Saturday night's Gifts and Garters show at Excuses featured vintage and locally made crafts for wrapping at home, and a handful of burlesque performers who helped with the unwrapping onstage. Hosted by Through the Looking Glass and Bewitching Burlesque, the show included performances from Perle Noire, the Austin-based Jigglewatts, Honey Cocoa Bordeauxx and more.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
