The first-ever CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop was a whole lot of fun, with tequila drinks and "poptails," man cave football watching, photos in the Smilebooth, tarot card readings, relaxing massages and lots of shopping. Guests also grooved to music from DJ Bizonne and sampled delicacies from Phoenicia Specialty Foods.

Here are some scenes from the big event.

Nathan Scully and Ashton Kaminski in the Cuatro booth — one of 25 Houston vendors who set up shop in Silver Street Studios offering unique and fun gift items.

Julie Samson, left, and Katie Samson do some comparison shopping.

Shoppers could take a breather in the man cave, decorated with faux animal heads by Rebekah Johnson of  Bergner & Johnson. She also created a winter wonderland throughout the massive space with twinkling lights and colorful fabric panels. Audio Vision supplied big-screen TVs so Texans fans could keep up on Sunday's game.

Danielle Johnston, left, with Brian and Shelly Carey did some serious shopping.

Marcelo Saenz, left, and Adrian Duenas mingle with a trusted friend in the Manready Mercantile space.

Creshema Murray takes a break from shopping to have her tarot cards read. The Swany Sisters provided tarot card readings and 15-minute hand reflexology sessions.
