Think. Drink. Be merry!

Come in from the cold (at least we hope it’ll be cold), enjoy a seasonal adult beverage, sport your ugliest holiday sweater and help us celebrate the jolliest Thinkery21 of them all—JingleBooze! If your family festivities aren’t weird enough, we’ll be sure to make things plenty awkward.

Think outside the (ugly) sweater: Join us in celebrating the holiday with a quintessential ugly sweater contest.

Shop-aholics Unite: Did you conveniently forget to buy a gift for that special someone? No worries, Thinkery’s got you covered since our gift store is open for the shoppin’!

JingleDrag – Get on the naughty list with holiday drag performances from Austin International Drag Foundation.

Hollies, Jollies, and Tamales - Indulge in a festive feast of tamales made with love from Tamale Addiction and be sure to take a selfie with #TamiTamale!

Koozie Couture - Visit Bibliographia mobile studio to learn the process of screen printing and make a holiday memento that will keep your drink cold and your hands warm.

Didn’t think too hard about that holiday card? Create and mail your own holiday-themed card with GIDDYUP ART STUDIO.

Voices singing let’s be jolly – We’ll be rocking around with holiday tunes courtesy of Texas Professional DJ and Dub Academy.
