HURRY! SANTA is flying AWAY!🎅🏽 Downtown’s most festive holiday tradition, Miracle on Congress St, is coming to an end for the year after this weekend! In lieu of an indoor pop-up, Santa will be ‘Up on the Rooftop’ at the Playground to wave and welcome his adoring fans below. Down in front of the Tucson Together mural, drop your letter to Santa in the mailbox and grab a free kids scoop of Peppermint Ice Cream from a helpful elf in the HUB Ice Cream truck.
Next door, HUB Restaurant and Ice Creamery has put together a special holiday-inspired cocktail menu so the grownups can get in the spirit of things, too. The cocktails are available at the HUB Bar during regular HUB hours:
–Winter Sangria (HUB 226 red blend, Flying Leap Wine’s Orange Brandy, mulled wine reduction)
–HUB’s Coquito (house-made Puerto Rican-style eggnog with spiced rum)
–Tucson Boulevardier (Whiskey Del Bac, Campari, sweet vermouth)
–Santa’s Peanut Butter Cookies (Screwball peanut butter whiskey, creme de cacao, cream)
