By definition, happy hour is a good time, but this Thursday (12/3), the Mucky Duck's happy hour is going to be extra fun, because in addition to drink specials, we're helping some kids in need have some holiday cheer. We'll be collecting toys for donation to Captain Hope's Kids, a non-profit organization that helps homeless kids across North Texas. All you have to do to participate is bring an unwrapped toy (and feel free to bring more than one if you want!), then enjoy discounted drinks, free tacos from our taco bar, and some great door prizes donated from local businesses. And speaking of local businesses, you'll have a great opportunity to meet local pros from a wide variety of industries like marketing and social media. Get some drinks, meet some folks, and help some kids! Don't forget to use the hashtag #SocialSantaDFW while you're there, because we'll be awarding more prizes as the evening goes on!
Make Meals for the Homeless at Saintsbury Tavern
Join your friends from the Saintsbury Tavern for their monthly Making Meals for the Homeless event on the morning of Saturday, December 5! From 8:45 to 11a, Saintsbury staff and volunteers will be makin' sandwiches and baggin' up lunches for donation to SoupMobile for distribution to those in need.
If you'd like to participate, come in clothes you can get bleach on, and bring (in any combination), a loaf of sliced sandwich bread, sliced bologna, American cheese, bags of tortilla chips, and sandwich or animal cookies. What's really amazing about this event (besides the warm fuzzy feeling you get from helping others) is that Saintsbury usually makes enough food to feed over 5,000 hungry people. Sleep in on Sunday and help some people in need Saturday morning!
Vitruvian Lights on Saturday Night
Addison Ice House will be providing the food for Saturday night's Vitruvian Lights concert, featuring your holiday favorites performed by the Dallas String Quartet. The event starts at 6p, and in addition to fun stuff like a Santa photo zone and an elf balloon artist, there's also the Metrocrest Services Toy & Food drive, which you can learn more about here.
