Andersonville Holiday Contest Goes 'Off The Beaten Path' during Late Night Andersonville!

Tonight is Late Night Andersonville, which means the stores stay open late and offer special one-night-only discounts for all of your holiday shopping needs.  Details about Late Night Andersonville are here, and a link to the Late Night Andersonville coupon with all of the discounts is here.

But not all businesses in Andersonville are right on Clark Street.  In fact, some of our favorites are a little 'off the beaten path!'  So today's Andersonville Holiday Contest focuses on two such businesses - Painted Light Photography & Framing Gallery and Tree House Humane Society.  And offers an extra something for all of you animal lovers!

Painted Light owner Barb Laing has been a fixture in Andersonville for 20 years, and runs her framing gallery and gift shop at 1742 W. Balmoral.  She brings an artist's touch to all her framing and photo restoration projects, and carries an array of locally made, whimsical products.  I always find fun and unexpected gifts there during the holiday season.  Plus she makes some amazingly delicious punch!

Tree House is an organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. Located at 1212 W. Carmen, they are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home and to helping lead the way to a no-kill nation.

And now the contest:

Visit either (or both!) locations during Late Night Andersonville (Friday, November 30, 6:00-10:00 pm) and check in on your mobile phone (Foursquare/Facebook/Yelp - whatever you got), and get entered to win great prizes.  Tree House is giving away a kitty gift basket; Painted Light is giving away a $50 gift certificate.

To entice you to make that walk west or east, both are featuring great events during Late Night Andersonville. Tree House is hosting an open house where you can see their space and meet some of their (many, many) feline residents.  If you love cats, this is an awesome opportunity - it really is a fun place to be!  Painted Light is offering a casual photo shoot for your holiday customized greeting card needs.  She's a great photographer and will have a festive holiday backdrop and everything - just show up wearing your holiday photo finest.  Even bring your favorite furry companion!  She asks that in return you make a $10 donation to P.A.W.S., former home of store mascot Duke.

Even Duke gets in on the action!
So visit some great Andersonville businesses, do some holiday shopping, help some awesome animals, get your holiday photo card picture taken - Late Night Andersonville will be the place to be tonight!
