Where to Day Drink in Humboldt This Festivus

Uh, I guess Happy Festivus, Humboldt!

Did I miss it? When did we officially start celebrating Frank Costanza's made-up holiday on Dec. 23? Not that I'm complaining, I just didn't know this was actually a thing. 

Apparently the Logger Bar got the message. Starting at noon, you can day drink around the Festivus pole while participating in hourly airing of grievances, competing in feats of strength -- there be prizes -- and playing free pool all day. We here at LoCO have to work, but you should go have fun. Jerks.

Or if you insist on sticking to your conformist holiday, note that Six Rivers Brewery is throwing a karaoke-infused Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. No pole, but your ears will have grievances to air by the end of it.
