Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be stressful. As learned from the Germans, it can be low-key yet festive, relaxed and beer-tastic. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery’s annual Weihnachtsmarkt features an assortment of booths with locally made arts and crafts. To maintain the holiday spirit, there’s also spiced wine and the brewery’s new drink, an authentic German-style “Weihnachtsbockbier” (Christmas Bock beer). This brew is described as being “a full-bodied, malty, smooth winter lager.” (Anita Overcash)
In his heyday, Public Enemy’s Minister of Information aka Professor Griff (Richard Griffin) was praised for being on the frontlines of a late ‘80s hip-hop revolution, but an anti-semitic statement later and he was ostracized and hated. Oddly enough, it was his words — whether those past controversial ones were taken out of context or not — that would bring him back into the spotlight, where he frequently voices his opinion on hip-hop, black power and other topics. Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Griff comes to school Charlotte with a lecture and Q&A that covers “the five p’s” — that being, pimps, prostitutes, the pulpit, preachers and the President. He’ll also sign copies of his latest book, A Warrior’s Tapestry. (Anita Overcash) $10-$12
