It’s only halfway through December, yet the holiday parties are already in full force. On Dec. 3, Filson, the fine outdoor-goods manufacturer, who opened up shop at 402 S. Hunter St. downtown, hosted a grand opening at its new store. The Seattle-based company also has stores in Portland, Ore., and London. Filson designated the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies as the beneficiary of two shopping days, Dec. 12 and 19 from 3 to 7 p.m., with 15 percent of all sales to benefit the nonprofit.

On Dec. 5, the Aspen Young Professionals Association stepped it up a notch for its 11th annual holiday party with an Aspen black-tie theme. AYPA members dressed to impress for the event, held at the festive Limelight Hotel. Josefina Mendez and band took to the stage while a SocialLight photo booth documented the evening, providing prints as souvenirs for all.
