  • Schnapped
    Sign up for Schnapped, a delightful bartending challenge, upon arrival at the Holiday Hootenanny. You will be presented a few options for ingredients to use in a shot. The second challenge will be for you to create next year's signature Hoot drink.

    Drunken Dreidel
    Players sit in a circle with the dreidel in the center. Each person should have a beverage (with or without alcohol - safety is also the name of the game.) take turns spinning the dreidel and follow these rules:
    Shin (ש) - spinner drinks
    He (ה) - spinner picks someone to drink
    Nun (נ) - nothing happens
    Gimel (ג) - everyone but spinner drinks until the dreidel next falls

    Holiday Hootenanny Gift Exchange
    Place your gift under the tree and sign the guestbook in the dining room and mark the column labeled 'Gift?' At 9:00, we will randomly order the list, and you will select their gifts in the order determined by the list.
