For those of you without beer steins permanently attached to your hands, you may not know that Wirtshaus is a two-year old sausage and draft beer hall on La Brea. In the past, they've partied with lederhosen and even invited along German dignitaries to take part in the festivities, but on Sunday, December 9th they're turning into a Christmas market, of sorts. There will be jewelry available from Verve, Liz Law and Sunday Company, as well as clothing accessories from Duck Ugly and Modern Archives. You can also expect a selection of gourmet fudge to go along with spiced wines and the regular Germanic offerings from the kitchen. And, of course, if you're feeling adventurous, there will apparently be on-site tattooing. You know, for the holidays.
