases.
Price: free admission
