Two Hillcrest bars throw one big holiday party

Uptown Tavern

What’s better than a festive holiday party in Hillcrest? A festive holiday party in Hillcrest that supports a great cause. Uptown Tavern will be joined by Gossip Grill for a celebration on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

The two bars will both feature a variety of specials for event-goers to enjoy. Uptown Tavern will party on with a photo booth, live DJ sets, go-go dancers, a holiday food table and $3 you-call-it drinks. Oh, and there will also be a live burlesque show to top things off.

The best part about the event is that proceeds benefit The Aseltine School in Hillcrest. The Aseltine School focuses on meeting the educational needs of learning-disabled children, as well as emotionally disturbed children. The school hopes to help guide the kids through empowerment and engage them in activities to help them develop skills to help them feel more confident in the “mainstream” community.

The event will collect non-perishable food items to donate to the school. Those who bring out cans to donate can look forward to entering a raffle and winning prizes, including some stellar beers and liquors.

The event is free to attend and starts at 7 p.m.

Uptown Tavern, 1236 University Ave., Hillcrest.
