Look Alive: There’s a Gingerbread House Workshop at The Crescent

Fun!

I regret to inform you that we’ve missed the deadline to buy tickets to the Hotel Crescent Court’s adults-only gingerbread house workshops, where your fee includes cocktails and lights bites. But stress not—there’s still plenty of gingerbread house fun to be had this Saturday and Sunday. (The Eventbrite doesn’t clarify if you can BYOB, but you could certainly give the Uptown hotel a call.)

Now, I’m sure there are plenty of wonderful holiday-esque workshops in Dallas, so why does this one matter? Because, let’s face it, of all the holiday crafts a person can do, a gingerbread house is by far and away the easiest to execute. The biggest challenge is getting your graham cracker walls to stick together. From there, you literally cannot go wrong. What are you going to do? Go overboard on gumdrops? No such thing! Oops—you forgot a chimney. Marshmallows were made to be burned, baby.

Plus, this scene of a bunch of gingerbread houses lining the floor-ceiling windows overlooking Crescent Court looks undeniably festive and fun. Tickets to the remaining workshops are $134.40, and are available right here.
