Friday, Dec. 10

Holiday Handjobs at the George Dilboy VFW

7 p.m.

Another weekend in December, another holiday craft fair…right?  Wrong.  This Friday evening, the George Dilboy VFW Hall in Davis Square will be hosting Holiday Handjobs, a craft fair showcasing the handiwork of “queer crafters and artisans.”  The event will also have live music and drinks.  The Dilboy VFW is located at 371 Summer St.

The Slutcracker at the Somerville Theatre

8 p.m.

Unless you live under a rock or really hate burlesque, you’ve probably heard about The Slutcracker.  (If you haven’t, read our review.)  To sum it  up, it is the irreverently adult, sometimes raunchy, always fun burlesque take on the holiday classic.  It’s playing through Christmas Eve.  Tickets are $21 in advance and $26 at the door. 

Casablanca at the Somerville Theatre

9 p.m.

Casablanca is a classic film that needs no introduction.  Boston.com Love Letters columnist Meredith Goldstein and Globe film critic Wesley Morris will be hosting a screening of the timeless classic, featuring a pre-screening  meet-up at Orleans at 6:30 p.m., and an after-party somewhere in Davis Square afterwards.  Attendees will have the chance to win “special” prizes (including Globe sweatshirts). Tickets are $8 and can be purchased here.

Saturday, Dec. 11

Taza Chocolate Factory Store Grand Opening

11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

For the love of all things chocolate: things just got seriously sweeter in the ‘Ville.  Taza Chocolate, Somerville’s local artisanal chocolate operation, is celebrating the holiday season by inviting the public to come try free samples, see the revamped (post-July flood) factory and purchase limited-edition holiday treats, all the while sipping on Mexican Hot Chocolate and repressing the urge to refer to Taza employees as Oompa Loompas. 

Open Sound at Third Life Studio for the Performing and Healing Arts

8 p.m.

Third Life Studio is a unique space that offers classes and hosts performances of all different stripes.  On Saturday, it will host the monthly concert series Open Sound, which “explores improvised music, bringing artists from disparate backgrounds together.”   The show will include a John Cage piece and duo/solo electronics performances.  Doors open at 7:30; music starts at 8 p.m.

I was totally going to ask where I could get my golden ticket for the Taza Chocolate Factory Store Grand Opening! Even before I read the Willy Wonka reference!! Luckily I realized it was a joke before I ate 300 chocolate bars searching for a ticket…might still do this actually…
