<strong>Seasonal fun downtown:</strong> During Healdsburg's Downtown Holiday Party on Friday from 4 to 9 p.m., downtown merchants will serve up tasty treats as Santa's sled lands in the Plaza.

At Barndiva's garden, you can enjoy roasted chestnuts that were grown at owner Jil Hales' farm in Philo.

Meanwhile, inside the gallery, there will be Meyer lemon vodka-infused cocktails made with heirloom apple juice from the farm. The "Why Bears Do It" cocktail also features garden thyme and house-made American oak bitters.

Barndiva is located at 231 Center St. Info: <a href="http://barndiva.com" target="_blank">barndiva.com</a>.
