Pop Up Bar Makes a Miracle on Wall St. in Norwalk

2 Dec

It’ll be a miracle if you don’t get even a bit tipsy

We’ve written about plenty of pop up restaurants that are here one day, then gone another . . . and we’ve eaten at plenty of them, too. But, it’s safe to say we’ve never checked out a pop up bar!

Well, that’s about to change with Miracle on Wall St., brought to you by John McNulty and one of many bar pop ups (DC, the East Village, and more) from Greg Boehm of Cocktail Kingdom. Miracle on Wall St. will run for 16 days total, so you’ll have plenty of chances to get your drank on. And, with some of the areas most celebrated and renowned mixologists manning the bar, you’ll want to visit many times. There  will be 8 holiday inspired cocktails, holiday beers, wine, and you can always order some classic mixed drinks.

Christmas time comes but once a year . . . and the same is true about the Greenwich Reindeer Festival and Town Stroll. Being Greenwich residents, we’re happy to report that we went last year and we had a blast. Yes, it’s true that one of our major highlights was getting cupcakes off of a food truck, but we’re a bit food-obsessed and crazy-headed.

So, we’re excited to share that the fun is back this year! Just look at some of the major highlights:

Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop

Dates: 11/28-12/24 from 12-6

You can also get photos with Santa (pets allowed) starting at $29.99 from 12-6 M-F, Saturday 9-6, and Sunday 9-5. $5 from each photo package goes to Kids in crisis and McArdle’s will donate $5 per wreath bought on 12/5 and 12/6.

And there’s even more going on that we can’t even begin to describe like a Live Nativity scene, horse drawn carriage rides, live holiday music, a bouncy castle, ice sculpting, free art exhibitions, and a Candlelight Open House. Check out more details here and this interactive map that you can bring up on your phone when you’re walking around to bring you to the next deal, free samples, special, event, or food truck.
