'Twas the night before the night before Christmas with Christmas Eve-Eve at Red Door Kitchen and Bar, but let's let our friend, chef and veteran, Troy Graves tell the story: "Every Christmas Eve-Eve growing up, my mom made oyster stew at a local bar for people to stop by and have a bite and a drink before going off to their family's. I want to continue that tradition at Red Door with another dish I love. This Sunday I'll be making a big fat pot of pozole and serving it up on the house while it lasts. Stop in for $5 glasses of wine and select cocktails and share some laughs before you have to behave around the family." Admission FREE.
