Making Spirits Bright

By Published: November 5, 2023Eat & Drink

Tis’ the season to be sipping—be it naughty or nice or something on ice because Santa’s little helpers have workshopped the return of the award-winning Bad Elf Pop-Up Bar. The Silverton Casino’s signature cocktail lounge, Shady Grove, makes its winter wonderland debut November 4th, and it’s spruced up, decked out, and well stocked with jingle juice through New Year’s Day. Bring your best elf and fa la la-ollow the red and green kitsch to the tavern for twists on classic cocktails and a jolly good time.

According to festive fable, a society of elves summon season’s greetings by gathering holiday décor, recruiting retired representatives (shelf elves donated from fans across the nation), and mass-producing miracles nightly. String lights and garland ornament cozy corners while the fireplace crackles, rooftop reindeer prance, and elves swing from ceiling suspenders. Participate in the puzzle hunt to score a souvenir from Santa or earn a nightcap on the house for pinpointing peculiarly perched pixies.

Kick your cheer into gear with boozy beverages, like the Spicy Apple Cider or the Poinsettia and team up any Scrooges on the shot ski to sleigh the bah humbug blues. Secure your spot on the naughty list by pre-purchasing a Bad Elf experience package and settle in for a long winter’s nap post merrymaking.

The most wonderful time of the year is around the corner, so make it a November to remember by beholding preseason pageantry—there’s no time like the present to have yourself a merry little litmas.
