Christmas is such a tiring day of the year. So much preparation. So many dishes to cook, presents to wrap and stockings to stuff. The day after you need to recharge after one last helping of Cousin Florence's fruitcake. What better way than at the Boxing Day Social at the Spare Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel?
A $10 minimum suggested donation gains you entry to the "Social" event of the year on Monday the 26th. The event is a fundraiser for the Hospitality Kitchen, which feeds and cares for the homeless. Live music will be provided by Hobo Jazz, who contrary to expectations are not homeless clients of the Hospitality Kitchen. In addition to the live music, your donation gets you a bottomless glass of punch (which puts any bottomless cup of coffee to shame), bar bites and entry to the legendary Jenga Tournament. If you strapped for cash after being guilt tripped into buying too many presents for friends and relatives, blankets, sleeping bags or warm clothes will also be accepted as entry donations in lieu of cash.
In addition to all proceeds from entry benefiting the Hospitality Kitchen, there will be the First Annual Bartenders with Bar Tabs Auction. You can bid on drinks with one of the top bartenders in LA at one of the best bars in the city. Each bartender is generously donating their time and a bar tab at their establishment; the tabs will be mixed and matched and you can bid on an evening with folks such as Kate Grutman, Aidan Demarest, Marcos Tello, Dave Kupchinsky, Lacey Murillo, Lauren Osbourne and more.
This Social will be hosted by Naomi Schimek, so you know it will be legit.
Monday December 26th, 7 - 11 pm @ the Spare Room at the Roosevelt.
