And it’s served with a retro twist and a side of puns…
Last year, a holiday-themed bar called Blitzen’s landed in town and took over Art District hangout Here & Now. While they’ll still be offering a handful of seasonal treats to-go (in the form of decadent drinks like Hallelujah! Holy Sh*t! Where’s the Tylenol?! Egg Nog or bites like Santa’s Cookies or a Leftover Sandwich) with the pop-up’s “Blitzen’s At Home” version only from December 1 until in-person dining resumes on December 21. Whether the falling snow outside of the restaurant door, carolers, drag queen bingo, re-gift your sh*t games, and a holiday puppy pageant will still happen in a socially-distanced way, is yet to be confirmed.
For the usual in-person meals that begin just before Christmas, you’ll be able to indulge in hilarious yet tastefully named drinks that are along the lines of You Go Glenn Cocoa made up of hot chocolate, rum, chartreuse, and Mr. Black — or the Get Blitzen’d featuring tequila, fino, sweet vermouth, lemon, falernum, and prosecco. For belly-fillers, there’ll be dishes like Christmas Poutine with pulled turkey, house gravy, cheese curds, and bay leaf cranberry or a classic cup of matzo ball soup.
You can already make your reservations for a table later this month on Open Table here. While the menu is subject to change you can still count on Santa showing up and downing peppermint gin & tonics at the bar—but that will be off-limits to the public.
