Downtown If you need to be slightly buzzed to get through Christmas dinner (complete with Uncle Joe’s political commentary and questions about when you’ll produce a grandchild), Freddie’s opens at noon.
Downtown There’s no better place to take the edge off of a tense family holiday than Haymarket Whiskey Bar. Head there at 4pm and select one -- or five -- of the over 150 bourbons on offer to drink away the day.
Schnitzelburg Screw those newfangled kids' toys that you’re inevitably going to end up putting together for your niece. Zanzabar’s doors open at 8pm this year with cold beer, vintage pinball machines, and the musical act “I’m Dreaming of a White Stripes Christmas” kicking off at 9pm.
