Step into Santa’s Tavern, aka the Golden Bear, on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015, at 6 p.m. for their fifth annual Hot Toddy Competition! Your $5 cover charge at the door or donation of a canned food item will go directly to the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. Cheer on local bartenders competing for cash, prizes and bragging rights while they attempt to craft the most perfect Hot Toddy ever made. Guests do get to sample the pros submissions, but also can enjoy specials on their own House Toddys and other cocktails. Don’t forget to take some pictures in Santa’s Tavern Photo Booth, as your fridge could probably use some new hanging material that is appropriate with the season. DJ Crook will provide the merry melodies throughout the night. The holiday cheer is strong with this one! Visit or for more information.
