Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour is combining the fun of Santa Claus and its tiki theme this month.

The restaurant and bar at 1 W. Jefferson St. is teaming up with tiki connoisseur Jeff “Beachbum” Barry to host a “Sippin’ Santa” pop-up through Dec. 28. The event features festive tiki decorations and a specialized menu of colorful tiki beverages including the Kris Kringle Colada, the Christmas Eve of Destruction and the four-person Jingle Bowl. While you drink at Bitter & Twisted you can enjoy the “Sippin’ Santa” collectible barware and tiki mugs including the Surfin’ Santa Mug and Sippin’ Santa Tiki Tub. There also will be a pared down version of the restaurant’s original cocktail menu, along with the full menu of bar bites.

Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour will donate 10 percent of all retail sales from the holiday pop-up to the charity Action Against Hunger to support its efforts to help malnourished children and offer communities access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger.

Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. For details, visit
