As part of Brookline’s First Light Festival, Punch Bowl will open its doors for a number of family-friendly seasonal activities like cookie decorating with a side of hot chocolate or apple cider. There will also be a special visit from “The Gingerbread Man,” which hopefully will be more pleasant than a visit from “Candyman.” For those looking for food of more substance, consider having dinner at Punch Bowl right after the event is over. Their menu features items like a New England cheese board, roasted orange duck, and a seasonal sangria, which all sound like great ways to kick off the holiday season.
