As a different take on Christmas Eve, you can go out and get blitzened this year. Hang out with the Bar Crawl fam and stroll into the local hangouts that are still open on this more-quiet evening. It’s bound to be a different bar experience than usual.

Where: College and Ossington
When: Monday, December 24 from 7 pm to 11 pm
