Decades ago there was a venue called the Armadillo World Headquarters. The location is now an office building but the venue lives on in our minds and in the Threadgill's restaurants AND at the annual Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. Originally the event was at the music venue and combined shopping for unique presents with music. When the venue was gone, the bazaar continued in various locations and has settled for the last couple of years at the Palmer Events Center. We went last night to hear Bill Kirchen and Marcia Ball play hits from back in the day and amusing bluesy, rock and roll and country influenced Christmas tunes. Fabulous. The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is a great place to finish your shopping, too, because they are open until 11PM right up through Christmas Eve.
