Public transport with huge shopping bags? No bueno. For the holidays, Oak Street Council is offering free valet parking every Tuesday from 10AM-2PM through December 27 at 57 E. Oak, along with caroling, food trucks during weekday lunchtimes and raffle prizes every Monday through the 26th. Plus if you spend $50 at any participating boutique, you get a little ticket that enters you into drawings to win prizes from the Oak Street boutiques, restaurants and nearby hotels. [Racked Inbox]
