Feeling that Arctic air? You know, the icy blast that smacked you in the face this morning, freezing your eyeballs open as you loaded the kids into the car? There’s definitely something blowing in and we know just what it is  – Santa, and he’s headed to the North Pole. Abel’s North Pole, that is. And he’s bringing a whole day of fun with him.

Abel_s_North_Front_copyOn Sunday, Dec. 15, bundle up and head north yourselves because there’s a whole lotta fun to be had at Abel’s North Grill and Tap House during their holiday event from 1 – 6 pm. The kids can take a train ride, decorate sugar cookies, bounce and slide their hearts out on inflatables, watch holiday movies and, of course, pose for photos from Smilebooth with the Man in Red himself from 2 – 5 pm.

What do you do while they’re having all that fun? Eat, drink and be merry! Adults can enjoy wine and spirit tasting while munching on tasty food. Or catch your favorite team as they tackle their way into the playoffs on one of many screens featuring NFL Sunday Ticket.

Admission to the festivities is free with the donation of an unwrapped toy for the Gateway Church Giving Tree Project. Find out more at www.abelsnorth.com or on the Facebook event page.
