Lisa Amador: Time to Enjoy the Holidays with a Date

The most festive season of the year is here.  

It's time to wear bright colors and celebrate the coming New Year. It's not a time to stay home and think about the past. It's a time to enjoy the holidays and be around positive people. Surround yourself with friends and family who appreciate you, but also make the effort to meet some new people. 

Many holiday events are on tap during the coming weeks. Take a friend, go solo or be brave and ask that one person you've wanted to go out with.

Don't wait. The season will be gone much too soon.  

Want some holiday dating suggestions? How about these?  

You’re sure to enjoy John Lyle, a local guitarist, vocalist, pianist, composer and song writer, who will perform at 6 p.m. Dec. 23 at Carr Winery, 414 Salsipuedes St.   

Ready for New Year's Eve? Many festive events are planned. Here's just a couple:  

The Canary Hotel, corner of Chapala Street and Carrillo Boulevard, is having a New Year's Eve masquerade ball on the roof or “perch” starting at 8 p.m. with DJ Darla Bea.

How mysterious and it's a clever way to meet your masked man or maiden.

And the Carriage and Western Art Museum, 129 Castillo St., is having a "Brew Year's Eve" party starting at 8 p.m. Cheers! 

With all these holiday options, you just may be on your way to change your Facebook status from "single" to "in a relationship."  So, go out, be safe and enjoy the holidays.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
