We are celebrating Christmas on the 25th of December at Joe's Garage!

Please, NO DOGS tonight, as this is a child-centered event :)


Dear all, 

We want to celebrate the diversity of holiday celebrations (it doesn't have to be Christmas, it doesn't even have to be from this time of the year) that exist in our community, so we invite everyone to bring a dish to share! 

Are you able to, please consider bringing a dish to this potluck-style Christmas/holiday/celebration feast! Is there a dish that is special to you, your family, your culture? Are you feeling nostalgic for that one meal your grandparents used to always make for you? Make it, and come tell us why it's special to you! 

If you are unable to bring something, don't worry! Please still come! The more, the merrier! This is an event for everyone who wants somewhere to stay with warm food and friends.

We will still provide soup for free as usual, and a donation-based meal. Furthermore, we will make Christmas drinks and cakes. The donations will go to Palestine.

To get in the holiday spirit, we will swap presents! If you want to participate, bring a wrapped present (ideally one that most people would be happy to receive) and we will swap between us! 

For the children, please bring any children present you may have at home! If no children come, we will give out the presents at our regular free-shop on Saturday!
