The city is officially getting holiday-ified. Here's another example: The Westin St. Francis is rolling out one of the world's largest sugar castles next Wednesday, constructed by their Executive Pastry Chef Jean-Francois Houdré.  At 12 feet, 30 "rooms" and 1,200 lbs, you can probably get diabetes from just looking at it. Go check it out November 24-January 3, but only if you feel really secure in your gingerbread house-making skills.

The official unveiling takes place on Wednesday at 10 am, accompanied by (free) hot chocolate.
