Sippin’ Santa at Bonny’s Hideaway, 549 King St. | 11-2 a.m., daily
This King Street Tiki bar transforms into a festive escape this season, featuring a new brunch special coined “Miss Claus’ Walk of Shame” and tropical cocktails. We’re thinking if Santa could surf, he’d definitely drink here.

Imagine an over-the-top holiday party that you actually want to attend. Enjoy the decor and sip festive cocktails like a snowball old-fashioned or a hot buttered rum.
