Weekend at a Glance: Christmas sales and celebrations (and robotics)

I always feel like the first Saturday in December should be turned into a Richard Scarry book for kids, “The Busy, Busy Day”.

Here are highlights of what’s happening around town this weekend. (For more, check the Event Calendar.)
