Well, I'm happy to report that in a couple of weeks, we'll all have as good an excuse as any to brunch at The Stone Fox. The West Side venue, bar and restaurant will host their Holiday Market and Music Night on Saturday, Dec. 15. Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., there will be local vendors of all stripes, from the vinyl-peddling Third Man Rolling Record Store to comestible dealers Bang Candy and Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers. Jams will follow when day becomes the night — those jams courtesy of new faves Promised Land, trouble-makers Birdcloud, robot rockers Heypenny and more. Reason for the Season Alert: Second Harvest will be there accepting nonperishable food items. But you don't need me to tell you this noise. Fox co-proprietor and Tyler Family Band member Elise Tyler sent along a press release. Elise release. Take it away, Lisey:
THE STONE FOX is pleased to announce a day of holiday festivities on SATURDAY DECEMBER 15th.

There will be an activity area for children, and Second Harvest will be accepting non-perishable food donations. Inside the Fox, brunch will be served from 11am-3pm and the turntables will be spinning holiday jams all day long.
As the day turns to night, the stage will be home to a medley of local musicians and bands playing holiday favorites and originals. Confirmed artists include Heypenny, Promised Land, The Tyler Family Band, JP5 (Joey Plunkett 5), Birdcloud, plus more to be announced.
