As we all ease our way back into routines and deadlines, we’re keeping our eyes on the bright spots of the season. We’ve gathered a few feel-good ways to invest your time and energy in the month ahead.
The 5th Annual Bad Santa event is taking place this Saturday, December 3rd from 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm. Hosted by The World Is Fun at Rhein Haus Seattle, come grab a pint of Ninkasi Sleighr and snag a picture with our Bad Santa to get into the holiday spirit. All proceeds benefit The World Is Fun, a Seattle based charitable social club with a mission to connect Seattleite’s with fun ways to give back to their community.
