“Kwanzaa is a Swahili word — it means, ‘Santa don’t come to my house.’ ” So said Ellen Cleghorne in an episode of Saturday Night Live from the early 1990s.

The Dock Bookshop will be holding a Kwanzaa celebration with vendors and door prizes today. It runs 5-8pm at 6637 Meadowbrook Dr, FW. Admission is free. Call 817-457-5700.

Last week the Texas Brahmas lost to the Allen Americans in Collin County, so they’ll be eager for revenge in tonight’s rematch.

The puck drops at 7pm at NYTEX Sports Centre, 8851 Ice House Dr, North Richland Hills. Tickets are $12-30.
