More fun events this week, both holiday and otherwise. For holiday shopping, check out the Queen Anne Community Center, it’ll be hopping with children’s books and antiques, with proceeds benefitting their scholarship programs. For holiday events, the Nutcracker continues its run at PNB. Sports? No Seahawks, but there’s the Battle in Seattle basketball game at the Key.
