Johnny Angel and The Halos Comeback Holiday Show at Rivers Casino; Handmade Arcade at D.L. Lawrence Convention Center (Sat., 12/3/22)

1) Johnny Angel is returning from a few years of semi-retirement and he’s doing it in a big way. He and  The Halos are playing Rivers Casino Events Center, a spot normally reserved for touring music legends. Angel is a legend, bringing soulful rock and oldies numbers to life for Pittsburghers (and citizens of other locales) of several generations. Johnny Angel and The Halos have appeared with many iconic musicians like the Temptations, Chuck Berry, Frankie Valli, and Ray Charles. Get your oldies on this month with Johnny Angel and The Halos Comeback Holiday Show. 7 p.m. Rivers Casino, 777 Casino Dr., North Shore. (R.H.)

2) The Handmade Arcade is like the mall, except that every seller is unique and unpredictable instead of the opposite. The annual craft fair has brought clothiers, printmakers, bookbinders, housewares creators, illustrators, stationery designers, knitters, toy smiths, bath product inventors and other artisans under one roof. Live glass blowing demonstrations, free grab-and-go craft kits, and more will be offered. This year, more than 150 vendors will be on hand, organized into seemingly endless rows in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The In Person Holiday Market is where people who pretend they’re too cool for Christmas shopping actually do their Christmas shopping. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Free, but attendees must sign up for timed tickets. There’s also a virtual catalog this year. 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Cultural District. (E.C. R.H.)
